The Brooklyn Nets announced this afternoon that they’re requesting waivers on rookie point guard Yogi Ferrell.
Brooklyn made the announcement on their official site. This marks the second time the Nets are waiving Ferrell, with the first coming back on Oct 21. The undrafted rookie from Indiana signed a deal with Brooklyn on Nov 9 when the Nets were paper-thin at the point guard spot.
Ferrell’s missed the last two contests because of an ankle injury, and he suited up in black and white for ten games before that.
Over the course of those games, he got decent playing time. Ferrell was one of the first guys off the bench for Kenny Atkinson, and he averaged a tick over 15 minutes a night. Unfortunately, Ferrell had issues on both ends of the ball and averaged just 5.4 points on 36.7 percent from the field.
His assist-to-turnover ratio wasn’t good either, and it’s apparent there were some decision-making issues. In total, Ferrell had 17 assists to his 14 turnovers.
Brian Lewis of the New York Post noted how vague General Manager Sean Marks was when asked about the decision.
Marks: “I’d hate to limit us to just a position. I’ve never put something like that on it. We’ll look at every position to be honest.” #Nets
