David Lee would be a nice addition, but I'll never forgive him for the 0.1er against us...
According to the NYK RealGM board the reporter isn't very reliable. It would shock me if anything like this went down.

I'd love to have David Lee, but not at the price of Felton. For months everyone argued for Rose as the Number 1 pick because it's just too hard to pass on a point guard...that being said, despite Felton's flaws, I think he needs time to flourish (or fail) under Larry Brown so we can see what he's really capable off...you can't just throw away a point guard for the heck of it. I think if we get Lee, it's gotta be for other players
I don't like the trade because we are then left with one pg. There has to be something better out there where we can actually get what we need, pg help not leave us with a rookie and pf help. Okafor has to play center because outside of 8 ft he is terrible. He won't be a pf in the league for that reason. Pf these days can step out and hit jumpers or have some handles. Okafor has neither .
I know david lee is a great rebounder and PF...but i can't part with felton no matter how badly he shoots....he's got my homestate love and he used to play against my school. i love having players that have connections to me play on the team i support. it gives me a bigger reason to root for them because i can relate to them. but i do wish we could figure out how to get an agile post player who can guard the forwards who have range and speed like bosh or jamison...ajinca probaby wont be coming over this year so unless we can sign jamison for cheap..we don't have any answer for that type of player yet still...
Once again, I really don't think there's a chance in hell that we trade Felton. We'd be stupid to do so. We drafted DJ to be our back-up PG which is one of the things we needed most. I know at the 9th pick that you don't want to waste it on a back-up but when a player is there that feels one of your voids then there's no reason to pass on him. Felton really started coming into his own this season when we finally cut McInnis and had Felton as our starting PG. Why trade a up and coming PG in Felts for David Lee?
