Beno Udrih is the latest player to choose club over country.

Slovenia is hosting EuroBasket this summer and the team’s coach announced their national team and Udrih was not on the list. Udrih has battled injuries in the past and he signed up to be a point guard for the Knicks, a position that has been like a magnet for injuries the past couple seasons, so this is the safe play.

Udrih and Pablo Prigioni will back up Raymond Felton at the point for the Knicks this season. It is going to be interesting to see how those minutes shake out as the season wears on.

Slovenia will be fine, they still have Goran Dragic at the point and other quality players including Bostjan Nachbar. EuroBasket tips off Sept. 7.
