Pablo Prigioni’s agent, George Bass, told ESPNNewYork.com on Friday that the Argentine point guard “is interested in returning to the Knicks” for a second season.
“Pablo really enjoyed himself here, and he has interest in playing again next year,” Bass said. “He’s fallen in love with New York, there’s no doubt. The Knicks are just a first-class organization, so it’s been good all the way around.”
Last summer, Prigioni signed a one-year veteran’s minimum deal for $473,604. This offseason, the Knicks could make him a restricted free agent by giving him a qualifying offer before June 30. That offer for next season would be for $988,872 (the second-year veteran’s amount of $788,872 plus a non-Bird exception of $200,000).
While another team could present Prigioni a higher contract, the Knicks could match any offer being that he’s restricted. Two league insiders believe Prigioni’s max value could be around $2 million based on his success down the stretch this season and into the playoffs.
