FeltonThe agent for Raymond Felton will meet tonight with Denver Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri to discuss his client's present and future role with the club.
"I really want to clarify with him that Raymond is not going to be a backup," said Tony Dutt, Felton's agent.
With Chauncey Billups going to New York as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade, George Karl has said Ty Lawson will be the Nuggets' starting point guard. That would seem to put Felton, who is having the best season of his six-year career, in a reserve role, which would understandably not sit well with him.
But Dutt said other GMs around the league have told him the Nuggets have resisted trade inquiries for Felton by saying they intend to use him as a starter.
