REPORT: The Knicks are interested in signing G-League guard Trey Burke

New, comments

He might help an offense that has turned crappy in recent weeks.

NBA: New York Knicks at Washington Wizards Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Knicks’ scoring attack is a veritable poop stew and the moment—with extra poop—so it would be nice if they had the services of a scoring guard who attended the University of Michigan.

No, I’m not referring to Tim Hardaway Jr. According to Stefan Bondy, Hardaway’s old college teammate, point guard Trey Burke, has caught the eye of some in the organization while plying his trade for the Knicks’ G-League affiliate in Westchester.

The Knicks’ offense is floundering and there’s a desire from some in the organization to call up their G-League star Trey Burke, a source told the Daily News. However, there’s also a big obstacle to such a move — the team would need to create a roster spot.

Signing Burke would certainly be a good move from a public relations perspective. The tiny scoring dynamo was just named G-League player of the month for December, during which he averaged 29.7 points per game.

Burke scored 28 points in Westchester’s last game, a loss to the Grand Rapids Drive.

Bondy reports that the Knicks would rather make a trade (*cough* Kyle O’Quinn) than release another player off their 15-man roster (*cough* Ramon Sessions).

Would Trey Burke be a good addition? Can the former lottery pick turn around his career in New York after underwhelming stops in Utah and Washington? What do you think, Knicks fans?
