Default Raymond Felton has been terrible lately

From a fantasy bball perspective, but here's RotoWOrld:

Raymond Felton probably lost his job in the Blazers' nationally televised 74-71 home loss to the Clippers on Thursday, going hitless from the field on seven shot attempts on his way to zero points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal, and five turnovers in 24 minutes.
Felton has completely lost his confidence. Coming into camp out of shape he has not been able to shoot, so defenses are playing well off of him and that keeps him from penetrating, passing, and ultimately bogs down the Blazers' offense. Jamal Crawford is not the answer at PG, however, and Nolan Smith apparently isn't ready yet, so Felton has been allowed to keep ramming his head into the wall. The Blazers should try a Dirk Nowitzki-like rehab stint because they'll need Felton starting if they want to go anywhere, because Crawford is not the answer, and owners should try to wait and see what shoe drops next. If you have to drop him, though, we'd understand.

He should have lost his job well before this. He has been playing so bad it is epic. I have made countless posts about how much I hate him in the main thread. There are so many 2nd string PGs around the league that I would rather have than Felton right now.

Almost makes you wish we'd picked up Nate Robinson. There's got to be some way to trade this useless jack-wagon.....

How about Felton and Eliott Williams along with a draft pick for Goran Dragic and Hasheem Thabeet??? Low risk, possible reward.......

No way. I'd do Felton for Dragic straight up, but Thabeet is a bust, there is no possible reward there, so I'm not throwing in E. Williams into the deal. It would also be different if we planned on keeping Dragic for a while, but he expires after this season along with Felton. If Dragic were a target, there is no need to add anything because we could just try to sign him this summer without giving up assets.

How about Raymond Felton for Ramon Sessions???

I've liked Sessions since he was in Milwaukee, still remember him going off for 40 plus one night...can't remember when exactly that was.

I'm just tired of seeing Felton in a Blazers' uniform.....for Cleveland, it saves them a year in salary.

Or how about a trade with Atlanta.....Felton and Chris Johnson for Kirk Hinrich, would even be willing to switch first round picks....think we're currently slotted to pick up a couple picks ahead of them.....

I like the Sessions trade. I'd do the Kirk trade too if we don't have to switch picks. Kirk is an unrestricted free agent this summer and this season is pretty much f*cked already, so no reason to give up a better pick to maybe improve a tiny bit in a season when we likely won't make the playoffs anyway. Right now the Hawks are slated to get the 20th or 21st pick. Blazers are slated to get 13th.
