Found August 10, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Beno Udrih won titles with the Spurs in 2005 and 2007 but had since lost that exciting feeling of being in the title chase. That’s why the Knicks got their man Thursday. The 6-foot-3 Slovenian point guard signed with the Knicks for less money agreeing to his veterans minimum of $1.27 million as the Knicks put a solid capper to their summer maneuverings. They were desperate for a third point guard because they like to pair Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni together in the backcourt. After seasons with the Kings Bucks and Magic Udrih wanted to win again. His agent Marc Cornstein said Udrih had “many offers’’ including at least one for more than the minimum. “He had been on rebuilding teams and he was ready to go back to the big stage’’ Cornstein told The Post. “It was really important for him to go back to competing for a title.’’
