Raymond Felton will have the extremely tough task of replacing fan favorite Jeremy Lin as the Knicks' starting point guard. 

Everyone, including Lin, believed the New York Knicks would not let him leave the team under any circumstances this offseason.

It seems that three years for $25 million was equivalent to that one billion however, since that’s all it took for the Knicks to decide Lin was too expensive for their liking and they needed to replace him immediately.

He agreed to a three-year, $10 million deal and the Knicks completed a sign-and-trade with the Portland Trail Blazers for his services.
