Despite being listed at 6’0” and £ 175, fifth-year guard Yogi Ferrell is playing with the mind of a giant.
So when the Los Angeles Clippers decided to sign a two-year deal with Ferrel, it was easy to see what appealed to a team full of chip-carrying players.
[Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Ferrell’s deal is non-guaranteed for the 2021-22 season]
Ferrell is currently playing for the fifth team after breaking the draft in 2016, but has only been able to play more than 10 games in two franchises (Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks) in his short career. did.
Of course, given that these two teams experienced with point guards Isaiah Thomas and JJ Barea, respectively, why did Ferrel’s height point guards feel comfortable playing the heavier part? There is no doubt about it.However, due to the limitations provided by his physical profile, it was a difficult battle for Indianapolis natives.
Ferrell, who plays a small role in the Clippers, averaged 4.7 points and 3.3 assists (17.4 points and 12.4 assists per 36 minutes) in 9.7 minutes per game, shooting .500 percent from the 3-point range.
Expect Ferrel to continue to win minutes in the absence of the former, as guard Patrick Beverley played indefinitely due to a broken left hand. In particular, there is a history of age and injury for backup guard Rajon Rondo, which the Clippers acquired shortly before the closing date.
