08:12 AM ET 06.19 | On New York's radar in 2009, Pablo Prigioni may have a second shot at Broadway. The Knicks, in widening their search for a veteran point guard to be a tandem with Jeremy Lin, met last week with [Prigioni], a 35-year-old on Argentina's Olympic team. Prigioni, who played last season in Spain for Unicaja Laboral, had a two-day visit, dinner with Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald and coach Mike Woodson. Prigioni, considered a good passer and clutch shotmaker, will square off against Team USA at the London Games next month. His Spanish team, a source said, is offering him a one-year deal. The Knicks likely would want him for either the $2 million lower exception or $1.4 million veteran's minimum.

NY seems to like they PG's older or cheap. Bibby, Davis and now this guy is 35 shoot they were looking into Nash too but he will not come cheap.

I've seen him play - He's actually pretty good and this is probably plan "Z" if the Union is not able to get the Bird rights reinstated for Lin and Novak. If it doesn't then they will have to spend most of their moolah on Lin and go for cheap "Fire sale" help just not around the league but the world.

Pretty effing far it appears.

He's been basura ever since the shoulder surgery - Not the same defensive and sometimes streaky PG he was prior to the injury.

He needs to visit Kobe's doctor in Germany!
