Could Ray Felton Return to the Knicks?
(Ray) Felton made sweet music with (Amar’e) Stoudemire on the pick-and-roll in Mike D’Antoni’s Knicks offense in the first half of the 2010-11 season.
Felton loved D’Antoni’s offense, and new coach Mike Woodson has tried to keep some of D’Antoni’s principles.
After a down season with Portland, Felton’s market value has fallen, possibly into the Knicks’ range. Former Knicks president Donnie Walsh never wanted to trade Felton, but was under great pressure from owner James Dolan to make the Carmelo Anthony deal happen late last February.
After Felton was traded, Stoudemire was never the same. Felton, who signed a two-year, $11.8 million deal with the Knicks in the summer of 2010, passing on a longer-term package elsewhere, was bitter about being traded and replaced by Chauncey Billups. It’s unclear if he still holds a grudge.
