On Friday, a report surfaced that the New York Knicks want to trade oft-injured point guard Raymond Felton. Felton has had a very disappointing second stint with the Knicks and it culminated with a terrible 2013-2014 season that saw him averaged just 9.7 points, 5.6 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game.
According to Ian Begley of ESPN New York, the Knicks are looking toward Steve Blake in free agency to replace him.

Blake was dealt from the Lakers to the Golden State Warriors just before the trade deadline last season. Blake has been a steady backup point guard (and occasional starter) and would like represent an upgrade from anything the Knicks trotted out last season.
Blake averaged 6.9 points, 5.6 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game last year. He is a career 38.8% shooter from beyond the arc.
