   2017 NBA Manifesto

Beno Udrih
PG, 6’3, 205lbs, 34 years old, 13 years of experience

Very effective in his limited role, and a good bounce-back campaign. When the team needed some stability from the point guard spot, Udrih provided it in the most unflashy ways possible, managing his second high-est true shooting percentage in the last six years as well as posting his best annual turnover rate in that same time span. As priorities go, the third string point guard spot is low, but as third string point guards go, Udrih is a good one. His stable hand could be further beneficial going forward based on the outcome of the Jackson situation.

Player Plan: Expiring one year minimum salary contract. Worthy of another depending on how other moves shake out.

   Ten Of The Best New Contracts This Offseason

Beno Udrih – New York Knicks

Udrih has long been a Collison-like caliber of player, a mediocre starter you need to upgrade or a quality backup salvaging your season, whose reputation would be a lot higher had he not spent the past six seasons outside of the playoffs. He is now the wrong side of 30, but now that he’s off the big contract, he represents a steal. Udrih signed for one season at the minimum salary a mere few months after averaging 10.2 points and 6.1 assists per game for Orlando. He serves as the thoroughly unspectacular yet ultimately polished player who silently and consistently makes his team better, commodities every team needs but not every team has. Udrih can run the pick and roll, shoot with range, and manipulate a defense to find open shooters – put simply, offenses are better when he runs them. And he’s also not as bad defensively as his reputation suggests.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
