Blazers Trade Andre Miller To Nuggets For Raymond Felton, According To Reports

The Portland Trail Blazers are set to trade point guard Andre Miller to the Denver Nuggets in exchange for point guard Raymond Felton, according to a report by SI.com's Sam Amick. The two teams will apparently not swap their first-round picks in the 2011 NBA Draft -- Nolan Smith for Portland, Kenneth Faried for the Nuggets -- but Amick reports other assets will be involved.

Miller's contract for next season is unguaranteed, which means that Denver frees up salary in the deal, depending on the other pieces. Felton is signed for only one more year, and will serve as a strong defender and solid playmaker for Portland. He's not a great shooter, though, and that's what the Blazers have needed in the backcourt.
