Dallas Mavericks point guard Raymond Felton pleaded guilty Wednesday in a New York gun case, taking a plea deal that involved admitting a felony but spares him jail. Felton pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. He admitted he knowingly had a large-capacity ammunition magazine and a pistol without a license. ESPN.com

"Are those charges true?'' Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Larry Stephen asked. "Yes, sir,'' Felton said, later adding in a soft voice, "I apologize.'' He was immediately sentenced to 500 hours of community service and ordered to pay a $5,000 fine. Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Jonathan Rebold said Felton will be allowed to do the service outside New York. If he complies, the case will be closed without jail time or probation. ESPN.com

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

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.
