According to an NBA source, former Knicks point guard Pablo Prigioni is trying to decide whether to begin his coaching career in Spain or the United States before he engages in specific talks with the Knicks. The source said the Knicks extended an open invitation to Prigioni to talk about a coaching spot, likely as a developmental coach. Prigioni began his apprenticeship as head coach of one of the teams in the Chicago draft combine 10 days ago and spoke with Knicks general manager Steve Mills. Prigioni told The Post in Chicago he might lean toward Spain for family reasons. Prigioni spent nearly a full season — Jackson’s first as team president — playing the triangle before requesting a trade to a contender at the deadline in February 2015 (he went to Houston).
Q: This was your 10th EuroLeague season. How important was the EuroLeague for your development as a player? Pablo Prigioni: “Look, the EuroLeague was the maximum motivation anyone could have. Playing the EuroLeague allows you to play against the best teams and the best players in Europe. It has always been a great challenge and I took it that way. I enjoyed a lot competing all around Europe against the best. I always said over the last few years, while I was in the NBA, that playing the EuroLeague had nothing to envy in comparison to playing in the NBA because of its competition level and the excitement it brings. I don’t know how to express it because the Spanish League is also really strong, it has always been, but the EuroLeague was the biggest step to take in Europe.”
