Felder waived after domestic violence allegation

NBA's Kay Felder Arrested for Assault, Allegedly Choked Woman

Felder, 23, was arrested near Toronto early Monday morning after a reported physical altercation with a woman he has known for years, TMZ reported.

Kay Felder - a 2016 NBA Draft pick who now plays in the G League - was arrested near Toronto early Monday morning for assault and we're told the alleged victim is a woman.

Kay Felder spent time with multiple teams, including the Bulls, but was released by the Raptors 905 following an arrest for domestic abuse. Citing sources, TMZ claims the two got into a post-dinner argument before Felder allegedly choked the woman, leaving visible marks on her neck.

Felder was later arrested for assault and utter threats. Our sources say the alleged victim was able to call a family member who then called police. He's now released from custody but is due back in court later this month. "As this matter is before the courts, Raptors 905 will not comment further".

Felder, who played for the Raptors 905 of the G-League, has been released. The Cavs traded Felder to the Atlanta Hawks in a cap-clearing move in October 2017, and he was subsequently waived.

The 5-foot-9 guard appeared in 42 games for the Cavs in 2016-17, averaging 4.0 points and 1.4 assists.

Felder is the Horizon League career assists leader from his time at Oakland University, and at only 23 years old, could have made his impact on an National Basketball Association team with enough hard work.
