Beno Udrih set to join Knicks
The Knicks have emerged as the favorite to sign 31-year-old Slovenian point guard Beno Udrih to a $1.27 million minimum contract, according to two sources. An announcement could come as soon as Thursday.

The Knicks will consider it a great value signing since Udrih made $7 million last season, leaving the Knicks long shots to land him. But the market apparently dried up for the left-handed veteran who has played on four teams, including Orlando and Milwaukee last season when he combined for 66 games.

Not bad. I'd be inclined to start him.

Re: Beno Udrih set to join Knicks
At this point in Free Agency, this isn't a bad move at all. I personally think he can beat out Prigioni for the backup role if he's given an equal shot to. It's unfortunately that Glen Grunwald's inept ways force us to get excited abotu minor moves like this but hey....whatchagonnado? :confusedshrug:

Re: Beno Udrih set to join Knicks
The 6-foot-3 Slovenian point guard signed with the Knicks for less money, agreeing to his veterans minimum of $1.27 million as the Knicks put a solid capper to their summer maneuverings. They were desperate for a third point guard because they like to pair Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni together in the backcourt.

After seasons with the Kings, Bucks and Magic, Udrih wanted to win again. His agent, Marc Cornstein, said Udrih had “many offers,’’ including at least one for more than the minimum.
