Felton’s suspension without pay was announced Thursday, two weeks after he took a plea deal that involved admitting a felony but avoiding jail time.
Felton pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. He admitted he knowingly had a large-capacity ammunition magazine and a pistol without a license.
With the biggest names off the board, it’s time to break down the five teams having the best offseason thus far in the NBA.
Carmelo Anthony is expected to announce his intentions soon. But where he’ll end up is still anyone’s guess at this point.
Let’s break down Jason Kidd’s most idiotic moments after he left Brooklyn for Milwaukee.
Anthony has been linked to Mark Cuban’s squad — the Bulls, Lakers, Rockets and Heat have also been rumored to covet the dynamic scorer — and Chandler plans to help recruit the 2013 NBA scoring champion to Big D.
Meanwhile, it appears teams are salivating at the prospect of teaming up Anthony and his four-time MVP friend, free-agent-to-be LeBron James.
The Dallas Mavericks owner called Donald Sterling’s purported comments about minorities “abhorrent” while saying he didn’t think the NBA could force him out as owner of the Clippers.
That’s right. Jason Kidd, on his 41st birthday, outwitted the Dallas’ Rick Carlisle, a championship coach, with the game on the line.
Joe Johnson scored 22 points, including the tying layup in regulation and the go-ahead 3-pointer in overtime to lead the Brooklyn Nets past the Mavericks 107-104 Sunday night in Jason Kidd’s return to Dallas as a coach.
Dirk Nowitzki’s 19-foot jumper bounced up and then fell in as time expired, giving the Dallas Mavericks a 110-108 victory over the New York Knicks on Monday night.
Smith was caught untying Dallas forward Shawn Marion’s sneaker Sunday. The NBA said that he received a warning from the league Tuesday and then “attempted to repeat the action” against Detroit.
The NBA could slap Smith with some form of punishment for untying Shawn Marion’s shoe during a Mavericks free-throw attempt on Sunday, according to the New York Post.
Smith’s hijinks occurred during a free-throw attempt by Dirk Nowitski, when he was subbed in with 2:08 left in the first half and promptly bent over to yank on the laces of Shawn Marion.
