Knicks coach supports Raymond Felton

New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson said on Wednesday that he stood behind point guard Raymond Felton, who was arrested on Tuesday on gun possession charges, and that Felton would remain in the Knicks’ lineup.

“Bottom line is, Ray is part of our team,” Woodson told reporters after Wednesday’s practice, in which Felton participated.

“As his coach I’m going to support him and make sure he’s doing everything the right way from here on out, and try to get him to concentrate on basketball.”

Felton, 29, was charged after his wife’s divorce attorney took a weapon that was allegedly the player’s and was not registered in New York City to a local police station, authorities said.
