Knicks emerge as favorite to sign Raymond Felton

 

With two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash headed to La La Land, the Knicks are shifting their focus to the second tier of free-agent point guards. Frank Isola of the New York Daily News tweeted that the Knicks emerged as the favorite to ink veteran Raymond Felton on Thursday morning. If Felton inks with the Knicks, it would mark his second stint with the team.

Although Jeremy Lin was reportedly offered a backloaded deal that could be worth approximately $30 million over four years by the Rockets, the Knicks are expected to match that contact, meaning Felton and Lin would run the point in 2012-2013 for the Knicks, who suffered a multiple injuries at the position last season.

Next year will be Felton's 9th season in the league. The 28-year-old Felton played 54 games for the Knicks in 2010-2011 before being shipped to Denver in the Carmelo Anthony deal. Last season, while playing for Portland he averaged 11.4 points and 6.5 assists.

So while rappers love goin' goin' -- back back -- to Cali Cali, Felton may be goin' goin' -- back back -- to New York, New York.
