Beno Udrih Reportedly Asked the Knicks for a Trade


by Marcel Mutoni @ marcel_mutoni

31-year old veteran point guard Beno Udrih is one unhappy camper in New York, and according to multiple reports, he has asked the Knicks for a trade (which they will try to accommodate.)

Udrih has been openly and publicly criticized by head coach Mike Woodson, as the team continues to sink, and he’s looking for a way out of Gotham.


Udrih signed with the Knicks over the summer for the veteran’s minimum at $1.27 million. At the time, Udrih hoped to be a part of the Knicks’ three point guard rotation along with Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni. Udrih filled in as New York’s point guard while Felton and Prigioni were out with injuries but hasn’t been in the team’s rotation on a consistent basis when both point guards were healthy. With Felton and Prigioni at full health on Monday, Udrih played just four minutes in the Knicks’ loss to the Brooklyn Nets.

On the season, Udrih is averaging 5.9 points and 3.7 assists in 19.9 minutes per game. The nine-year veteran, holds career averages of 9.0 points and 3.6 assists per game. Udrih caused a minor stir earlier this season when he publicly questioned why he was the subject of criticism.

Following their latest disaster – a 103-80 beatdown by the visiting Brooklyn Nets on Monday – Tyson Chandler questioned the Knicks’ defensive game plan.

A visibly frustrated Carmelo Anthony refused to concede that all is lost for the Knickerbockers. Per Newsday:

“It’s not getting hard,” he said Monday. “Just right now, when you’re going through this situation, it just kind of blurs everything, kind of clouds everything — your thinking, your mentality. So for me, I just got to be patient and we’ll see what happens and works out.” The Knicks are 15-26, but Anthony said he doesn’t “want to believe” and “won’t accept” that their record reflects the team they are. But they are further from being title contenders than they have been since he forced a trade here in February 2011.

    So much for being one of the underrated pick ups of the summer.


    beno refuses to be woodys scapegoat.

    this team is circling the drain

    the third string point guard demanding a trade…dysfunction at it’s finest

    What is it with the old scrubs this season? Gerald Wallace routinely calling out the whole Celtics organization, Keith Bogans mad he’s not playing, Caron Butler mad he’s not starting, Stephen Jackson just mad. Now Beno freakin Udrih is requesting a trade? These guys should really just be happy to still be getting an NBA check.

  • Dfrance

    I knew I was missing someone. Thanks, adding him to the list!


    the only one i think that needs to be quiet is bogans. everyone else can have a greater impact if given the chance

  • Anthony

    Stephen Jackson….tell’em why you mad son! You got hot joints son! (Pre 2k Mad Rapper reference)….just had to!

  • Dfrance

  • Slamson

    And Andre Miller, too

  • Daniel Noel

    Udrih can actually play, Knicks are using him wrong. In Sactown, he played well, sometimes players need to stay were they are at and stop hoping something changes in another uniform. Pacers or Heat or OKC could use him as a reliable reserve point guard safety measure.

    Guy is making the minimum, which means he has one foot out of the NBA door, and he criticizes his team and asks for a trade? Not the best way to audition for future jobs.
