The Knicks have officially traded for Raymond Felton and Kurt Thomas.

The deal is now done. To reiterate, the Knicks will receive:

Raymond Felton

Kurt Thomas

The imminent and ever-growing threat that Jeremy Lin's offer sheet will not be matched

In exchange for:

Dan Gadzuric

Jared Jeffries

A future second-rounder (2016, was it?)

The rights to Georgios Printezis

The rights to 2012 draft pick Kostas Papanikolaou

As I explained here, I think that's too much to give up for Raymond Felton and Kurt Thomas (both of whom I'm delighted to have back), but the trade won't bother me one bit (okay, maybe like half a bit) if New York matches Lin's offer sheet. They have until tomorrow night to do that, but I'm about to go on a long car trip soon, which almost guarantees that their decision will come within the next few hours. Sources are still telling reporters that New York's matching is "highly doubtful", but I hold out hope to the contrary. Aaron Brooks just got signed by the Kings, so matching and snaggling what might be the last decent point guard on the market could be New York's final middle finger to the Rockets. Right? No? Oh well.

In the meantime, keep right on commenting here and please try to be kind to one another. It'll be okay no matter what. I promise. Well, I can't promise that, but I definitely hope it.
