Raymond Felton

  1. With Lin out, Felton told he will be Knicks starting point

    Jul 17, 2012, 9:45 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Raymond Felton

    This is the thing that should make Knicks fans nervous about Jeremy Lin being allowed to walk off to the Rockets — the two point guards left on the Knicks roster were not really good last year. Felton was out of shape, turned the ball over nearly on nearly 20 percent of the possessions he…

  2. Knicks to decline to match Jeremy Lin offer. He’s a Rocket.

    Jul 17, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    Linsanity, welcome back to Houston. As was expected in recent days, the New York Knicks have decided not to match the Rockets three-year, $25 million offer to Jeremy Lin, so he will be a Rocket, reports Howard Beck at the New York Times. While nothing is final until midnight eastern, the only way this changes…

  3. Winderman: Lin’s offer sheet not problem, Knicks entire payroll is

    Jul 16, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    This is where many get the NBA luxury tax wrong: The third year on the offer sheet extended by the Rockets to Jeremy Lin will not cost the Knicks $43 million when factoring in the luxury tax, as some have extrapolated. It will cost the Knicks the $15 million on the third year of that…

  4. Knicks “probably” will not match Jeremy Lin offer

    Jul 16, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Like seemingly all things in this latest Jeremy Lin odyssey, nothing is complete until the deadline is past. Up until then nothing should surprise us. But it looks more and more like Lin will be a Rocket next year. Multiple outlets are reporting the Knicks are leaning toward (or some say flat out) not matching…

  5. J.R. Smith suggests Lin contract would not go over well in Knicks locker room

    Jul 15, 2012, 8:18 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

    There’s a real question now whether the Knicks will match the Jeremy Lin offer sheet from Houston, a three-year, $25 million offer. They have until Tuesday to decide. On one hand there is the fact Lin is not worth that much, he’s really not worth the $14.2 million he makes the third year of the…

  6. Knicks do not match offer, Landry Fields is a Raptor

    Jul 15, 2012, 1:58 AM EDT

    Landry Fields

    The Toronto Raptors have a new starting swingman. Well, at least until Terrence Ross takes his job away. The Knicks have chosen not to match the three-year, $18.7 million offer sheet Landry Fields signed with Toronto, reports Alan Hahn of the MSG Network. Which means Fields will be Raptor next season. It was speculated the…

  7. Knicks sign-and-trade for Raymond Felton, is Jeremy Lin on the way out?

    Jul 14, 2012, 11:53 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Things went from “easy and predictable” to completely insane Saturday night in Gotham. It had been a few days since things with the Knicks had seemed berserk, so of course, all that detonated as news broke that the Knicks’ point guard situation could be altered dramatically in a matter of hours. Here’s a rundown of…

  8. Report: Kidd jilts Mavericks at altar, agrees to deal with Knicks

    Jul 5, 2012, 5:15 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd

    Mark Cuban’s “tear it down to build it back up” plan has worked out about as well as Napoleon invading Russia so far. No Deron Williams. No Steve Nash. No Dwight Howard (yet, at least). Jason Terry leaves for Boston. And now Jason Kidd, who the Mavs said they were near a deal with, has jilted…

  9. With Nash out of picture, Knicks trying to bring back Felton

    Jul 5, 2012, 11:38 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The Knicks lost out on their target — they thought they were the front-runners for Steve Nash, but he chose being close to his family over his second home in New York. So now the Knicks are looking at bringing back Raymond Felton, tweets Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. Knicks have emerged…

  10. Nets, Suns, Blazers and Knicks on Raymond Felton’s radar

    Jun 22, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Free agent point guard Raymond Felton wants to play in a system that works for him next year. Of course, what he really wants to do is get the largest paycheck possible. But after that it’s about fit — he wants to be in an up-tempo offense again, Felton told SCNow.com (which is the combined…

  11. Sessions opts out, becomes free agent; Lakers need a PG again

    Jun 19, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    That turned out to be the definition of a rental… Lakers point guard Ramon Sessions — who the team picked up at the trade deadline, sending their first-round pick to Cleveland — has opted out of his deal and will become a free agent, reports Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times. He was to…

  12. Report: Golden State thinking small forward and Jason Kidd

    Jun 6, 2012, 1:28 PM EDT

    Mavericks guard Kidd watches from the bench against the Spurs  during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    One half of the report out of the San Francisco Chronicle makes a lot of sense — Golden State needs an upgrade at the three spot and they have a lot of assets heading into the draft to make a move. But the second half of this makes no sense to me. The San Francisco…

