The Knicks and Blazers are close to a deal to send Raymond Felton back to New York, according to a source.

Felton's acquisition could have an effect on whether the Knicks will match Jeremy Lin's offer sheet with the Rockets.

But the Knicks could conceivably have a guard rotation of Felton, Lin, Jason Kidd and J.R. Smith until Iman Shumpert returns from injury.
