Toronto Raptors Add to Point Guard Depth, Sign Kay Felder
You can never have enough point guard depth – at least that’s what the Toronto Raptors think.
Earlier in the week, the team announced the signing of guard Kay Felder. A miniature point guard standing at 5-foot-9, 175-pounds, Felder has failed to live up to his self-built hype coming out of college. A star at the University of Oakland, Felder was a Horizon Player of the League as a junior and even gained praised from legendary Michigan State coach Tom Izzo in the midst of his torrid college basketball run.
Last year, Felder split time between the Chicago Bulls and the Detroit Pistons, averaging 3.6-points and 1.3-assists per game across 16-games. He also played 20 games with Grand Rapids in the NBA G League, where he averaged 16.8-points and 5.8-assists per game, while playing 30-minutes a night.
The late second overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft is entering a crowded back court in Toronto. The Raptors already have point guards Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, Delon Wright, Lorenzo Brown, and Jordan Lloyd on the roster.
With the way the Raptors roster is constructed, it appears as though Felder will be relegated to the G League where he will play with the Raptors 905.
