Yogi Ferrell Backs Out Of Two-Year, $5.3M Deal With Mavericks

Yogi Ferrell Backs Out Of Two-Year, $5.3M Deal With Mavericks

Ferrell spent the previous two seasons with Dallas, averaging 10.2 points and 2.9 assists in 128 career games.

The Mavericks rescinded the 25-year-old point guard's qualifying offer last month to make him an unrestricted free agent, but the two sides barreled on a two-year, $5.3 million deal Thursday that Ferrell backed out of Friday morning.

Among those interested are the Cleveland Cavaliers and the New Orleans Pelicans, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

A Mavericks source told ESPN's Tim MacMahon that Ferrell's agent, Cervando Tejeda, informed the Mavs of Ferrell's decision after the team read the report online.

76ers trade forward Holmes to Suns
This morning, the team traded reserve center Richaun Holmes to the Phoenix Suns for cash, according to source. Bolden struggled offensively in this month's NBA Summer League and had a subpar season this year in Europe.

Without question, Ferrell, now 25 years of age, would be a solid addition to any National Basketball Association squad. He also knocked down 37.3 percent of his 3-pointers.

The Dallas Mavericks seem to have issues in free agency that most other teams either don't have to deal with or are able to keep under wraps, and it sounds like it is happening again.

The Cavs selected Collin Sexton with the No. 8 pick in this year's Draft, which doesn't leave much room for another ball-handler on their roster.

Which team Ferrell will be playing for next season is still up for debate.
