The New York Knicks are reportedly close to an agreement with 35-year-old point guard Pablo Prigioni.
A member of Argentina’s Olympic team, Prigioni met with coach Mike Woodson and general manager Glen Grunwald over two days in June and had a one-year offer from his Spanish team, Unicaja Laboral.
Sport Newspaper Ole reported Wednesday that Prigioni would sign with the Knicks, who were offering a one-year deal worth roughly the veteran’s minimum salary of $1.3 million.
The Knicks attempted to sign him three years ago, but weren’t able to come to terms.
Prigioni would join a roster with several point guards, including veteran Jason Kidd, Jeremy Lin and Iman Shumpert. Shumpert is likely to be out until mid-January recovering from left knee surgery.
