According to multiple sources, the New York Knicks are looking to trade Argentinian Point Guard Pablo Prigioni for a second round draft pick.
Sitting at 6-36, the New York Knicks are trying to give more minutes to younger players, and with Prigioni being 37-years-old, he doesn’t exactly fit into the rebuilding Knicks plans.
The point guard is in the third year of his NBA career, and has gained a reputation of being a crafty passer and pesky defender who can also hit the three ball. He’s averaging 4.8 PPG, 2.5 APG, and 1.1 SPG in 19.1 MPG. He’s also shooting 38% from deep.
Prigioni was also shopped this past summer, and the Utah Jazz showed substantial interest. Whether or not they’re still interested is yet to be seen.
Prigioni is owed $1.6 million this year, and $1.7 million next year with only $290,000 guaranteed.
