Raymond Felton: Knicks PG?
There has been a lot of discussion over who will asume the role of the Knick's point guard in the 2010 to 2011 season.
Here is a good option, he looks very promising:
Raymond Felton, age 25 (a current free agent)
College: North Carolina
Former teams: Charlotte Bobcats
Stats: 14.2 ppg, 6.7 assists, 3.8 rbs and 1.5 steals a game in 37 minutes.
Overview: (from draftexpress.com) A lightning quick point guard who is still trying to recapture the individual and team success that he experienced as a collegiate at UNC, and made him a top 5 pick. Won an NCAA championship at UNC as a junior in 2005. His quickness, strength, and explosiveness are ideal even by NBA standards, though his physical stature is only average. Has quickly become a quality NBA point guard, and has the potential to get even better.
Defensive Description: (from draftexpress.com) A great ball hawk, pressuring his man the entire length of the floor and being a general nuisance when his man has the ball. Great lateral quickness. His ability to jump into passing lanes allows him to create some turnovers, though he tends to avoid taking unnecessary risks. A smart defender considering his experience level, and much of his ability can be contributed to his time at North Carolina. Shows a willingness to go after long rebounds, but would just as soon get ready to receive an outlet pass. Size will always be a hindrance in this area, though, as opposing guards can easily see the floor and get shots off against him.
