The Dallas Mavericks are expecting Yogi Ferrell to accept the $2.9 million qualifying offer, according to a report by Tim MacMahon of ESPN.
Mavs expect guard Yogi Ferrell to play for $2.9M qualifying offer this season, per source. Team will be patient looking for bargains with $4.4M cap-room exception or remaining cap space. Dirk will get exception or rest of cap space, whichever is more.

The 6-foot, 180-pound Indiana product averaged 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 27.8 minutes in playing all 82 games (starting 21) for the Mavericks last season.
Ferrell, 25, shot 42.6 percent from the field, 37.3 percent from deep and 79.6 percent from the free-throw line.
Dallas will do its due diligence in how it uses the $4.4 million exception or its remaining salary-cap space.
Face of the franchise Dirk Nowitzki will be re-signed by the Mavericks with either the exception of the cap space, whichever is greater.
