We told you the other day that the New York Knicks were interested in bringing in Beno Udrih as a third-line point guard with the team. Clearly they thought that was going so well they also have started talks with Jannero Pargo for the same role.

The Knicks can only offer the minimum and Udrih’s agent told the New York Post he was looking at options.

Marc Cornstein, the agent for free-agent point guard Beno Udrih, told The Post five teams are still in the mix for his client’s services. The Knicks appear long shots because they only have the $1.4 million veteran’s minimum to offer.

“If he signs with the Knicks the reasons will not be because of the money,’’ Cornstein said. “It would be a disservice to say they’re long shots or favorites. He’s examining the situations.’’

They’re long shots.

But Udrih may want to play in some postseason games that matter more than just get as much money as possible. Maybe not. But he’s got options, apparently.

      Hell yeah he is. IDK why people on here are so down on him. He’s a perfect backup PG to have on any team, much less as a 3rd stringer. But who are the other 4 teams??

    Very few good players would want to play in New York for that kind of salary. The Knicks are hoping to find a diamond in the rough and Dolan’s too cheap to go over the cap.

      How is Dolan too cheap to go over the cap…. He has always been willing to spend money on players (Granted most of the time not on the right players) but never the less Dolan is alot of things but cheap isn’t one of them.

      The problem is the Knicks are already well over the cap and used up most of their 3 million midlevel exception thats why they can only offer Udrith the Vet’s min.
