Raymond Felton’s name has appeared in trade rumors all season long, and the latest buzz has him being shipped off to Dallas. Depending on which media entity you want to believe, the deal was supposed to also include Nazr Mohammed and Sean May.

Here’s the Boston Globe‘s take:

An NBA source said a three-team trade is in the works that would include Oklahoma City sending guard Earl Watson to Charlotte, Dallas sending center DeSagana Diop to Charlotte, and Charlotte guard Raymond Felton going to Dallas.

According to ESPN, however, trade talks have cooled off, in part due to rookie DJ Augustin’s ab injury (expected to knock him out of action for a minimum of 10 days.)

It’s unclear at this point whether or not these talks will lead to any real moves (or will even resume), but for argument’s sake, say Felton somehow ends up in Dallas, is it a good move for Cuban and co.?
