Knicks Acquire Raymond Felton, According To Report

Reports surfaced Saturday night that the Knicks were close to acquiring Raymond Felton through a sign-and-trade with the Blazers. Well, apparently whatever was holding the deal back is no longer, as the Knicks acquired Felton, according to a report from Frank Isola.

This is a bit of a reunion deal for the Knicks as they acquire two players with previous stops in New York. Felton played 54 games for the Knicks during the 2010-11 season while Kurt Thomas spent seven seasons in New York (his last was 2004-05). Felton posted the best numbers of his career during his first stint with the Knicks, averaging 17.1 points and 9.0 assists per game. Felton will reportedly sign a three-year $10 million contract.

The acquisition of Felton likely confirms the Knicks will not match the offer sheet Jeremy Lin signed with the Houston Rockets. Instead New York will rely on Jason Kidd and Felton to hand the point guard duties.
