Brooklyn Nets waive former IU guard Yogi Ferrell

  • 12/08/2016 2:24 pm in

Former Indiana guard Yogi Ferrell was placed on waivers on Thursday afternoon by the Brooklyn Nets after appearing in 10 of the team’s first 21 games.

Ferrell averaged 5.4 points, 1.7 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 15.4 minutes per game for the Nets, who signed him after releasing Greivis Vásquez.

Unless another NBA team claims Ferrell, Brooklyn will still own his rights. If he goes unclaimed, he would be assigned to the team’s Development League affiliate, the Long Island Nets.

According to Bobby Marks of the Vertical, the salary cap hit for the Nets waiving Ferrell is just $102,300.

Update: The Nets have signed Spencer Dinwiddie for the roster spot vacated by Ferrell:

    I imagine that unfortunately because of Yogi’s size it’s going to take a while before he finds a home that sticks for a while. He’s gotta find the system he fits into the best and really prove himself to be anywhere above a 13-15th man in the rotation.

    That being said I do think he’ll find a home that’s best for him and wish him nothing but the best of luck going forward.

    Given his limited minutes and exposure, I was pleased with his averages and output. I believe Yogi is a capable backup in the league. Good luck to Yogi and keep working hard!

    Maybe he will reunite with TW down in Memphis. With Conley being out they are down a PG.

    Nothing more to add. Will never forget Yogi, good luck young man.

    Spencer Dinwiddie WHOOOOO???????????????

    That is why the Nets are losers and always will be.

    It’s the Nets, who along with the Sixers and Wizards form the east coast triumvirate of ineptitude. Getting waived will probably raise his stock with the rest of the league.

    The Nets are a terrible organization, with no clear plan for forming a winning team or for determining the players that they need to become a winning team.

    Makes it apparent how cold the environment is as a professional athelete… Godspeed Yogi.
