Many Knicks fans are hoping against hope that the team could sign Westchester guard Trey Burke to help with their scoring woes. The jitterbug guard still plays in the G-League, though—for the moment, anyway—so let’s check in on Burke on the W-Knicks, shall we?
Westchester shrugged off an early double-digit deficit to down the Canton Charge on Friday night, 95-90. All five Westchester starters scored in double-figures, but there’s only one guy on fans’ minds at the moment.
Trey Burke (affiliate player): 23 points on 9-18 shooting (3-10 from three), 5 assists, 4 rebounds
Burke was clutch as hell for the W-Knicks down the stretch, coming up with a big steal, a couple buckets, and a huge kick-out to Nigel Hayes for the corner three. Speaking of threes, Burke took nearly as many (10) as the entire Knicks team Friday in Miami (13). Burke is shooting 41.4% from beyond the arc this season, so he presumably has the green light in Westchester coach Mike Miller’s offense.
Anyway, the Trey Burke Watch continues Sunday as the W-Knicks take on the Austin Spurs.
