The New York Knicks don’t have much wiggle room financially as they’ve used their mini mid-level exception, but that hasn’t stopped them from attempting to sign point guard Beno Udrih.
Per ESPN’s Marc Stein:
Hearing: Knicks can only offer minimum, but I’m told they’re trying hard to convince free-agent PG Beno Udrih to take it and come to NYC
Udrih, a former San Antonio Spur had his best seasons as a member of the Sacramento Kings where he was a starter. After leaving Sacramento, Udrih’s career seemingly hit a wall in Milwaukee where he and the coaching staff struggled to see eye-to-eye. Udrih was moved to Orlando during last seasons trade deadline where he rounded back into his normal form.
Tired of being stuck on losing squads, Udrih is hoping to latch on with a winning team, something the Knicks are hoping will be enough to lure the Slovenian guard to the Big Apple. The Knicks, who are relatively thin at point guard as well could offer Udrih a significant amount of floor time assuming he can beat out either Raymond Felton or Pablo Prigioni.
