SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz and free agent point guard Yogi Ferrell agreed to a contract, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The NBA insider reported Utah’s newest addition on Thursday, December 17.

The 6-foot, 178 lbs. point guard has spent time with the Brooklyn Nets, Dallas Mavericks, and Sacramento Kings since entering the NBA in the 2016-17 season.

Ferrell fills Utah’s 15th and final roster spot, which opened up earlier in the week after the Jazz waived Nigel Williams-Goss.

Prior to his time in the NBA, Ferrell starred at Indiana University.

After going undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft, he signed a deal with the Nets.

Brooklyn waived Ferrell in December 2016.

Following his time with the Nets, Ferrell joined Dallas on a 10-day contract and found success.

The following year during the 2017-18 season, he played in all 82 of Dallas’ games, including 21 starts.

Last season, Ferrell finished the second year of a two-year, $3 million deal with the Kings.

Ferrell owns career averages of 7.8 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 249 games. He’s started 53 games in his NBA career.
