With nobody offering enough, Blazers may keep Felton

Ray Felton

Point guard Raymond Felton is not meshing with the slow-it-down, grind-it-out style of Nate McMillan’s Portland Trail Blazers. That’s why he was on the trade block.

But the Blazers aren’t just giving him away, either.

Unless the landscape changes or the offers get better in the next couple days, Felton may just stay a Blazer, reports Chris Haynes at

According to a source, the Portland Trail Blazers have gauged the interest of Raymond Felton to all 29 NBA teams and have found minimum interest.

What the Blazers reportedly wanted is a first round pick at least for Felton, ideally more. But because Felton is a free agent at the end of the season, teams are going to balk at the steep price for a rental.

Still, as the deadline gets closer a team desperate for point guard help (cough*Lakers*cough) might up their offer. Maybe.

Or Felton could just tough it out in Portland through the end of the season. Which seems the most likely outcome.

    It’s funny how market value works. The Blazers are idiots for thinking they could just say they wanted 1st rounders for Felton and Crawford

    Unless the lakers want to give up goudelock and a draft pick, there not gettin felton…blazers dont want blake back, he sucks, they shipped him to the clippers because they didnt want him years ago. Besides felton is average, a better solution would be trying to trade for nash, sessions or dj augustin

      1st for Sessions makes a lot more sense for Lakers in my opinion. Felton can be good, but dont see him meshing with Lakers. he needs ball in his hands, and isnt a knock down open shooter.

      I would like Felton on Orlando, think he would work really well with that team and give the a spark like skiptomylou did back in the day.
