NBA commissioner Adam Silver believes Raymond Felton’s weapons-related felony charges create “an image problem for the league.”

“We spend a lot of time here educating our players on guns,” Silver told ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike” on Friday morning. “We have a rookie transition program where there are several seminars about, of course, the dangers of guns. But, also, players do have a legal right to guns in certain jurisdictions and we assist our players if they are insistent on having a gun, how to do it legally.

“In this case, at least, the allegation is Raymond didn’t have a legal gun in New York. So it’s a problem for all of us; it’s an image problem for the league.”
