Beno Udrih Signs One-Year Deal With Knicks (UPDATED)
The Knicks have found their third-string point guard.
Beno Udrih has agreed to a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum.
“Beno is a solid addition to our backcourt where he will give us more depth and flexibility,” Knicks GM Glen Grunwald said. “He is a talented and experienced floor general who brings championship experience to our locker room.”
Udrih, a 31-year-old left-hander from Slovenia, will back up Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni.
With the signings of Udrih and big man Jeremy Tyler, the Knicks now have 14 players on the roster, with one available spot.
Udrih averaged 8.2 points and 4.6 assists last season with four teams. He has made 243 career starts in 628 games.
The Knicks also reportedly worked out Bobby Brown, but he has signed with a Chinese club.
Memphis and San Antonio also pursued Udrih, the Post reported.
