NEW YORK -- New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton is expected to plead guilty to a felony in his gun possession case in exchange for a no-jail sentence, prosecutors said Monday. Christine Michael Sr Jersey . Felton was in court as the Manhattan district attorneys office outlined the agreement, which would resolve a gun case that arose amid the breakup of his marriage. Hes expected to admit June 30 to at least one charge, attempted criminal possession of a weapon -- he wont have to come to court to do so -- and get a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service. "I want to thank the DA for being fair to me in this whole situation," Felton said outside court, also thanking his family, friends and fans "for supporting me and understanding who, the person, I am." His lawyer, Jim Walden, said the plea would allow Felton to "continue his career without interruption." The DAs office had no immediate comment on the agreement. Felton was arrested in February, turning himself in shortly after a Dallas Mavericks-Knicks game at Madison Square Garden. Authorities said his estranged wifes lawyer had brought a loaded semi-automatic handgun to a police precinct, saying it was Feltons and she wanted it out of their house. His wife, law student Ariane Raymondo-Felton, had filed for divorce the week before. Her lawyer didnt immediately respond to an inquiry about Feltons planned plea. Felton was charged with offences including a weapon-possession offence that carries the potential for up to seven years in prison; it outlaws large-capacity ammunition magazines, under some circumstances. The gun in Feltons case had a magazine that could hold about 20 rounds, prosecutors said. His lawyer said Felton never used the gun to threaten anyone. The NBA has said its monitoring the case. The league usually waits until criminal cases against players are resolved before deciding whether to impose any fine or suspension. The former University of North Carolina star, who turns 30 on Thursday, was the fifth pick of the 2005 NBA draft. After five seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats, he had stints with the Knicks, Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers before returning to the Knicks for the 2012-13 season. Felton averaged a career-low 9.7 points last season as the Knicks went 37-45 and missed the playoffs. The point guard missed 17 games while battling injuries, and team president Phil Jackson recently denied a report that he had told Felton he planned to try to trade him this summer. Felton is set to earn $3.8 million next season and has a player option that would pay him $4 million in 2015-16. Felton is among a few pro athletes who have gotten into trouble with New Yorks strict gun laws. Then-New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress was arrested in 2008 after accidentally shooting himself in a Manhattan nightclub. He pleaded guilty to an attempted weapon-possession charge and served about two years in prison. Fighter Robert Guerrero was arrested at John F. Kennedy Airport last year after he presented a locked gun box containing an unloaded handgun during check-in. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was ordered to pay a $250 fine and complete 50 hours of community service. ------ AP Basketball Writer Brian Mahoney contributed to this report. Denzelle Good Jersey . -- The Toronto Maple Leafs are tightening the race for second place in the Atlantic Division. Chester Rogers Jersey . -- Craig Anderson has quite a record against his former team, the Florida Panthers.The struggling Winnipeg Jets look to get back on track tonight as they continue their homestand against the winless Carolina Hurricanes. Viewers in the Jets region can watch the game on TSN3 at 6:30pm ct while listeners can follow the action on TSN Radio 1290. The Jets come in having lost four straight in regulation since a season- opening 6-2 win at Arizona. They have scored just two goals over the losing streak while giving up 13. Winnipeg saw Calgary score three times in the second period on Sunday en route to a 4-1 setback. Mark Scheifele had the goal and Ondrej Pavelec made 25 saves. In that second period you have to find that confidence to stay up and stay aggressive, Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice said. Maurice will face the Hurricanes for the first time since his second stint as the clubs head coach came to an end on Nov. 28, 2011. He first joined the franchise as head coach of the Whalers in 1995-96 before getting fired midway through the 2003-04 campaign, and was again hired as the clubs head coach on Dec. 2, 2008. Winnipeg will play the third contest of a five-game homestand hoping to avoid losing five straight in regulation for the first time since Jan. 2-11. Pavelec is 7-7-2 with a 3.47 GAA and .890 save percentage in 17 previous starts versus the Hurricanes. The Hurricanes are winless through their first four games of the season and have posted back-to-back shootout losses following a pair of setbacks to the New York Islanders to open the schedule. Carolina has not gone five straight games without a win to open the season since 2003-04, when the club posted two losses and three ties. The 1987-88 Hartford Whalers marked the last time the franchise opened a season 0-5. Carolina, though, is expected to have forward Jeff Skinner in the lineup for the first time this season as he returns from a concussion suffered on Oct. 5 in the preseason finale. The 2011 Calder Trophy winner collected a career-high 33 goals along with 54 points in 71 games last year, his fourth in the NHL. I feel good. Its been nice for me to have a few practices under my belt. Weve had a couple real good days out here, and thats been good for my coonfidence, Skinner said on Carolinas website. Nate Hairston Jersey. Im ready to get going Defenseman Andrej Sekera (upper body) and John-Michael Liles (undisclosed) could also return to the ice tonight, while forward Eric Staal, who has missed the past two with an upper-body injury, is expected to travel with Carolina for the rest of its road trip. The Hurricanes began a five-game swing with a 2-1 shootout loss to the New York Rangers last Thursday and play their next four in Western Canada. Forward Chris Terry has stepped up for the shorthanded Hurricanes, scoring three goals in four games. He had the lone tally versus the Rangers, while Anton Khudobin made 33 saves. The effort was good, said Hurricanes first-year head coach Bill Peters. These guys work and compete. Cant question that. Khudobin lost his only career start versus the Jets, but gave up only two goals on 27 shots faced. Cam Ward is 22-11-4 with a 2.96 goals against average and .902 save percentage versus the Jets and it is unknown which goaltender will start tonight. The Jets have won five of the last seven meetings between these two clubs, though the Canes have taken a victory in three of their last four trips to Winnipeg.
