NBA Trade Rumors: Blazers, Nuggets Could Trade Raymond Felton, Andre Miller And Swap Draft Picks

The Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets are discussing a trade that would send Andre Miller to Denver for Raymond Felton, and also include a swap of first-round picks in the 2011 NBA Draft, reports Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

Miller has an unguaranteed contract for the 2011-12 season, which means that should the team waive him, the Nuggets could see real immediate cap savings in such a swap. Felton's contract only lasts one more year, but Felton is much younger.

The pick swap isn't major: Portland is slated to pick at No. 21 (where Morehead State big man Kenneth Faried has been a constant rumor) and Denver picks No. 22.

Portland has also been embroiled in rumors surrounding a trade with the San Antonio Spurs that would bring three-time All-Star Tony Parker to the Rose City.
