Knicks point guard Raymond Felton is being divorced by his wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton, after less than 19 months of marriage, as rumors fly that the Knicks are also planning to trade him. Beautiful 26-year-old law student Ariane, who married 29-year-old Felton in 2012, filed for divorce Tuesday in Manhattan, Page Six can exclusively reveal. A second source confirmed Felton has personally been served with divorce papers, although the grounds for divorce were not clear Tuesday night. New York Post

Felton will be running the show on Tuesday when the Knicks begin the post-All Star break part of the season against Memphis, with the defending Atlantic Division champs having only 30 games to play their way into the postseason. “There’s no question that the Knicks want to upgrade that position," one Eastern Conference executive said on Monday night. “That’s their top goal."

The Knicks traded their first-round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft to the Nuggets in the Carmelo Anthony deal. Ironically, DraftExpress.com currently has the Nuggets selecting Syracuse freshman point guard Tyler Ennis at No. 9 with that pick. Syracuse is currently 22-0 and No. 1 in the nation. “[Ennis] is better than Felton,” one NBA scout said. The Knicks Blog

Whatever the problem is, it doesn't seem to be confidence. In last week's game against Brooklyn, Shumpert took six of the Knicks' first 11 shots and finished the game with five points. "If field-goal attempts are a measure of confidence, he's not lacking," said ESPN analyst Doris Burke, after Shumpert misfired on a heavily contested three-pointer with eight seconds left on the shot clock in that game. The more likely culprit is the lack of synergy between point guard Raymond Felton and Shumpert, who usually serves as Felton's fifth and final offensive option within the starting five. In 697 minutes together this season, Felton has assisted Shumpert just 10 times, according to NBA.com. Only Indiana point guard George Hill and shooting guard Lance Stephenson have connected less.

The Knicks are expecting Pablo Prigioni (broken toe) to return after missing 16 games, and Woodson indicated the veteran point guard might start alongside Raymond Felton in the backcourt. A return to that smaller alignment likely would push Andrea Bargnani to the bench, with Anthony manning the power forward spot. New York Daily News
