    Default Felton wants back in The Garden.

    Pretty much his agent stating he would love to come back here and had no hard feelings about the Melo trade. Didn't say he wouldn't accept one of our exceptions, just that he would prefer for the Knicks to work out a S & T with the Blazers for a higher salary.

    And hey if we can dump JJ, TD & cash why not do it.

    I also read elsewhere that his weight has ballooned to 225-235 lbs, can't find the link though.

    Thoughts?

    As in the season just past or the Melo-trade season? He wasn't great last year but was not as bad as people made him out to be. Put up sub par numbers but the whole Blazers organisation collapsed, wasn't just him.

    I think for the BAE or a S&T with Blazers it may be worth it. The things that concerned me the most is that he played so well under D'Antoni's play, not Woodson's. No doubt Woodson would demand he got in shape but i'm still torn on this.

    Would probably be solid and quite useful as a backup PG.

    Depends on how much he costs. I can see him getting more than $3M a year, he's not a vet min player, and he's not worth our entire mini-mid-level.

    So I would pass.

    We're getting to that part in FA where we start to realize the truth about our beloved Knicks. We will be used to get up asking price while realizing were in that Miami Heat state of mind.. low spending money left, fill in the gaps cheaply. Problem is the money we have locked up doesn't work. Especially in this system BUT to get back to topic..

    I feel Felton will have something to prove and would be inspired playing with Amare again problem is who knows what Mike Woodson would expect of him.

    I feel he comes over in sign and trade and we follow by signing Rashard Lewis and Marcus Camby.

    Felton can't shoot. Gets abused on defense. Has been terrible in the playoffs. I don't fear his poor play last season, b/c the lockout probably had a lot to do with that. But his play did tail off while he was here w/ NYK.

    Still, he would suffice as the backup PG... but I'm not wasting my MLE on him. That MLE has to be handed to an impact player.

    I'm sure there are ways to find a PG if Felton wants too much cash.

    I'm just not giving him the MLE, which is 3 years and 9 million. I'd rather throw that at a Marcus Camby, or OJ Mayo (unlikely, but I think a better value than Felt.)

    If we get Felton while reserving our mini-MLE, then fine.

    Felton is just like Lamar Odom, if he's not playing somewhere he WANTS to be the production and attitude change.

    I don't mind Felton coming back, despite his garbage season in Portland dude still managed like what 11 and 7.
