Raymond Felton will avoid jail following felony gun charges

11 Comments

Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested in February on felony gun charges.

He played out the season pending results of the case. Now, they’re in.

Mike Mazzeo of ESPN:

It’s unclear what, if any, further punishment Felton will face from the NBA or his team.

Phil Jackson reportedly told Felton the Knicks would trade him this offseason. Felton avoiding jail time makes him more tradable, but he’s still an overpaid below-average starter on the downside of his career. It will be difficult for New York to move him.
