NBA Trade Rumors: San Antonio Spurs eyeing Beno Udrih trade


The San Antonio Spurs usually aren’t a team that makes a lot of moves at the trade deadline, as good teams rarely need to make moves to be better, they simply are open to the idea. San Antonio is apparently very open to the idea of a trade this year and have eyes set on a point guard out East.

According to Marc Berman of the NY Post, the Spurs may be interested in acquiring former guard Beno Udrih from the New York Knicks.

Now that Mike Woodson has banished Udrih and he has asked for a trade, the Spurs might be a candidate for the Slovenian point guard who has two rings from his time in San Antonio.

Former Knicks general manager Scott Layden, now in the front office of San Antonio, was at Wednesday’s game scouting the Knicks.

A trade would make sense, as Udrih used to play for the Spurs and San Antonio could use depth at guard. The Wizards apparently want Udrih too, which means it comes down to whether or not the Spurs can make a better deal for the guard or not.

    OMG – it just him me. Coach Woodson hates Udrih because Udrih kept on yelling at him. Why would Udrih do that? It must be because Udrih played under Gregg Popovich and, so, knew that Woodson was being an idiot.

    this is a bullshit rumor and you know it. the deepest part of the spurs bench is at PG. no way they even made the call.
