New York, NY (Sports Network) – The New York Knicks have signed veteran
point guard Beno Udrih to a reported one-year contract, the team announced
Thursday.

According to Newsday, the deal is for the veteran’s minimum of $1.272 million.

Udrih split the 2012-13 season, his ninth in the NBA, between Milwaukee and
Orlando and averaged 8.2 points, 4.6 assists and 2.1 rebounds over a combined
66 games.

The 31-year-old Slovenian lends further experience to the backcourt, where the
Knicks are also bringing back point guards Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni.

“Beno is a solid addition to our backcourt where he will give us more depth
and flexibility,” said Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald. “He is a talented
and experienced floor general who brings championship experience to our locker
room.”

A first-round pick (28th overall) of San Antonio in the 2004 draft, Udrih has
averaged 9.1 points, 3.6 assists and 2.2 rebounds over 628 career games with
the Spurs, Sacramento, Milwaukee and Orlando. He was a part of two NBA
championships with the Spurs in 2005 and 2007.
