The Washington Wizards are on the lookout for a back-up point guard and they've got the New York Knicks star Beno Udrih in their sights.

ESPN reporter Mark Stein claims it's "reasonably definite" that the Wizards will make a move before the trade deadline to bring in a back-up to John Wall.

Knicks reserve Udrih is reportedly towards the top of their shortlist, although they're also considering Denver Nuggets' experienced ace, Andre Miller.

As far as Miller goes though, the Wizards - who don't have much cap room - can't find a deal to make it work at present.

31-year-old point guard Udrih joined the Knicks last year and has been quietly effective in an otherwise dysfunctional offensive unit.

Something of a basketball journeyman, Udrih has played in Russia, Israel, Slovenia, Slovakia and Italy.

He was then drafted late in the first round by the San Antonio Spurs in 2004, and played three years with the franchise.

Four years with the Sacramento Kings was followed by two with the Milwaukee Bucks and a brief stint with the Orlando Magic last year before he landed in New York.
