Yogi Ferrell News
Los Angeles Clippers point guard Yogi Ferrell is sticking with the organization through the season after having impressed in his first three games. Ferrell faces a muddled path to playing time with Reggie Jackson and Rajon Rondo currently ahead of him on the depth chart (with Patrick Beverley also in the mix when healthy), making him a difficult fantasy commodity barring widespread injury to the L.A. backcourt. Ferrell produced double-digit scoring averages during his first two seasons in the NBA, but he has since bounced around the league, primarily as a reserve PG. He holds a non-guaranteed year on his deal to rejoin the Clippers in 2021-22.
Sacramento Kings guard Yogi Ferrell is expected to see increased playing time, according to head coach Dave Joerger. Ferrell was impressive on Wednesday, he dropped 17 points in 16 minutes off the bench. It's unclear how much more playing time Ferrell will receive, but it's unlikely he sees minutes in the mid-20s. The most likely outcome here is Ferrell gets minutes in the high teens or possibly low 20s on some nights. This is a wait and see kind of situation in most formats.
The Mavericks and guard Yogi Ferrell have agreed to terms on a new $5.3 million contract that will keep him with the team for the next two seasons. Ferrell was relatively reliable for Dallas in 2018, appearing in 82 games and starting 21 of them. Averaging 10.2 points per contest to close out last season, he also shot an acceptable 37 percent from deep in addition to sporting a 103.8 defensive rating, the best of his career. Though he will see some minutes this upcoming season, they may take a slight dip with the addition of rookie guard Luka Doncic, but with guard Wesley Matthews rumored to be on the move, that could very well change.
Dallas Mavericks guard Yogi Ferrell brought some nice energy off the bench for his team in their win over the Blazers on Tuesday, scoring 15 points on a clean 6-for-9 shooting, going 3-for-5 from behind the arc in the contest. Ferrell did most of his damage in the scoring column in this one, posting just one rebound and three assists with no defensive stats in his 18 minutes. Ferrell is a decent streamer for owners in desperate need of some guard stats, but for long-term needs, he's simply too far behind on the depth chart to be counted on in most leagues.
