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.
