The Toronto Raptors' G League affiliate, Raptors 905, has released former National Basketball Association guard Kay Felder after his arrest on domestic violence charges outside Toronto on Monday morning, the team announced. He was immediately cut from the Raptors, a statement said.
Felder allegedly choked a longtime female acquaintance following an argument during dinner, according to TMZ Sports. The victim had enough time to call a family member, who then called the police.
Now Felder, who was drafted in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft, is making the news for all the wrong reasons. He averaged almost four points per game prior to landing in Toronto in October, according to his online statistics.
We've reached out to Felder for comment - so far, no word back.
In 58 career National Basketball Association games, Felder averaged 3.8 points and 1.3 assists in 9.1 minutes per game. Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested during Thanksgiving weekend for assaulting his girlfriend in a Tampa hotel and was subsequently released. He's now released from custody but is due back in court later this month.
