Raymond Felton has lost 15 pounds since the end of the New York Knicks' season.

Felton played at approximately 212 pounds last season and is encouraged by his new physique.

"I was quick before, but if you take off 15 pounds, you can be that much quicker," Felton said Sunday.

Felton was out of weight and not physically prepared for the season to start after the lockout in 2011 when he joined the Portland Trail Blazers.

Felton is working with trainer Keith Veney.
