NBA Trade Rumor 2011: Sacramento Kings Interested In Denver Nuggets Guard Raymond Felton

The trade rumors just keep on perking up for the Sacramento Kings. A new one has emerged from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, which might help temporarily alleviate their point guard issues for one season.

Both the Kings and the Los Angeles Lakers are interested in point guard Raymond Felton of the Denver Nuggets. Felton was traded from the New York Knicks as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal, but he had trouble balancing with Ty Lawson. With Denver likely to hitch their wagons to Lawson as their starting point guard, Felton is expendable, and with a $7.5 million expiring contract, he is a good option for teams in need of some relief at the one.

Beno Udrih is the current starting point for the Kings, but it's hard to rely on him to be effective as an extended starter. Felton would give Sacramento a nice option to share point minutes.  The Lakers probably want another point guard to help alleviate the load from the aging Derek Fisher and the inconsistent Steve Blake, and Felton could be perfect for Mike Brown's system.

Would Raymond Felton be a better fit next year for LA, Sacramento or Denver? Let us know in the comments!
