The Mavericks will sign Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell to a 10-day contract according to The Vertical’s Shams Charania. Ferrell is currently a member of the D-League’s Long Island Nets.

Ferrell, a 23 year old 6’-0 guard, has appeared in 18 games for the Nets and is averaging 18.7 points per game on 42.2 percent shooting and shoots 39.8 percent from behind the 3-point arc. He also averages 2.3 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 1.6 steals.

He also appeared in 10 games with the Brooklyn Nets this season where he averaged 5.4 points on 36.7 percent shooting, 1.2 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in 15.1 minutes per game.

The addition of Ferrell likely means that the team will part ways with Pierre Jackson, who recently signed his second 10-day contract with the Mavericks. Players on 10-day contracts can be released early, though the team is still responsible to play the player the full amount guaranteed. Jackson started in the Mavericks loss to the Thunder Thursday but left the game with a left hamstring strain in the second quarter and didn’t return.

With injuries plaguing Dallas’ guards, the revolving door of D-League call-ups likely won’t stop spinning any time soon.
