Raymond Felton agreed to a one-year deal with the Thunder, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.
Everyone knows how badly OKC was killed when Russell Westbrook was off the floor, so adding someone like Felton makes sense as a backup. Plus, a one-year deal basically takes the risk out of it on the former Clipper guard. Felton may also play a handful of minutes next to Westbrook, which puts him at around 20 minutes per game.

Date:

Raymond Felton played 26 minutes and hit 5-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, four rebounds and two assists in Thursday's blowout win over the Grizzlies.

Felton hadn't played this many minutes since Feb. 15 and Chris Paul wasn't playing in that one. Despite tonight's line he's averaging just 5.6 points and 2.0 assists over his last five games, and has no fantasy value as long as Paul is healthy.
Mar 9 - 11:44 PM

Raymond Felton had one steal in 14 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

With Chris Paul back, Felton will see a major hit in playing time. He was kind of a letdown while CP3 was out, so his former owners will have no problem dropping him basically everywhere.
Feb 25 - 3:06 AM

Raymond Felton came off the bench again on Thursday and had 13 points, three rebounds, five assists, three steals and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes in a 123-113 loss to the Warriors.

Felton and Austin Rivers filled in admirably while Chris Paul was out, but it sounds like Paul may play on Friday night against the Spurs. It looks like it's safe to drop Felton, while Rivers could cling to a little value over the next week or so as CP3 gets back in the flow for the Clippers. But once Paul is back, both guards are going to see a big decrease in playing time.
Feb 24 - 1:33 AM

Raymond Felton headed back to the bench vs. the Knicks on Wednesday, where he posted three points, five rebounds and three assists, going 1-of-6 from the field with one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

Felton started on Monday but it was Luc Mbah a Moute getting the nod for defensive purposes tonight. Chris Paul's thumb surgery has thrust Felton into a bigger role, and he had been playing quite well, but he's little more than a flier option in 12-team leagues.
Feb 9 - 1:41 AM

Raymond Felton will shift to the Clippers' bench on Wednesday, with Luc Mbah a Moute starting.

Felton started vs. the Raptors on Monday but Doc Rivers continues to mix up his starting unit based on matchups. Felton's role is similar no matter where he starts the game, so use him as normal until Chris Paul (thumb) gets back on the court.
Feb 8 - 8:12 PM

Raymond Felton returned to the starting lineup on Monday but hit just 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, six rebounds, six assists and a steal in a 118-109 loss to the Raptors.

Felton has been playing pretty well while filling in for Chris Paul (thumb), despite bouncing in and out of the starting lineup. He saved his stat line tonight with the boards and assists, despite his shot not falling often. Felton is averaging 12 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.6 3-pointers on 43 percent shooting over his last five, while getting 30 minutes a night. He's a serviceable fantasy point guard as long as Paul's out with his injury.
Feb 6 - 10:26 PM

Raymond Felton is starting on Monday vs. the Raptors, sending Paul Pierce back to the bench.

Pierce started Sunday's game vs. the Celtics because it was his final game in Boston, but it was always expected to be a short-term move. Felton had 16 points with three 3-pointers, five rebounds and four assists in 25 minutes off the bench on Sunday, but gets a nice boost in the first unit. He's worth a look in standard leagues until Chris Paul (thumb) makes his return around March.
Feb 6 - 7:10 PM

Raymond Felton sparked a strong bench effort on Sunday, scoring 16 points with three 3-pointers, five rebounds and four assists in 25 minutes.

Felton shot 6-of-10 from the field with only one turnover, and it was an all-around great game for anyone rolling with him sans Chris Paul (thumb). His new backup role may or may not last, but either way he's just a late-round option if you need a cheap PG.
Feb 5 - 5:03 PM

Raymond Felton will come off the bench against the Celtics on Sunday.

Coach Doc Rivers is giving his guy, Paul Pierce, the start at likely his last game at TD Garden. Felton may move back into the starting lineup for the next time out, but his short-term appeal is running out with Chris Paul possibly coming back later this month.
Feb 5 - 2:01 PM

Raymond Felton scored nine points with five assists, four rebounds, one block and one steal in Thursday's loss to the Warriors.

One game after scoring 18 points, Felton returned to his normal self on offense. He is averaging 10.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 27.6 minutes per game over his last five. If you are in dire need of a point guard, he is worth a look until Chris Paul (thumb) is back. Otherwise, he can be left alone in most leagues.
Feb 3 - 1:49 AM

Raymond Felton will start again on Thursday night against the Warriors.

This comes as a surprise because it makes a lot of sense to start Luc Mbah a Moute against Kevin Durant. Considering this matchup, maybe Felton sticks in the starting lineup for a bit. He's still not a great pickup in most leagues, but give him a look if you need a little added help at point guard for the next month.
Feb 2 - 9:06 PM

Raymond Felton scored 18 points in a start against the Suns on Wednesday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

While he did have a good game tonight, he's probably going to be bumped back to the bench against the Warriors on Thursday. Stephen Curry destroyed Felton over the weekend and the Clippers can't start three guards with Kevin Durant at the three. Felton is still more of a drop than an add after this game.
Feb 2 - 2:00 AM

Raymond Felton started over Luc Mbah a Moute against the Suns on Wednesday.

The Clippers go small here, but it's likely all about the matchup. Felton has not played well and is a drop candidate in most leagues.
Feb 1 - 9:30 PM

Raymond Felton scored 10 points with seven rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

He'll have Stephen Curry draining threes in his nightmares tonight. Felton really hasn't panned out since the Chris Paul (thumb) injury and Blake Griffin returning sooner than expected doesn't help his case either. Most owners should probably be hitching their wagon to someone who can help you later, especially in head-to-head leagues.
