Baker, out of Wichita State, appeared in 92 games (14 starts) over three seasons with New York (2016-18), posting averages of 3.3 points, 1.8 assists and 1.5 rebounds over 14.7 minutes. He is averaging 1.3 points and 1.2 assists over 9.7 minutes in 11 games this season. The Scott City, KS native was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent on Aug. 1, 2016, before re-signing on Aug. 7, 2017.
“Ron is a true professional and we thank him for all of his contributions during his time with the Knicks,” said Knicks President Steve Mills. “His dedication and passion for the game are unquestioned and have been truly appreciated by our fans and organization. We wish him all the best.”The Knicks are committed to Trier, an undrafed rookie averaging averaging 11.3 points and 3.1 rebounds for the Knicks (8-21). He has scored more than 20 points four times, including a season-high 25 with 8 rebounds and 4 assists against New Orleans on Nov. 23. “We’ve had some talks about it and it’s something that I’m sure we’ll figure out soon,” Trier told me of his contract situation in October for this Arizona Daily Star feature. “That’s all I can really say. It’s kind of between management and me and my agent and stuff like that.”
