    Default Raymond Felton possibly on the trade block?

    I've said for years that Raymond Felton has the ability to be a great PG in the right system and he proved that right in NY last year. Granted, that was the PG friendly system that D'Antoni run, but still. The guy is a great defender, can run an offense, and is clutch. The best part is, it looks like he is on the outs in Portland.

    The Pacers need a PG who can be a leader and Felton has proven that he can be that guy on many occasions. He brings everything that we need as a team from the PG spot.

    I do not think that he is the missing piece for this team, but I think he is a HUGE step in the right direction. I would love to see if there is a way we can get him with a package around Collison. If the Blazers are that unhappy with him, it might be something they'd go for. They get younger and save money.

    Just something else to talk about...

    I scout players a lot, I've been scouting Felton since his Freshman year at UNC. I followed him in Charlotte and on the Knicks. I haven't had a chance to see him as much this year as I would have liked, but I can promise you, he would be huge for us.

    He reminds me a lot of Chauncy Billups. Great defender, leader, and is clutch. Billups wasn't a huge player until he landed on the Pistons in the perfect system for him. Felton was having a breakout year with the Knicks until they traded him for Melo.

    I'm not saying Felton will fit here like Billups did in Detroit, however, I feel like he will bring a lot to this team that Darren Collison can't/hasn't.

    I'd be willing to bet that Jamaal Tinsley is in better shape than Felton right now.

    Good post.

    I love the idea. I'm a little biased as I have a warm spot in my heart for Felton. I watched him live in St. Louis as he hit a shot at the buzzer to win the NCAA Championship in front of 50,000 people.

    I'd be more apt to say yes if he hadn't been so terrible this season. Reading he may lose the starting gig to Jamaal Crawford...at least temporarily.

    Definitely more of a purist's PG than DC, which I think would help. On the other hand the guy's always been a poor FG% shooter and has been challenged to stay in shape.

    I'd at least investigate it based on the improvement in traditional PG characteristics and defense.

    If he's cheap (DC & Cap Space) it would be a great move. The fewer players we have in the starting five with obvious exploitable defensive weaknesses, the better we'll be as a team.

    Right now the Pacers are too easy to attack because DC, Hibbert, and West are so easy to pick apart. Having a PG who was willing/able to fight through screens on the PnR would be a huge help to Roy and West.

    The Blazers are obviously not happy with his play, but where have you seen he may be on the trading block? I haven't seen that reported anywhere.

    This would be a great addition to our team. If we could get him for cheap I'd pull that trigger every time.

    I tend to agree with this line of thinking. Felton is having a miserable year. I'm all about upgrading the point guard position, but I want it to be a clear, significant upgrade. I don't think Felton fits the bill.

    IMO Felton is a better option than DC but considering Felton's roots, he is a huge disappointment. He was a top 5 pick in the same Draft class as CP3 and D Will. You would at least expect him to be a little more successful in the league than he has been. He was in Charlotte though so I gues he gets the benefit of the doubt.

    He did look a lil fat on the court against the Clips too. Hey what do I know? DC and cap space and it's a deal.

    I sure don't want Felton!!!

    Maybe they would like Collison and a 1st for Batum and Pacers find a different or 3rd team to get us a real upgrade.

    I wouldn't be completely opposed to that, but it isn't going to happen. Portland has been experimenting with Batum at the 2, and he has been playing very effectively. I believe they will eventually move him for good; he will be the new Brandon Roy, so to speak. He has become one of the rare NBA cases, IMO, where he is untouchable.

    Lakers were interested and trying to trade, as it seems many sources have suggested. The Cavs themselves have shown no indications of wanting to actually trade him from what I have seen. I guess none of us no what goes on behind closed executive doors. Sessions would be a shot of life to our point if he were indeed available.

    Actually, I read an article while back that said they didn't know what they where going to do with Batum and Wallace and their future with Portland is unclear. Said they would have to evaluate it in the off season. Also, Batum has been starting at SF with Wallace starting at PF. I have not seen Batam at the 2 at all. They rotate Mathews and Crawford at the 2.

    Yeah, you are right that he primarily plays SF. It was the game Thursday night I believe. I'm not sure if an injury had occurred besides LA, but Batum was playing the 2 and Wesley (I think) had been moved to the 3. Batum had a big game at the 2, and they were talking about how this new development could be the answer they didn't know was there. Before I heard and saw that, I was of the same opinion as you that Batum could probably be had.

    I thanked this post for the last line of self-deprecation.

    Regarding the first part, who really cares where he was drafted?

    Thanks for the thanks. As to you question, certainly Felton cared wher he was drafted and the reason why I bring that up is because draft position symbolizes a players pedigree. Had he been drafted outside of the lottery in that draft, I amongst many others would not look at him as a disappointment.

    He went to a bigger powerhouse than both Williams and Paul, was drafted in the top 5 w/Williams and Paul but he couldn't hold a candle to the skills and successes of Williams or Paul.

    Raymond is shooting .360, so he seems like he'd fit in just fine on the Pacers.
