It turned out to be quite a night for the Nuggets. The Portland Trail Blazers acquired guard Raymond Felton from the Denver Nuggets in exchange for veteran guard Andre Miller. Miller's non-guaranteed contract includes a $7.8 million team option by June 30, which made him attractive to the Nuggets. Felton, 27, has a year remaining on his contract that pays him $7.5 million. Miller, 35, averaged 12.7 points, 7 assists and 3.7 rebounds last season. Felton was traded in February from the New York Knicks to Denver, where he averaged 11.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 6.5 assists in 21 games. The Nuggets also got the #26 pick in tonight's draft in the deal, Jordan Hamilton of Texas. He averaged more than 18 points a game last season.
