Knicks Frontrunners For Raymond Felton

Having missed out on Steve Nash, the Knicks have turned their focus elsewhere, and have emerged as the frontrunners for ex-Knick Raymond Felton, reports Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. Felton signed in New York two summers ago, but was shipped to Denver in the blockbuster deal that brought Carmelo Anthony to the Big Apple.

Agent Tony Dutt tells Marc Berman of the New York Post that his client "loved" playing in New York, and that there were no hard feeling between the two sides when Felton was included in the package for Anthony.

"I consider [the Knicks] definitely on his high list," Dutt said. "He would love to go back. He loved New York and was playing at an All-Star level."

Felton is coming off a down year for the Blazers, having averaged a career-low 11.4 points per game. However, Dutt is still optimistic about the 28-year-old's potential contract — the agent told Berman that, if Felton chooses the Knicks, he hopes a sign-and-trade can be worked out so that the point guard can earn more than New York's $3.09MM mini mid-level exception. According to Isola, the Knicks may be open to that possibility, since it would allow them to save their MLE for another player.

The Suns also had interest in Felton, but are almost certainly out of the running now that they've agreed to a long-term deal with Goran Dragic. When I examined Felton's free agent stock last month, I suggested that a mid-level type deal with a contender would be the best bit for the former fifth overall pick.

    yeah itll be a good fit. If the Knicks get this done, would like to see them somehow aquire a SG, and a SF/PF. A back up center would be nice too, that way they wouldnt have to play so small every time Chandler didnt play

      I am feeling J.R. Smith, and Camby, don’t know about the backup 3/4 though.

        idk i love JR Smith but the man jacks up way to many shots. Camby would be a great addition. I’m thinking Rashard Lewis, he wont be asking much since his 13 mill salary will be payed by the hornets. Hes not anything special at this point of his career, but would be a descent role player with the Knicks, and most importantly would be a cheap signing

    Poor Knicks fans, such a bad and overrated player.

      if he could provide 10-12 PPG and 5-6 APG as a backup PG that would be great, and hes certainly capable of doing that
