Free-agent guard Yogi Ferrell has reached agreement on a contract with the Sacramento Kings, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
Per the website, Ferrell’s contract with the Kings is for two years and $6.2 million.
The 6-foot-0 combo guard had agreed to a two-year deal earlier this week to return to the Dallas Mavericks, but changed his mind and decided to re-enter free agency.
“We felt uncomfortable and will weigh our options,” Ferrell’s agent, Cervando Tejeda, told Yahoo Sports.
Ferrell had also drawn interest from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans.
He will be joining a Kings’ backcourt that includes point guards De’Aaron Fox and Frank Mason III, and shooting guards Buddy Hield, Ben McLemore and Iman Shumpert.
Ferrell, 25, appeared in all 82 games with the Mavericks last season, compiling averages 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists.
Though barely 6-foot, Ferrell has found a niche in the NBA by playing primarily off the ball.
He went undrafted out of Indiana in 2016, but signed on with the Brooklyn Nets before landing with Dallas.
