At age 35, no rookie is older than Pablo Prigioni, who is playing for the NBA for the first time this season after a long career overseas. In 54 games with the Knicks, Prigioni has put up respectable numbers for a third point guard, including a .402 3PT% and a 13.6 PER. However, he tells Marc Berman of the New York Post that while he doesn't intend to retire, he's unsure whether he'll play in the NBA for more than one season.
"I will play for some team next year — where, I don’t know," Prigioni said. "It could be in the NBA. It could be the Spanish League. I need to go to the summer, take it by day-by-day and think about it. But I [will] listen to the Knicks."
Prigioni, who is earning the rookie minimum, added that when he signed with the Knicks last summer, the team asked him whether he wanted a one-year or two-year deal, and he asked for just a single year. According to Berman, the Knicks are anticipating that Prigioni may leave, and could target a replacement in this June's draft, when they'll likely be picking in the early- to mid-20s.
