EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Brooklyn Nets All-Star Deron Williams says Raymond Felton is a better playmaker than the point guard he replaced in New York, Jeremy Lin.
Lin outplayed Williams last Feb. 4 in a stunning performance off the bench, starting a phenomenon that became known as Linsanity. But the Knicks opted not to match the $25.1 million deal Lin signed with Houston, having already completed a sign-and-trade deal with Portland to reacquire Felton.
Felton played well in a previous stint with the Knicks, and Williams says Saturday he ``would say Raymond Felton is a better point guard than Jeremy Lin, in my opinion.''
The Nets host the Knicks on Thursday in their first game at the new Barclays Center.
