The Sacramento Kings agreed with free agent Yogi Ferrell on a two-year deal worth $6.2 million after the guard reneged on a verbal agreement with the Dallas Mavericks, league sources told Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania.
Ferrell reportedly agreed to re-sign with the Mavericks on a two-year deal worth $5.3 million on Thursday before backing out Friday morning, with his agent, Cervando Tejeda, telling Charania: "We felt uncomfortable and will weigh our options."
This isn't the first time this summer a player has backed out of a deal in favor of joining the Kings. Nemanja Bjelica reportedly agreed to a one-year, $4.4-million deal with the 76ers before citing his interest to play in Europe. Shortly after, the Serbian forward reportedly began discussions with Sacramento and is now said to be closing in on a two-year, $13-million contract.
Ferrell, a 6-foot combo guard, played all 82 games with the Mavericks last season, averaging 10.2 points in 27.8 minutes per game.
