NBA Trade Rumors: Beno Udrih not pressuring New York Knicks to trade him


Earlier this week, it was made public that New York Knicks guard Beno Udrih had requested a trade. While that has seemingly started trade talks with other teams, a report has surfaced that seems to imply that the trade request was a soft one, and Udrih isn’t starting a riot over not having been traded yet.

According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, Udrih’s request to be traded still seems to stand, but he’s not pressuring the Knicks to make a quick deal.

Udrih is not pressing the issue, though his agent Marc Cornstein was expected to speak with Knicks president Steve Mills at the Garden before the game.

It’s clear that if the Knicks can make a trade involving a guard, they want it to be J.R. Smith. It’s possible that Smith could be attached to a deal for Udrih, but nothing like that has been discussed yet.

What has been discussed is Udrih wanting out of New York, but it’s apparently not as pressing an issue as it may seem.

    They should be trying to trade Felton and JR. Give Udrih more playing time like he had when Felton and Prigioni were out and he will succeed. Mix in Toure Murry and Prigioni. Felton is the worst PG the Knicks have on the roster but Woodson keeps sending him out there for 30 minutes a night.
