Guard Kay Felder, whom the Bulls waived Dec. 19, reportedly has agreed to terms on a two-way deal with the Pistons. Felder appeared in 14 games for the Bulls, averaging 3.9 points. ‘‘Hopefully it’s a place he can stick,’’ Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said. ‘‘Kay’s a really tough-nosed kid. That’s great. I’m excited for him. I thought he did some good things for our team. Ultra-quick, bouncy, can get to the rim, a guy that can get it going.’’
Shams Charania: Sources: The Detroit Pistons are signing guard Kay Felder to a two-way NBA contract. Felder, a Detroit native, was Cleveland’s second round pick in 2016 and in his second NBA season.
Bobby Marks: Chicago will have a $489K cap hit with the Kay Felder waiver. The Bulls now have a league high $15.9M in room with 14 players under contract. Felder had a $1.5M team option in 2018-19 and a claiming team must have room or a trade exception.
The Chicago Bulls announced today that the team has waived guard Kay Felder. Felder (5-6, 176) appeared in 14 games for Chicago and averaged 3.9 points, 1.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 9.6 minutes. He also played in three games for the Windy City Bulls and averaged 17.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists, while shooting 45.2 percent from the field (19-of-42).
Adrian Wojnarowski: Atlanta will likely waive Kay Felder too, league sources tell ESPN.
As for Felder, he’s almost certainly not going to make the 15-man roster, barring the Cavs trading away two players. He’s hoping to get Cleveland’s remaining “two-way” contract, in which he can spend a part of the year in the NBA and the rest in the developmental “G” League. Felder’s roster spot was compromised first by the signing of Calderon, and then by the surprise acquisition of Rose.

Marc Stein: One trusted source pulled me aside at the @nbagleague Showcase last week in suburban Toronto and insisted that the Cavs will “definitely” swing at least one deal before the Feb. 8 trade deadline. But is there really one deal out there that closes this gap?
With that in mind, the prudent route is to take on players — even if they carry larger salary obligations than the Mavericks would like — provided the Mavericks also can get prime assets in return. “I would say we are looking to use our cap space actively,” Cuban said Monday. “We will take back salary to get picks or guys we think can play.”
For a few fleeting moments, several Clippers dared the Rockets to come farther into the room, sources said. Security and team officials soon converged on the Rockets, pushing them out the door and back toward the visiting locker room, sources said. Ariza was described as the first one through the door, with Paul lingering in the back, witnesses told ESPN.
