The one-year deal is worth the league minimum.
Felton made a name for himself at North Carolina, playing for the Tar Heels from 2002-05. During his junior season, Felton helped legendary coach Roy Williams capture his first title with a National Championship victory over Illinois. In the 2005 Final Four, he averaged 16.5 points and 7.0 assists.
In 101 games at North Carolina, he posted 12.5 points, 6.9 assists and 1.7 3-pointers per contest. After his junior season, the guard entered the NBA draft and heard his name called fifth overall by the Charlotte Bobcats.
Felton played five seasons in Charlotte, accumulating 13.3 points and 6.4 assists per game. His best statistical year, though, came when he split the 2010-11 season between the New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets. He averaged 15.5 points and 8.3 assists that year.
The 33-year-old had two different stints with the Knicks, rejoining New York in 2012. In addition to the Bobcats, Knicks and Nuggets, he’s also played for the Trail Blazers, Mavericks and Clippers.
Last season with Los Angeles, he averaged 6.7 points and 5.7 assists per game. Felton played in 80 games, starting 11 of them.
