He may find that the fall and winter go a little more slowly. Not only is there the grind of his first NBA season, but he will be separated from his 1-year-old daughter Zayah, who lives in Idaho with her mother. Felix said he and his daughter Face Time every day. "It's definitely hard, but it's motivation for me,'' said Felix, who has a bachelor's degree in communications and a master's degree in liberal arts and sciences from ASU. "My daughter's going to know that all I'm doing is for her. Dad's got to go to work. This is something I've got to do now. This is my job.'' Cleveland Plain Dealer
Carrick Felix impressed in summer camp to the point that the team paid him slightly more than minimum for a second-round pick. He receives $510,000 this season, as opposed to $490,000. His second-year salary is $816,000. Both are guaranteed. Making the contract interesting is the next two seasons. Felix will receive $947,000 in 2015-16 and $1 million in 2016-17. Both are club options. So if Felix becomes a good player, he'll be under contract for four years. Cleveland Plain Dealer
