The Knicks acquired Chandler from Dallas in a three-way trade with Washington prior to the 2011-12 season. Felton, who started at point guard for the Knicks each of the past two years, recently reached a plea agreement in a weapons case and will avoid jail time. He could still be disciplined by the NBA.
Calderon and Dalembert are both veterans, while Larkin is entering his second season in the league.
