Reports: Ferrell signs free agent deal with Brooklyn #iubb

Former Indiana point guard Yogi Ferrell has signed a free agent contract with the Brooklyn Nets, according to multiple reports.

Ferrell played in four games off the bench on a guard-heavy Nets outfit in this month’s NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Ferrell averaged 8.8 points and 1.8 assists per game, but shot only 2-for-11 from 3-point range. He closed his summer with 10 points and two steals against Cleveland on July 16.

Shams Charania of The Vertical first reported Ferrell’s deal with Brooklyn.

This gives Ferrell an opportunity to further prove himself during Brooklyn’s preseason camp. The Nets are looking for point guard depth and enter the fall with several options. Brooklyn selected combo guards Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead in last month’s draft and also recently signed point guards Greivis Vasquez and Randy Foye.

Ferrell, who originally signed a Summer League contract with the Nets in June, was free to sign with anybody. He graduated from IU as the program’s all-time leader in assists (633) and games played and started (137). As a senior last season, Ferrell averaged 17.3 points and 5.5 assists per game.

  1. Great for Yogi! I watched the Summer League games. If the Coach will actually give Yogi the keys to the offense and let him run the show for 5-10-15 minutes, he will like what he gets. Neither Whitehead nor LeVert can run an offense as a PG. Foye does not impress me as a PG. Greivis is a PG but I think that Yogi will be a superior shooter. All you can ask for is the chance. Then you have to do it! Yogi can do it!
