Default Knicks add 35-year-old PG Pablo Prigioni

The Knicks also made official the signing of point guard Pablo Prigioni yesterday. The 6-foot-3 Argentinean is a veteran of the Spanish ACB League.
The 35-year-old is the third point guard the Knicks have acquired this summer after Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd, and also is a member of the Argentinean National Team. In Sundayís 86-80 loss to the U.S. Menís National Team in Barcelona, Prigioni started and finished with eight points, five rebounds and six assists in 33 minutes, including going 2-for-3 from 3-point range.
The Knicks now have 14 players under contract, including a non-guaranteed contract for forward Chris Copeland.

NY Daily News:

The Knicks signed the 35-year-old Argentine point guard last week after pursing him for three seasons. It was the final stage of a complete facelift for the teamís point guard position. Toney Douglas, Baron Davis, Mike Bibby and Lin are all gone and the feeling is that the Knicks have upgraded by adding Kidd, Felton and Prigioni.

A lot depends on Feltonís conditioning and whether Kidd, who turns 40 in March, can stay healthy. The x-factor, like Lin last season, could be Prigioni, who has been one of Europeís top point guards for years.

His Olympic teammates and fellow NBA players, Manu Ginobili and Luis Scola, rave about Prigioni. Torontoís Jose Calderon, who once played with Prigioni in Spain, calls him the consummate point guard. He even has a strong endorsement from Carmelo Anthony, which can only help.

But for fans looking for Prigioni to be the next Lin, forget it. They are two different players, which may be a good thing for the Knicks.
