After going undrafted in the 2019 NBA draft, Floyd joined MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg of the Basketball Bundesliga. He left the team before appearing in a single game. In September 2019, he joined Larissa. In 20 games, Floyd averaged 5.1 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game, leading the Greek League in blocks.

On July 30, 2020, he signed with Promitheas Patras, but was released two months later, after winning his first of two Greek Super Cups.

Hapoel Gilboa Galil of the Israeli Basketball Premier League was his next destination and Floyd made the best out of the opportunity, averaging career-highs 11.4 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. 

Now, he's set to debut in another competition, the Basketball Champions League.
