Prigioni has one year left on his pact, but only $300,000 of his $1.7 million is guaranteed. “No, no, no,’’ Prigioni, who missed his second straight game with a hip injury on Friday, said when asked if he was intrigued about playing in a new American city. “I’m just focused here. “No reason to think about it, it’s directly out of our hands. I focus on the next practice, supporting the guys, keep moving on. Just focusing on the team and give my best. In the summer we will see. Now just focusing on our team.” New York Post

Pablo Prigioni was a late scratch Tuesday night, with the Knicks announcing a sudden hip injury 20 minutes before tipoff of their game with the Celtics. The team had not disclosed the injury during Derek Fisher’s pregame press conference, leading to speculation the club didn’t want to risk injuring Prigioni any further because it is trying to trade him. Prigioni sat on the bench in a suit as the Knicks lost, 108-97. According to a league source, Prigioni is on the trade block with the Feb. 19 deadline approaching. New York Post

"For the last three months, we've heard from European teams interested in Pablo's services," agent Claudio Villanueva told HoopsHype. "We are not worried about his situation in New York. If something happens, it happens. Three of four clubs in Europe have reached out to us already, but we have not pursued anything there, of course. We just know there will be options available for him whatever happens." HoopsHype
