    Default Ray Felton to a multi year contract in the works

    this is a good thing and a bad thing.. We aren't gunna have much room for a superstar next year and that means cp3 parker and deron aren't playing in ny unless it's a trade... depends on how much we pay him
    hopefully it's not a bloated deal

    I think he can be really successful in D'Antoni's system. At least, more successful than in Larry Brown's half-court

    I respect Felton, he's going to be a pretty good passing guy for Amare, and maybe can run the Pick-and-Roll with him and Gallo, as long as he doesn't chuck up a bajillion 3s, like DuHound did, then I will be happy

    Just hope we don't overpay him.

    Just watched highlights. Now this is just highlights. But what I see is someone fast as hell. Freakish Fast. Can dish the ball quick in transition. Has a crossover that looks effective. Can't judge to much off videos though.

    im actually happy about this signing felton is young he's 25 i think and isnt even in the prime of his career yet. D'Ant can turn him into a solid starting PG he has career averages of 13.5 and 6.4 ( points assists ).

    under D'antoni he could possibly average 16-17 and 8 considering all point guards who played under D'Ant saw increases in their numbers, so these numbers of Felton are possible.

    our Knicks are back.....and i still think were not done yet

    This is almost a no-brainer, IMO. He was pretty easily the best PG available in this year's free-agent class and his strength is his speed in leading the break . . . he is PERFECT for D'Antoni's system.

    I'm happy with the signing. The Knicks needed a point guard, and Felton is a good point guard. The Knicks definitely have a chance to make the playoffs next year, but it's going to be tough. D'Antoni likes to play favorites with his starting lineups, so I'm not assuming that Felton, Turiaf, or Randolph are going to get much playing time until I see it.

    Unhappy Signing Felton has its good & bad points

    Is our 2011 draft pick protected in anyway?



    <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=6 width="100%"><TBODY><TR><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: 1px inset; BORDER-LEFT: 1px inset; BORDER-TOP: 1px inset; BORDER-RIGHT: 1px inset" class=alt2>
    Felton played in 80 games for Charlotte last season and averaged 12.1 points, 5.6 assists and 3.6 rebounds in helping the team reach the postseason for the first time in its existence.

    The North Carolina product has spent his entire career with the Bobcats and has averaged 13.3 points, 6.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds per contest over 399 games, including 369 starts.
    </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
    I like Felton, his talent is above Duhon but.....
    Douglas may take his starting job before the season is out.

    In my book, Felton has been the poorest PG in his draft class.
    In the 5 years of the Knicks vs Bobcats, PG-Felton has never
    been a threat or showed any amazing skills where Knick fans
    wouldve feared the Bobcats PG position.

    Nate Robinson with only half the playingtime of Felton in 5 years,
    has showed to be more of an offense/defense threat vs oponents
    than Felton has showed as a starter.
    Felton has never reached the potential of talent that was expected
    from the change of college to NBA.

    I have nothing against Felton, but I do believe David Lee wouldve been
    the best player on our roster (Amare included) to improve Felton's PG talents.
    I was looking more at going after the pair of FA Ridnoir & Salmons.

    P.S.
    Watching the Summer Games Mr. Jordan Hill is murdering every oponent
    in the paint.
    The Rockets having young big Patterson/athletic scoring Taylor
    their games show they were not the team to swap draft picks
    with next season.
    Do we have any protection on our swap draft pick???

    1st overall pick protection. But I have a feeling that we'll finish with a better record than the Rockets. We're becoming a solid team in the East who should be able to compete with most of the teams.

    The Rockets are in the West which is still very much rape city with the likes of the Spurs, Nuggets, Lakers, Thunder, Jazz, and Trail Blazers. I still think think the West is deeper top to bottom. With the right players we'll be a solid 45+ win team.

    I really don't see him being that much better than Ridnour or Duhon or Lowry or Livingston or even my man Arroyo.

    Iono, we'll see.

    Let's remember this guy put up decent numbers in the slowest, most lethargic offensive scheme in the NBA. He is a needed upgrade and necessary for Amare's game. He is def best pg FA out there.

    All anyone has to do here is to take a look at Mr. Felton's game logs from his 08-09 season when he got the majority of the PT at PG. Not to mention like TR1 said, this was all under Larry's slow it down, grind it out halfcourt offense.

    So its safe to say, the sky is the limit for this kid under D'Antoni's system.

    Just go back and look at his game logs from past seasons and you can see the kid has major talent.
