The New York Knicks will sign free-agent point guard Beno Udrih, reports Al Iannazzone of Newsday. The 31-year-old split the 2012/13 season between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic, averaging 8.2 points and 4.6 assists per game.
Udrih's one-year contract with New York will be worth the league's minimum, Iannazzone says. That's the same figure which Orlando paid Ronnie Price earlier this summer to fill Udrih's role as Jameer Nelson's backup.
Despite a strong showing after joining the team via a trade-deadline deal, Udrih wasn't in the Magic's future plans, as Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reported in July.
Udrih's unsurprising departure leaves Nelson, Price, E'Twaun Moore, Doron Lamb, and Victor Oladipo to vie for Orlando's minutes at the point. Moore, Lamb, and Oladipo will likely play most of their minutes at shooting guard.
