Knicks Remain Focused On Beno Udrih

A report last week suggested that the Knicks were attempting to convince Beno Udrih to accept a minimum-salary deal to play in New York, and it seems the presence of other suitors hasn't diminished the Knicks' interest. According to Ian Begley of (via Twitter), Udrih remains the club's top free agent priority, and the Knicks may not sign another player until they hear from the point guard.

The Knicks aren't necessarily considered long shots for Udrih, but he's reportedly still hoping he can earn more than the minimum, and there are at least four other teams with interest. If even one of those clubs is willing to make an offer worth more than the minimum, it could make things difficult on the Knicks.

Nonetheless, New York is preparing its Plan B just in case, according to Begley, who tweets that the team is bringing in Bobby Brown and two other players for workouts. Brown has an agreement with China's Dongguan Leopards, but can opt out for an NBA deal up until August 15th, so the Knicks want to take another first-hand look at him before then.

The Knicks are hoping to eventually sign a point guard to complement the team's existing duo of Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni.
