DALLAS (AP) - The NBA has suspended new Dallas Mavericks guard Raymond Felton for the first four games of the upcoming season after his guilty plea in a New York gun case.

Felton's suspension without pay was announced Thursday, two weeks after he took a plea deal that involved admitting a felony but avoiding jail time.

Felton said in a statement released Thursday by the Mavericks that he demonstrated poor judgment and takes full responsibility for his actions. He says he's eager to start fresh in Dallas.

Felton pleaded guilty July 23 in New York to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. He admitted he knowingly had a large-capacity ammunition magazine and a semi-automatic pistol without a license.
