Yeah, he might be a Knick real soon.

Prigioni, who has played in the Spanish League since 1999-2000, met with Knicks brass last week for two days, including a dinner with president Glen Grunwald and coach Mike Woodson. The Knicks know the Spanish League better than most NBA teams their longtime European scout, Kevin Wilson, lives in Barcelona. 1yOH4qd5C

Not sure how to feel on this.

Im pretty sure hed be better than a lot of young point guards in the NBA you get, Szczerbiak told The Post. Hes really been through the wars. Spain is a real pressure cooker. Every game is playoff intensity. The NBA, its more in the playoffs. He has great experience in tough situations and hes a good leader.

Hes 35, but he has a great body, Szczerbiak said of Prigioni. Im sure hes slowed down a little, but hes still got pretty good quickness. For 35, hes got the right kind of body wiry, never been overweight. Hes like Steve Nash that way. Youd think he was younger than 35 the way he looks.

So we go from Mike Bibby to a dude even older with no NBA experience.

Maybe he might prove us all wrong, but if we're talking about minimum salaries then I'd rather have Nate Rob back at that price.
