Pablo Prigioni agreed to contract terms with the New York Knicks before the Jeremy Lin situation played out. Asked about how the point guard position will be effected by the loss of Lin, Prigioni went out of his way to compare his skill level with that of Lin. "Jeremy is more a scorer .... I'm not this kind of player .... I like to play smart."

“I think we have at that position everything, Prigioni said Saturday in an interview at a remote high school in East London. “Raymond can score more. Jason and [I] can run the team. I feel we have many options at that position. Fans will be happy and enjoy our game.’
“Jeremy is more a scorer. He likes to shoot more. I saw him play 10 games. I’m not this kind of player. I like the team to play good, pass the ball, find open shots. I like to play smart — if someone’s hot, pass the ball to him.’’
