Raptors 905 waive PG Felder following arrest

Raptors 905 waive PG Felder following arrest

Per ESPN's Tim Bontemps, the Raptors 905 have released point guard Kay Felder after the 22-year-old was charged with domestic violence on Monday morning.

3, 2018, Raptors 905 guard Kay Felder was charged by police in connection with an allegation of domestic violence.

"We're told the two got into an argument after dinner and Felder allegedly got violent and choked her, leaving nasty marks on her neck", the gossip rag reported. The victim called a family member, who then called police.

The 2016 NBA Draft pick has bounced around the NBA and G League, but his latest stop is immediately over.

He played in 42 games for the Cleveland Cavaliers as a rookie in 2016-17 and split the 2017-18 season with the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons. Raptors 905 have waived Felder, effective immediately.

Monday's arrest may cost Felder any hope of returning to the National Basketball Association. Reed is current playing for the Utah Jazz G League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars, suggesting Felder's career may not be over. He has seen only limited playing time in 58 career National Basketball Association games, averaging 3.6 points and 1.3 assists per game.

Following a series of National Football League controversies and criticism of its own leniency, the NBA strengthened its domestic violence policy in the most recent collective bargaining agreement.

Felder has since been released from custody and is due in court later this month.
