Pablo Prigioni, as he trains for the FIBA World Championship with Argentina, spoke about the Knicks over the weekend (NY Post, July 26).
Prigioni played with new Knick Jose Calderon in the Spanish League and looks forward to teaming up with him again.
“He is a great player and very good professional, a great 3-point shooting guy,” Prigioni said.
He also said that new head coach Derek Fisher is a “perfect” leader for the Knicks this year. Prigioni sees these developments as the tools for a successful Knicks season.
“I’m very excited with the changes that the team is doing and I’m completely sure we will play much better,” he said.
