Raymond Felton is motivated and in shape.
That’s what North Carolina coach Roy Williams told me Saturday morning at the Peach Jam where he is scouting some of the top high school prospects in the nation.
“He took less money to go to New York, he could’ve gotten more money somewhere else,” Williams said. “He wants to be in New York. He is motivated. The people in New York should remember how good he was for half a year because he played his buns off. He played his buns off.”
Williams said Felton was at North Carolina recently and was in good shape.
“Raymond Felton will be in shape,” Williams said. “He’ll be fired up. He is fired up right now. He looks great.”
He added: “I asked him six weeks ago, ‘If a team says you need to lose 15 pounds, what are you going to tell them?’ He says, ‘I’ve already lost 10 and I’ll lose 10 more.’ He’s going to be motivated.”
