Expectations for Prigioni

7/28/2013

Speaking with ESPNNewYork.com's Jared Zwerling, New York Knicks guard Pablo Prigioni appeared to be realistic about expectations for himself this season.



"I think I have to continue working on my 3-point shot," he said. "This is one of the important things, and keep working on my body because I'm not a big talent physically. I need to work my body every day if I want to compete and fight with some young guys that are stronger, faster."

That may be an understatement for the 36-year-old, 6-foot-3, 185-pounder. Surely, he'll have a tough time keeping up with most other NBA guards, but he's the only other genuine PG on the roster behind starter Raymond Felton, so he likely will see more than the 16 minutes per game he posted last season. He only attempted 1.7 3s per game during the 2012-13 campaign, but he knocked down a solid 39.6 percent of them. Most of the little bit of scoring he puts up in 2013-14 should come from beyond the arc.
