Raymond Felton is on his way to his fourth NBA home. The Denver Nuggets have traded the Latta native to Portland as part of a three team trade that also involved the Dallas Mavericks. The main components of the deal were Felton for guard Andre Miller.
Three Team NBA Trade
Portland gets: Raymond Felton, rights to Jordan Hamilton
Denver gets: Andre Miller
Dallas gets: Rudy Fernandez, rights to Petteri Kopenen
Felton began the 2010/11 season by signing a two year deal with the New York Knicks. With career best numbers, Felton became a key piece of the Knicks trade to acquire Carmelo Anthony. Felton played 25 games in Denver, but was coming off the bench as the Nuggets gave the starting point guard spot to Ty Lawson. Felton was vocal in expressing his desire to be a starter, and that will now happen as he takes over the starting spot for Portland.
With Felton getting headlines in 2011 on NBA Draft night, it brings a trip to the WPDE Sports archives when he made bigger headlines six years ago in New York City.
