NBA Rumors: San Antonio Spurs most interested in Beno Udrih?


Teams are always looking for point guard depth, so the recently released Beno Udrih should have no trouble finding a home after being waived by the New York Knicks.

One such team who is said to be showing heavy interest are the San Antonio Spurs and Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders hears San Antonio is the team he hears most linked to potentially signing Udrih.

The Spurs are the team I hear mentioned the most. I know Washington tried to sign him this summer, but with the arrival of Andre Miller that’s not nearly the pressing need it was.

The Spurs have been playing Patty Mills quite a bit lately (though he’s played well) and could be looking for some backcourt insurance, especially given their rash of injuries the past few months.

San Antonio is relatively familiar with Udrih (and vice versa) considering the veteran spent his first three seasons with the organization.

A signing is not imminent, though, it appears the Spurs do have some of the most heavy interest in Udrih.

The Spurs are also said to be interested in Metta World Peace.
