NBA Trade Rumors: Wizards interested in Knicks Beno Udrih

The Washington Wizards have been in the market for a backup point guard for a while now and it looks as if they have somewhat turned their attention to New York Knicks point guard Beno Udrih.

ESPN’s Marc Stein reported the news and adds that Udrih is high on the Wizards wish list along with disgruntled Denver Nuggets point guard Andre Miller.

 

Udrih reportedly requested the Knicks to trade him in January after being upset with not only a lack of playing time but the fact that Knicks head coach Mike Woodson ridiculously continued to throw him under the bus and blame him for the Knicks struggles. Woodson went as far to blame Udrih for passing J.R. Smith the ball on his idiotic three-point attempt that cost the Knicks a win against the Houston Rockets.

While Udrih isn’t a great option for the Knicks, he is much better than Raymond Felton. But while Felton continues to get over 30 min per game, Udrih has been buried at the end of the Knicks bench.

In the Knicks last 18 games, Udrih has played only a combined 40 minutes and has received 13 DNP’s in that span, including not seeing a minute of time in any of the Knicks past eight games.

It goes without saying that I expect Udrih to be moved prior to the February 20 deadline, but it will be a minor move as the Knicks won’t get much for him.
