CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed guard Kay Felder.
Felder was the number 54 pick of the 2016 NBA draft, and the Cavs acquired his rights on draft night. He has played in all seven games for Cleveland in the Las Vegas Summer League. He’s averaged 15.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.4 steals during those games.
Just 5-foot-9, Felder put up some big numbers during his three-year collegiate career at Oakland, averaging 24.4 points and an NCAA-leading 9.3 assists last season, when he was named Horizon League player of the year.
Felder was the only player in the country to rank in the Top 5 this past season in both scoring and assists and became just the fifth player in Division I history over the last 20 years to average over 23 points and six assists in a single season.
