(WMBF) – Multiple published reports say Marion native Raymond Felton is going to join the NBA's New York Knicks.  Felton, a Latta High School alum, spent all 5 of his NBA seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats.

ESPN.com reports Felton will earn a starting salary of around $7 million.  The former UNC Tar Heel was looking for a long-term deal with Charlotte during the off-season last summer, but now looks like he'll be leaving the Carolinas for the first time in his playing career.
