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.
