Former Cavaliers guard Kay Felder is going home.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported Felder is signing a two-way contract with the Detroit Pistons. The deadline for teams to sign players to two-way deals is Sunday.

Felder, a 5-foot-9, 176-pound point guard is a Detroit native and attended Oakland University.

He will replace Dwight Buycks as a two-way player on the Pistons’ roster.

He played 22 games for the Chicago Bulls this season, averaging 3.9 points, 1.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 9.6 minutes per game off the bench.

Felder was drafted in the second-round in 2016 by the Atlanta Hawks and then traded to the Cavaliers for $2.4.

He played in 42 games last season for Cleveland, averaging 4.0 points, 1.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 9.2 minutes off the bench.

He was sent back to Atlanta on Oct. 14, 2017 along with Richard Jefferson, $3 million, a 2019 second-round draft pick and a 2020 second-round draft pick for the rights to Dimitrios Agravanis and Sergiy Gladyr.

Two days later, Atlanta waived Felder, who was claimed off waivers by Chicago.

The Bulls waived Felder on Dec. 19.
