Knicks get Felton back on a sign-and-trade! ‘Linsanity’ NY over?!
@SportsBata ..nuff said
#KnicksPickUpFelton The NY Knicks picked up PG Raymond Felton from the Portland Trailblazers in exchange for recently acquired second-round pick (#48) in the 2012 NBA Draft, Kostas Papanikolaou, as well as Georgios Prentezis, picked up by the Knicks on the Tyson Chandler sign-and-trade from the Mavs, and C Jared Jeffries! #Felton averaged over 17 ppg and 9 apg in 54 games with Knicks in 2010, and was part of the Feb 2011 blockbuster trade to the Nuggets for #Melo!
”At this point there’s a lot going on. I stay away from that part right now. I would love to see him back, but I think he has to do what’s best for him right now.”
”It’s not up to me,” Anthony said with a laugh. ”It’s up to the organization to say they want to match that ridiculous contract that’s out there.” – foxsports
#LinsanityNYEraOver?! The ‘Linsanity’ era in NY may be over?! The fact that the Knicks signed #Kidd less than a week ago, and picked up #Felton on the sign-and-trade on Saturday is a strong indicator that #Linsanity will not be back. The Knicks were intending to match the Rockets offer of $25 Million over three years for JLin, but now are not feeling the ramifications of the deal! The Knicks would have to pay almost $15 Million for the third year of the deal, and would put the Knicks way over the luxury tax! Many people (including #Melo) believe “the contract offer was ridiculous”!
The newly acquired NY Knick Jason Kidd caught a DWI in the Hamptons after he went soaring into a tree over the weekend!
During the #Yankees game (#Yankee stadium) on Sunday, Spike Lee got a free bat that cruised in the nearby seats!
