Neither the Knicks nor the NBA will discipline Raymond Felton until the legal process plays out.
“We have reached out to Raymond to make sure all his rights are being protected,” union director Ron Klempner said (New York Post). “Charges are charges. Any discipline made based on his arrest would be inappropriate and challenged aggressively. Let the process run its course.”
In Article 6, Section 115 of the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, it reads that teams should not discipline a player simply on an arrest.
The league is “monitoring the situation,” NBA spokesman Tim Frank told SNY’s The Knicks Blog.
Felton was charged with three counts of felony possession of a firearm early Tuesday morning.
His arraignment is expected to occur on Tuesday afternoon.
