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

The Dallas Mavericks will host free agent Jameer Nelson on a recruiting visit Thursday, as part of ongoing negotiations with the former Orlando Magic point guard, according to sources close to the situation. Sources told ESPN.com that the Mavericks are bringing Nelson to town in hopes of finally closing a deal with him, as Dallas continues to pursue a veteran point guard to help fill the void created by Jose Calderon's exit in June.

There has been mutual interest between the Mavs and guard Mo Williams throughout the free-agency period. However, Williams has offers for more than the $2.7 million salary the Mavs can offer, sources said. A source also told ESPNDallas.com recently that Williams wasn’t the Mavs’ top target for their $2.7 million exception, declining to elaborate on the player who is a higher priority. (Jameer Nelson?)

After the Dallas Mavericks signed restricted free agent Parsons to a three-year, $46 million offer sheet, the 6-foot-9, 227-pound small forward was sure the Rockets were going to match it . But Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said Parsons’ contract under the deal was “untradeable,” so he didn’t match it, making Parsons a member of the Mavs. “I definitely was a little surprised that they didn’t match,” Parsons said. “I thought that was the plan going forward that they were going to [match]. “But I think [agent] Dan Fegan and my agency ... did a great job with this contract and really put pressure on them. They decided what they thought was best for their future and they told me to go get my best individual contract, and we both did what we thought was best for ourselves.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram
