Raptors 905 Waive Kay Felder After Domestic Violence Allegation

The Raptors 905, Toronto’s G League affiliate, have waived Kay Felder after the point guard was charged by police in connection with a domestic violence allegation, the team announced today in a press release.

Before the club confirmed Felder’s release, a G League spokesperson had informed TMZ Sports that the 23-year-old would be placed on indefinite leave, pending a full investigation.

According to TMZ’s report, Felder was arrested early on Monday morning near Toronto and booked for assault after reportedly getting violent and making threats toward a woman. He was released from custody on Monday and is due to appear in court later this month, per TMZ.

Felder, who was selected 54th overall in the 2016 NBA draft by the Cavaliers, appeared in 42 games for Cleveland in his rookie season, then played 16 total games in 2017/18 for the Bulls and Pistons. The 5’9″ guard was with the Raptors for training camp this fall, but was waived before the regular season began, joining Toronto’s NBAGL squad at that point.

A return to the NBA this season for Felder appears unlikely after this incident.

    Pro sports are taking this serious. The NFL is dealing with Kareem Hunt and Rueben Foster from last week. The sad thing is all the hate mail TMZ got from Chiefs fans for releasing the video, saying they ruined Hunts career. They criticized the NFL and Cleveland police for weak investigation, while the Chiefs kept theirs open. Jameis Winston is a great role model. One more case in the NFL and he should be done.
    The NFL is mad at the Redskins for picking up Foster. The teams are saying don’t give these guys another chance.

    Amico Hoops says Felder has been waived. Says he is related to former NBA player Steve Smith.

      He played 6 minutes with the Pistons and 0 with the Raptors — the most recent decent photo we have of him was with the Bulls.

          No worries. For what it’s worth, there were more details in the TMZ report if you were curious about the specific allegations against Felder — I didn’t feel comfortable including them all here since they were based on sourced info rather than, say, a police report.
