The Trail Blazers have addressed their needs at point guard.

The Blazers on Thursday got both experience and youth at point guard, trading Andre Miller to Denver for veteran point guard Raymond Felton and drafting Duke point guard Nolan Smith with the No. 21 overall pick.

Andy Miller, the agent for Andre Miller, confirmed the trade.

Blazers interim general manager Chad Buchanan did not return messages and scout Mike Born said he would not comment.

Dallas is also reported to be in the deal, acquiring Rudy Fernandez and the rights to Petteri Koponen from the Blazers in exchange for their first-round pick (No. 26 overall). Portland will send that pick to Denver.

Smith, a four-year player at Duke, was the ACC Player of the Year, averaging 20.6 points.

Thursday accomplishes the Blazers' desire to become both younger at point guard while not sacrificing experience.

Felton, who turns 27 on Sunday, has played six NBA seasons, and is coming off one of his best years playing for both the New York Knicks and the Denver Nuggets. Felton (6-foot-1, 205 pounds) is regarded as a strong pick-and-roll player with below-average outside shooting.
