Report: Beno Udrih could return to San Antonio via trade

San Antonio tried to re-sign Beno Udrih this summer, he bolted instead for the bright lights and big city of New York.

There he is buried at the end of the bench on a bad team, almost never playing for coach Mike Woodson. If you had front row seats to watch this Knicks team you’d be hoping for a way out, too.

That prayer could be answered in the form of a trade back to San Antonio, reports the New York Post.

Now that Mike Woodson has banished Udrih and he has asked for a trade, the Spurs might be a candidate for the Slovenian point guard who has two rings from his time in San Antonio.

Former Knicks general manager Scott Layden, now in the front office of San Antonio, was at Wednesday’s game scouting the Knicks.

The Spurs would like the depth and Udrih has a couple of rings from his time with the Spurs, but I would be surprised if San Antonio offered anything more than a second round pick for the point guard.

This is the kind of minor deal you can expect to see at the trade deadline. If you’re hoping for blockbusters, it could be a disappointing next week for you.

    Trade him to Washington for Rice Jr.

    Yes, just what the Spurs need, another smallish guard.

      Because Parker, Mills, Joseph, and De Colo aren’t enough PGs, right?

        Marc Cornstien should be prosecuted for gross agentry. It’s obviously a rumor with no substance, designed to elicit interest in his client and get him the F out of NY.
