The Dallas Mavericks are not intent on trading point guard Raymond Felton, according to a report. After pleading guilty to two gun charges on Wednesday, Felton will receive a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service but avoids jail time.
“We like him and think he will have a great year,” Cuban told ESPNDallas.com via the Cyber Dust messaging app. “Do quote me on that.”
Felton, 30, averaged a career-low 9.7 points and 5.6 assists in 65 games for the Knicks last season. He missed six contests in December due to a right groin injury.

The Mavericks, who also re-signed Dirk Nowitzki and agreed to terms with small forward Chandler Parsons this offseason, won 49 games and earned the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference before falling to the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs.
