Knicks Pursuing Beno Udrih

July 31 2013 at 9:45am CDT By Luke Adams

Having used their mini mid-level exception to sign Pablo Prigioni and Metta World Peace, the Knicks' spending flexibility is limited, with the team only able to offer minimum-salary contracts. However, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein (via Twitter), the Knicks are pursuing point guard Beno Udrih and are "trying hard" to convince him to accept the minimum.

Even with Prigioni back for 2013/14 and Raymond Felton still under contract, the Knicks are in the market for a third point guard after losing Jason Kidd to the head coaching ranks. The team has been linked to free agents like Sebastian Telfair, Delonte West, and plenty others who have since been signed by other clubs.

Udrih, however, seems to represent one of the best available options for the Knicks on the free agent market. After a stint as the starter in Sacramento, the nine-year NBA veteran has been a productive backup over the last two seasons for the Bucks and Magic, averaging 8.2 PPG, 4.6 APG, and a 14.2 PER in 66 total games for the two teams in 2012/13.

  1. Not really a fan of this not as gd of a shooter as it may seem cant penetrate the lane doesn’t have the quicks to stay in front of faster pg’s im not a big fan. My vote actually is leaning towards Daniel Gibson yes he’s in a little trouble right now but at least it wasn’t with a gun, drunk’n driving, or abusing a women, he got into a beef & broke the mans jaw, bad but charges will probably be dropped & there will be a settlement. At only 27 can resurrect his career which has been down 2 of the last 3yrs since LeBrick has been gone. Still a 41% career 3pt shooter, not a pure point but can get a team into sets a deadly shooter, gd defender + the plus of having his lovely lady Keisha Cole grace us at the Garden. This is a no brainer

  2. I feel like the knicks will find all the above on pg bobby brown he to me has the total package and has done a hell of a job over seas and was a good point guard in this league , anything right now is better or at least he is than the lame point guards that are currently on the market this year …

    1. Bobby Brown has signed overseas, he has an nba out clause dont know the terms of that but he is somewhat off the mkt. To me its go young Murry, Morris, Shelby, Jenkins, Nolan Smith. or mid vet like, Mo Williams(prob too expensive), Gibson, Telfair, Udrih, West, Harris. or an older vet like Baron Davis, if healthy he is the best of all of them but does he really have anything left?

  3. i believe despite what folks think that since MARBURY NY players are relishing the oppportunity to come back and ressurect their names and careers METTA signing sebastian telfair will allow him to ACTUALLY make his name all over AND help the KNICKS in the process he could b utilized and upgrade his career wit WOODY SEE JR IM, DONE
