MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Latta High School alum Raymond Felton says he and the Charlotte Bobcats are close to a new contract.

The former UNC Tar Heel was in town playing at Detroit Piston Chris Wilcox's charity golf tournament, which raised money to fight lupus.

Felton is a restricted free agent with the Bobcats, meaning he can sign with any team but Charlotte has a chance to match the offer. Both parties have been negotiating for a while without a resolution, but Felton thinks a deal is coming soon.

"We're close, we're close," said Felton. "Maybe before training camp, something will be done. If not, I gotta do what I gotta do."

The Marion native says he's happy with his current team and he wants to stay in Charlotte.

"I'm not going anywhere," said Felton. "That's where I want to be. I feel like that's my second home at this point, so there's nowhere else I want to be at the moment."
