According to the Charlotte Observer, the Warriors are interested in trading for Charlotte point guard Ray Felton, whose future with the Bobcats has been clouded by the performance of rookie D.J. Augustin.
The scenario makes sense on several levels, and I am checking with sources to determine the likelihood of a deal that would send Felton to Golden State for a package including either Anthony Randolph or Brandan Wright.
The Bobcats opted not to extend Felton's contract last summer after selecting Augustin ninth overall, and Felton could leave as a restricted free agent if Charlotte opts not to match potentially lucrative offer sheets.
Golden State is known to be high on Wright, whom the Bobcats drafted on the Warriors' behalf to complete a draft-day trade sending Jason Richardson to Charlotte. Felton would be a good fit in the Warriors' backcourt because he would free up Monta Ellis, once he returns from an ankle injury sustained in an offseason moped accident, to be a scorer as the shooting guard. Stay tuned.
