Former Knicks PG Pablo Prigioni could see a New York reunion as a developmental coach, per The Post's Marc Berman.
With the addition of new PG Emmanuel Mudiay, the Knicks now have three point guards on their roster at age 25 or under. The front office is considering bringing in Prigioni to work exclusively with the point guards to further their development.
Prigioni was offered a job with the Knicks by team president Steve Mills this past offseason, but he decided to become the head coach of Baskonia of the Spanish League. However, that lasted only eight games as he resigned.
The 40-year-old is currently in New York working with the Nets, who he will spend the week with. It is not known whether or not the Nets are looking to hire him as well, though, Brooklyn has their own group of talented, young point guards.
Prigioni is "exploring" his interest in becoming a personnel member of a team, but with rumor that he stepped down from the Spanish League job because of family issues, he could pass on new employment.
Entering the NBA at 35, Prigioni spent three seasons with the Knicks before playing with the Clippers and Rockets. He averaged 3.9 points, three assists, and one steal per game in 187 games with the Knicks. He also played in the Spanish League, and for the Argentina national team.
Prigioni may not have been known for his scoring, but his tenacity on defense and cerebral nature made him a valuable asset in his four-year career NBA career.
