   2017 NBA Manifesto

Raymond Felton
PG, 6’1, 205lbs, 33 years old, 12 years of experience

Continuing his evolution into reasonably reliable, defensively committed third stringer continues, and he was fairly reliable in a season that lacked for it. But as he ages, his effectiveness is tailing off, and he was never consistent offensively anyway. Therefore, while he is a good candidate for the very role he just fulfilled, he is not suitable for a bigger one than that. Could be worth bringing back for the minimum depending on how the rest of the roster plays out.

Player Plan: Expiring minimum salary and would be worthy of another one. No Bird rights will make it difficult to re-sign him for more than that, but nor should it be necessary.

Further to this, the new and considerably not improved version of Amar'e Stoudemire is nevertheless having some effect in his offensive bench role. Over the five games, Stoudemire has totalled 51 points and 33 rebounds - more Carl Landry than Karl Malone at this point, Amar'e is nevertheless providing size, offense and bench firepower from a team starved of all three. And further to that, the man who started the season as the team's fourth point guard (out of five), Toure Murry, has provided a welcome defensive influence. Barely playing to begin the season, Murry has seen more time recently in the absence of Pablo Prigioni, and used his combination of size, speed and good hands to become a significant defensive presence at the point guard position. Whilst he himself is limited offensively, Murry nevertheless brings energy, speed, a full-court game and intensity to a point guard spot normally manned by the antithesis of that, Raymond Felton. Prigioni brought the defense, but not the dynamicism, and with an extended run, Murry could potentially oust both him and Beno Udrih in the point guard rotation.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
