PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — During the summer of 2010, the Portland Trail Blazers took a long look at free agent point guard Raymond Felton before deciding he didn’t fit on the roster financially.
A year later, Felton has joined the Blazers after a draft-day trade with Denver.
Felton, who was introduced Monday during a news conference in Portland, said he’s looking to make the Blazers his team for years to come.
The 6-foot-1 Felton has played for three teams during his six-year NBA tenure, including five with Charlotte. He signed last summer with New York before being dealt to the Nuggets in the Carmelo Anthony trade.
