According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Knickerbockers are trying to sign 35-year-old point guard Pablo Prigioni out of the Spanish League. The Argentinian is expected to take the offer and come to the Big Apple for his shot in the NBA.
Prigioni is on Argentina's Olympic team this year and was a major part of their gold medal run in the 2004 games.
If the deal is agreed upon by Prigioni and the Knicks, FIBA paperwork would have to be taken care of before anything becomes official. However, that's not expected to be a stumbling block.
