Beno Udrih to Skip EuroBasket Tournament
In news that’s good for the Knicks, but not so good for Slovenia, point guard Beno Udrih has opted not to play in the EuroBasket tournament next month, the Slovenian team announced on Monday.
That means the Knicks won’t have to worry about Udrih suffering an injury during the tournament that would prevent him from playing in training camp in October.
Udrih’s EuroBasket absence comes as no surprise. He last played for his national team in 2006, during the World Championships. He reportedly told the Slovenian coaches that he would play this year back in January. But he removed himself from consideration in July during free agency. His absence was confirmed on Monday when Slovenia released its roster.
