I understand he is only 23 years old but I don't think he's shown much to assert himself as someone who could be an efficient player in this league.
I would totally pull the trigger on a Felton and Tim Hardaway Jr. for Lowry deal. THJ has shown more already in this rookie season than Shump in the past 3 years IMO.
But of course, many Knick fans would be against this trade and think they can get Lowry straight up for Felton.. but Masai would never eat up his salary without getting a valuable asset in return.
Agree with your analysis on the players.
Reports said Masai wanted two of Shumpert, Hardaway Jr, and a 2016 first round pick just for taking in Felton and giving up Lowry. Its not like he wants to give Lowry away for nothing. The price is high!
