Report: Pistons among teams interested in Knicks' Pablo Prigioni

Sunday January 25th, 2015

The Detroit Pistons are among the teams interested in New York Knicks point guard Pablo Prigioni and could revisit a trade after losing Brandon Jennings, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

Jennings will reportedly miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn left Achilles Saturday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. The five-year veteran had been playing well since the team waived Josh Smith in late December, averaging 20.9 points and 7.2 assists over 13 games this month.

Detroit could seek additional help at point guard for D.J. Augustin by trading for Prigioni, who is averaging 4.8 points and 2.5 assists while playing 18.8 minutes per game in New York. Prigioni, 37, isn't likely to be in the Knicks' long-term plans under Phil Jackson.

The Pistons entered Sunday's game vs. the Toronto Raptors at 17-27, 10th in the Eastern Conference. Detroit will host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday before traveling to Philadelphia to play the 76ers on Wednesday.

The Knicks own the conference's worst record at 8-37.
