Raymond Felton is averaging 38.1 minutes a game. That’s a lot of run, particularly on a team that wants to run.
So the Knicks have started looking for a backup PG they can trust, according to Jonathan Abrams at the New York Times.
The Knicks have made inquiries to other teams about acquiring a low-cost backup point guard to preserve the starter Raymond Felton, according to two N.B.A. executives with knowledge of the organization’s discussions. The Knicks are looking at players whose contracts expire at the end of the season in order to keep their salary-cap space for the summer. They are willing to part with Bill Walker, according to the executives.
So we’re talking about a guy making less than $1 million who is in the last year of a deal and can play the point in an up-tempo offense. Not exactly a well stocked lake to go fishing in.
But they need some depth at the point, and flexibility remains the biggest priority. So there you go.
