Beno Udrih has reached an agreement to return to the Grizzlies next season, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Udrih was acquired by Memphis from the New York Knicks in late February and averaged only 5.5 minutes in his 10 games played with the Grizzlies during the regular season. He managed to salvage his season with a strong playoff showing, scoring nearly eight points per game while shooting over 40 percent from the field. The deal will be for two years at the bi-annual exception, starting at $2.1 million for the first year with a partial guarantee on the second.

The Grizzlies are reportedly "unlikely" to re-sign unrestricted free agent Beno Udrih.

Memphis claimed Udrih off waivers last February and he stepped into a solid role once Nick Calathes was suspended, but it appears he'll look for his next contract outside of Memphis. The 31-year-old veteran isn't likely to earn more than a backup role regardless of where he signs.

Grizzlies PG Beno Udrih will take on a bigger role in the playoffs with Nick Calathes suspended 20 games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy.

Calathes was averaging 15 minutes per game and he proved to be invaluable when Mike Conley missed games in February, but his playing time will now fall to Udrih. Although he's only played a handful of minutes with Memphis, Udrih is a career 46.1 percent shooter (35.6 percent from downtown) and he boasts a solid assist-to-turnover ratio of 2.5.

The Grizzlies have claimed Beno Udrih off waivers, according to

He'll compete for backup minutes with Nick Calathes on his new team. Udrih played just 19 minutes per game with the Knicks and quickly fell out of favor with coach Mike Woodson. He can be ignored in most leagues.

The buyouts of both Beno Udrih and Metta World Peace will become official on Monday.

Udrih was brought on in the offseason to backup Raymond Felton, however Mike Woodson refused to give Udrih minutes. Both MWP and Udrih fell out of Woodson's rotation, and an exit from New York can only help their values. However, without knowing where they will land, it's impossible to say exactly how their values will be affected. Stay tuned for more updates.

Beno Udrih is expected to be bought out by the New York Knicks.

Beno and Metta World Peace share the same agent and MWP's latest Twitter rants may have sealed the pair's fate in New York. No word yet on where either player will end up, but both could make a nice impact on a team headed toward the playoffs.

The Wizards and Nuggets are said to be interested in acquiring guard Beno Udrih from the Knicks, according to the New York Post.

Udrih said the Wizards tried to acquire him last summer, while the Nuggets are reportedly offering SF Jordan Hamilton, who has been starting with PG Ty Lawson out with a broken rib. With Iman Shumpert's knee injury, Udrih now appears to be the Knick most likely to be traded, so it would appear that congratulations are in order.
Feb 20 - 9:13 AM

The New York Post speculates that little-used Knicks PG Beno Udrih may be traded to the Spurs in the coming week.

Udrih isn't part of Mike Woodson's rotation and he reportedly asked for a trade in late January, on top of which Spurs executive Scott Layden was seen scouting the Knicks on Wednesday. The Spurs roster is replete with PGs, but Udrih hasn't played in nine consecutive games and any trade would be a positive development for his dim fantasy outlook.
Feb 14 - 9:45 AM

Beno Udrih (illness) will not be available for the Knicks on Thursday.

This makes two straight DNPs and he'll be questionable to return for Saturday's game, but his absence shouldn't impact any fantasy lineups.
Jan 30 - 6:37 PM

Beno Udrih is not available on Tuesday due to an illness.

There have been all sorts of rumors on Udrih, so there will likely be some more after Beno not playing tonight with the Knicks a bit shorthanded sans Iman Shumpert (shoulder). He has no fantasy value.
Jan 28 - 9:03 PM

Beno Udrih downplayed a report that he's asked the Knicks to trade him, calling New York his "first option."

"I'm a Knick. I want to be here," Udrih said. He's tumbled down the rotation since Raymond Felton's return and even as a starter he was a whipping boy for coach Mike Woodson, so it's reasonable to think that Udrih's agent has at least broached the topic of a trade.
Jan 23 - 3:24 PM

Beno Udrih has requested a trade from the Knicks following Monday's game against the Nets, according to ESPN New York.

He played four minutes on Monday and did not score. There seemed to be quite a bit of tension between Udrih and coach Mike Woodson, so this is hardly a surprising development. The Knicks are not getting much help out of their backcourt and that includes Udrih. This news doesn't really have many fantasy implications and is more about the disarray of the Knicks right now.
Jan 20 - 8:59 PM

Beno Udrih played 13 minutes and hit 2-of-3 shots for six points, five assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's loss.

He was a DNP-CD on Monday but got some run tonight, likely because J.R. Smith never got off the bench for the Knicks tonight.
Jan 14 - 9:37 PM

Beno Udrih (knee) dressed on Monday against the Suns but did not play due to coach's decision.

Raymond Felton is back and playing surprisingly well, so Udrih's playing time figures to be sparse going forward. Plus, Toure Murry has played well off the bench. Udrih can be left on the wire in most leagues and we're taking him off the injury report.
