Ferrell joins the Kings after spending most of the last two seasons with the Dallas Mavericks. The 25-year-old averaged 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists this past season while shooting 42.6 percent from the field and 37.3 percent from three.
Undrafted out of Indiana University, the 6-0, 180-pound guard spent time between the Brooklyn and Long Island Nets as an affiliate player following summer league, making his NBA debut on Nov. 30, 2016. He totaled 10 NBA appearances with Brooklyn between G-League assignments, registering 5.4 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in 15.1 minutes per game before earning a 10-day contract from the Mavericks in late January.
Ferrell had initially agreed to a two-year contract with the Mavericks, but backed out of that agreement.