  13. It does not sound like Andre Miller will return to the Nuggets

    May 13, 2012, 4:03 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Andre Miller was traded on draft night last year to Denver, and from the start it was an odd fit. Miller had signed with Portland as a free agent and wanted to be considered a top tier player. He had struggled with Nate McMillan and despite his chemistry with LaMarcus Aldridge, was moved for what…

  14. Paul Silas out as Bobcats coach. Is that really a surprise?

    Apr 30, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Paul Silas

    After leading a Bobcats team to the worst winning percentage in NBA history, the Charlotte Bobcats announced they are not bringing back coach Paul Silas, team president Rod Higgens said. Yes, real shocker there. Charlotte went 7-59 under Silas last season, and while he certainly deserves some blame the fact is that  owner Michael Jordan…

  15. Bobcats lose 23rd straight, fall to Knicks to set record for futility

    Apr 26, 2012, 11:43 PM EDT

    Knicks Bobcats Basketball

    The Charlotte Bobcats are the worst team in NBA history. Charlotte fell to the Knicks by 20 points, 104-84, on a night when the Knicks basically gave their best players a night off. On a night the Bobcats should have played with desperation, they were passive and just missed good looks. It was their 23rd…

  16. Who gets the most “hockey assists” in the NBA?

    Apr 11, 2012, 4:59 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Paul Pierce

    In the NBA, the guy who makes the pass to set up a shooter gets an assist. But often you will see a point guard drive and draw the defense, kick out to a guy at the arc, who will then see the defense rotate and make a pass to a second open shooter who…

  17. Video: Aldridge drains overtime game winner for Blazers

    Apr 7, 2012, 2:13 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    It should never have come to this: The Mavericks had a foul to give at the end of overtime and for reasons nobody understands Jason Terry fouled Raymond Felton with 3.7 seconds left 40 feet from the basket as Felton was losing control of the ball and wasn’t a threat to score. It was a…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Mayo sticks dagger in Thunder

    Apr 3, 2012, 2:58 AM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    What you missed while watching Kentucky win the national title they seemed destined to win…. Memphis 94, Oklahoma City 88: Apparently the Thunder are not comfortable on top of my (and everybody’s) power rankings. This was always a dangerous letdown game for the Thunder — they beat the Heat, Lakers and Bulls in the eight…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Rockets playoff hopes take punch to gut

    Apr 2, 2012, 2:39 AM EDT

    Courtney Lee, Paul George

    What you missed while reading the book “Cooking with Poo”…. Thunder 92, Bulls 78: The Oklahoma City Thunder have rolled over everybody lately (that’s going to be good for them in the power rankings Monday) and their athleticism overwhelmed the Chicago in our game of the day. Celtics 91, Heat 72: Does Boston have one…

  20. While interim guy plans draft strategy, Blazers reopen GM search

    Mar 28, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    Image (1) blazers_logo-thumb-250x275-12376.png for post 2181

    What Portland did at the trade deadline was start to wipe the slate clean… or mostly clean. There are guys you want to keep on the roster — LeMarcus Aldridge, to be obvious — and guys that still need to be moved (Raymond Felton). But Portland now has a lot of picks and some cap…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Are the Hawks and Jazz still playing?

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:37 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams

    What you missed while welcoming Don Draper back into your life… Thunder 103, Heat 87: Kevin Durant outdueled LeBron James (making a nice MVP case), but the bigger concern for Miami should be that Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka combined to drop 35 on them. Matt Moore has a lot more as this was our…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: Suns are rising, Spurs climb too.

    Mar 19, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    John Lucas III, Carlos Boozer

    Trade deadline moves aren’t changing the top of the rankings much, but we will see Portland and some other teams fall in the coming weeks. And we don’t know what the Nets are thinking either, so don’t ask. 1. Bulls (37-10, last week ranked number 1). They beat the Heat without Derrick Rose in the…

  23. Weekend Observations: 25 notes about the trade deadline

    Mar 18, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We’re thee days past the trade deadline. Some players have already landed and played a game with their new teams, some haven’t even arrived in their new destinations (does Hasheem Thabeet really have that busy of a calendar?). But we’re starting to recover from the shock of a still-nuts-if-quieter-than-last-year deadline that saw two coaches let go…

  24. Friday And-1 links: Did Wade mock Dwight Howard’s loyalty?

    Mar 16, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Was Dwyane Wade mocking Dwight Howard’s loyalty to the Magic? Kind of looks that way to me. Rudy Gay has cleared the league concussion protocols…

  25. Recapping a crazy day in Portland, where the Blazers began to clean house

    Mar 15, 2012, 8:44 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    This year’s Portland Trail Blazers campaign, to this point, has gone as badly as possible. Just before the NBA’s trade deadline passed at 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, the team began the process of doing something about it. A flurry of activity went down in Portland today, and much of it set the team up…
