HoopsHype Raymond Felton rumors
Former Knick point guard Raymond Felton and his wife settled their nasty divorce battle Thursday, her lawyer told The Post. Lawyers for Felton – who now plays for the Dallas Mavericks – and Ariane Raymondo, 26, each had several private discussions with Judge Deborah Kaplan in Manhattan Supreme Court in the morning before the judge spoke with them jointly.

Felton struck a no-jail plea deal with Manhattan prosecutors last month for possessing an illegal gun that Raymondo, a Cornell University grad, told cops he used to threaten her. He was busted in February after Raymondo turned him in to police and gave them the Belgian-made FNH Five-Seven 28mm handgun she said he waved at her twice during h eated fights at their Upper West Side apartment. Raymondo also told cops that Felton was a serial cheater and had carried on affairs with more than one mistress, law-enforcement sources have told the Post. Raymondo and Felton wed in 2012, and she filed for divorce in February. New York Post
Adrian Wojnarowski: In proposed deal, Dallas would send the Knicks its 2014 second round picks: Nos. 34 and 51, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. Twitter @WojYahooNBA
Sources told ESPN.com that the Mavericks, who immediately made reacquiring Chandler one of their priorities after their first-round playoff exit against San Antonio, soon will complete a trade with the Knicks that they will clinch by agreeing to take back the contract of New York's out-of-favor guard, Raymond Felton, as well. The trade is expected to cost Dallas two starters -- point guard Jose Calderon and center Samuel Dalembert -- along with prized young point guard Shane Larkin, reserve guard Wayne Ellington and future second-round draft compensation.

Sources tell Stein that the teams are in the process of setting up a call with the league office to get the requisite approval on the trade. Chandler is the player Dallas has missed most since it decided to let go several key contributors in free agency after the team's championship run in 2011. ESPN.com
