Former Indiana PG Yogi Ferrell will reportedly sign a 2-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks after his 10-day expires.
After torching the Trail Blazers for 32 points in a 108-104 win on Friday night, undrafted rookie PG Yogi Ferrell will ink his first serious NBA contract— a two-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks.
Shams Charania of The Vertical reported the news.
Ferrell was initially signed to a 10-day contract, after injuries decimated the Mavs at the point guard position.
And since his arrival, Ferrell has been a revelation. He's scored 71 points and dished 20 assists in four games— all wins— against the Spurs, Cavaliers, 76ers and Trail Blazers.
On Friday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, Ferrell went 9-of-11 from behind the arc, including a three with 19 seconds left to ice the game. He also recorded a team-high five assists, and tallied 22 of his 32 in the first half. The IU product was simply unguardable, driving to the hoop, pulling up in transition— it didn't matter.
With the four-game win streak, the Mavericks are only 2.5 games out of the eighth seed in the western conference at 20-30.
