“The Knicks scouted Pablo Prigioni and Chris Copeland wisely. Both players dominated internationally. Kevin Wilson, the Knicks’ main overseas scout who is well-respected throughout the league, took notice. Prigioni and Copeland immediately made an impression in the preseason with their playmaking. Now, with some injuries, they’ve been playing well in increased minutes.”
Tommy DeeThe Knicks have effectively realized that without picks and a lot of cap space there is a ton of ways to bring in NBA ready talent and Europe is a good place to start. James White hasn’t quite worked out, but Copeland and Prigioni have been two very important pieces in terms of depth thus far this season. Great scouting.
