The New York Knicks have interest in signing Trey Burke from their G League affiliate. Burke signed with the Knicks in October but was immediately released and sent to the Westchester Knicks.
Burke was the G League Player of the Month in December.
The chances of losing Burke increases if he's not called up before the G League Showcase, which starts Jan. 10 in Toronto.
The Knicks would have to waive a player to create a roster spot for Burke.
"I still believe that I am one of the best scorers in the world, and that has to be my mentality," Burke recently told NBA.com. "Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but I believe that given the opportunity I could help a team win at the NBA level."
Jarrett Jack and Frank Ntilikina have struggled to get the Knicks' offense going at the point guard position.
