Felton generated 12 points (5-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one block across 18 minutes in the Thunder's 108-92 loss to the Clippers on Friday. The veteran paced the second unit in scoring and provided some much-needed offensive production on a night when Paul George and Dennis Schroder combined to go an atrocious 9-for-42 from the field. Felton's positional versatility figures to provide him a modest but consistent allotment of minutes in the upper teens on average this season, following a 2017-18 campaign when he appeared all 82 games and averaged 6.9 points, 2.5 assists and 1.9 rebounds across 16.6 minutes.
Felton finished with six points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, one rebound, one steal, and one block in 15 minutes during Sunday's 113-94 win over the Hawks. Felton hasn't exactly been efficient through three preseason games, scoring 26 points on 28 field-goal attempts. However, he has dished out 10 assists to just four turnovers. Felton will fill in as the backup point guard until Russell Westbrook (knee) returns, at which point the former Tar Heel will fall to third on the depth chart behind Dennis Schroder.
Felton agreed Tuesday to re-sign with the Thunder on a one-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The reliable point guard played more than 80 games for the third straight year, however the 2017-18 campaign was his first in Oklahoma City. Felton ended the season with averages of 6.9 points, 2.5 assists, 1.9 rebounds and 1.0 three-pointer across 16.6 minutes, while shooting 35.2 percent from three-point land. His solid bench production earns him a one-year extension with the Thunder, though with Russell Westbrook back, Felton will be stuck with backup duties and should have nearly an identical role to last season. As a result, Felton should remain well off the fantasy radar in the bulk of leagues.
Felton produced 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt), two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block across 21 minutes during Oklahoma City's 115-102 loss to the Jazz in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. The veteran point guard saw his highest allotment of minutes over the first three games of the series and parlayed the opportunity into his best effort during that span. Felton was particularly sharp from distance, and he's now upped his scoring totals in each contest against the Jazz. Despite the encouraging effort, it will be difficult to project Felton's playing time from game to game given how tight playoff rotations tend to be.
Felton pitched in 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), one assist and two steals across 18 minutes in Sunday's 108-105 loss to the Trail Blazers. Felton posted his second consecutive double-digit scoring effort after not having accomplished the feat in his first 10 games of March. The 13-year veteran typically sees minutes in the teens, but his production remains hard to trust unless he sees a spot start due to injury in front of him.
