The Brooklyn Nets have released guard Greivis Vasquez and brought in undrafted former Indiana star Yogi Ferrell. Yahoo Sports reported the news first.

Per Yahoo:

    “Vasquez signed a free-agent deal with Brooklyn in July, but a recurring injury to his right ankle will necessitate surgery and he’s expected to miss extended time in rehabilitation. Vasquez’s season was cut short a year ago after 23 games in Milwaukee when he underwent surgery on the same ankle to remove a bone spur.”

Vasquez, 29, has played in the NBA for seven years and six teams. Ferrell had been with the Nets’ D-League affiliate in Long Island.
