Knicks President Phil Jackson told point guard Raymond Felton during exit meetings last month that he will be traded during the offseason, a league source told SNY.tv. “Raymond has been told he will be moved this offseason,” the source said. Of course, Jackson’s first priority is to hire a coach after Steve Kerr stunned the Knicks — and the basketball world — on Wednesday by taking the Golden State Warriors job. Felton, who turns 30 next month, is due to make $4.36 million in 2014-15 and he has a player option for $4.54 million in 2015-16. The Felton news should not be that surprising considering his on-court performance and off-court antics this past season. Battling groin and hamstring injuries that caused him to miss 17 games, Felton averaged 9.7 points and 5.6 assists. His career averages are 13.1 points and 6.5 assists.
