With an average of 24.4 points and 9.3 assists per game in his final season, Felder finished third in the nation in scoring and first in assists. He was named the Horizon League Player of the Year and made the First-Team All-Horizon League for the second time in his collegiate career.

Felder was selected with the 54th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks. He was then traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers on draft night.

NBA

Felder has suited up for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons over the last two years.

The Cavaliers traded him to the Hawks following his rookie season, and Atlanta immediately waived him. The Bulls claimed Felder off of waivers, only to part ways with him themselves a few months later.

Following his short stint in Chicago, Felder signed a two-way contract with the Pistons for the remainder of the season.

Felder has career averages of 9.1 minutes, 3.8 points, 1.3 assists, 1.0 rebounds and 0.4 steals per game in the NBA.

G League

Felder has played in 31 games in the G League since being drafted in 2016. He spent time with the Canton Canton in his rookie season and played for both the Grand Rapids Drive and Windy City Bulls as a sophomore.

Felder's career-high came in 2016-17, when he scored 41 points against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. He made 11 of his 20 field goal attempts, six of his nine 3-point attempts and all 13 of his free throw attempts in the win, paving the way for him to be named the NBA Development League Performer of the Week.

Felder has career averages of 21.4 points, 5.8 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game in the G League.

Fun facts

Felder "unofficially" recorded the second-highest vertical leap of all time at the 2016 NBA Draft Combine.

Felder said Isaiah Thomas has "been a big inspiration" to him. Having watched him growing up, Felder has modeled his game after the two-time All-Star.
