NBA DRAFT COMPARISON: OJ MAYO/DION WAITERS
PLAYER SUMMARY: Trier was just coming on during his freshmen year when he suffered a setback. He broke the 4th metacarpal in his shooting (right) hand and will be out for another 2-4 weeks. His absence has set the Wildcats back and will need the freshmen to return to his form if they have any shot of doing anything during conference tournament time. He projects to be the third straight Arizona freshmen to leave early for the NBA, joining Aaron Gordon and Stanley Johnson, respectively.
When healthy, he is a very aggressive SG who likes to attack the rim. He is a very good-ball handler for a SG with an excellent mid-range game. He is considered an excellent athlete and has the ability to score in bunches. Arizona will definitely miss his scoring ability the next couple of weeks. He has a scorer’s mentality and you can see that when you watch him play. The ability is there for him to become a very good defender, however I believe he needs to want it more when playing defense. He tends to get a little lackadaisical in my opinion.
Trier is a little undersized for the SG position but has a nice frame. The freshmen will need to improve setting others up. He looks for his shot a little too much. He needs to become a more willing passer. A player with his ability and talent should be averaging more than 1.2 assists per game.
I believe Allonzo Trier has a lot of potential. However, I also think he fits in the same category as around 6-10 other players in the draft. There is not much separating a lot of the undersized shooting guards. As I have stated in previous NBA Draft prospect profiles, the NBA Draft combine and individual workouts with NBA teams will be crucial for Trier. I expect him to make a full recovery from his broken hand and continue his scoring ways for Arizona this season.
