According to Chris Sheridan’s twitter account, the Knicks will replace Chris Duhon with Sergio Rodriguez as their starting point guard.
Duhon has struggled to run Mike D’Antoini’s offense this season. He is currently shooting an abysmal 34.4% from the field this season, and his 10.12 PER is the worst mark of his career.
Rodriguez is a talented 23-year old point guard out of Spain, and has shown tremendous promise at times as a playmaker. He was stuck behind some quality guards during his time in Portland and Tyreke Evans during his time in Sacramento, and never averaged more than 15.3 minutes per game. New York is eager for help in its backcourt, and should give Rodriguez plenty of time to stretch his wings. D’Antoni’s wide-open style is perfect for Rodriguez, who loves to find shooters and play in the open court. D’Antoni’s Suns actually drafted Rodriguez in 2006, but sold the pick to Portland.
Amidst all the clamor about the 2010 cap space the Knicks acquired at the trade deadline, they might end up getting some value out of the actual players they received.
