The Detroit Pistons considered signing Yogi Ferrell at the end of training camp after they waived Lorenzo Brown and Ray McCallum.
"He's a guy on draft night that didn't get drafted, and we tried to get in the race for some money to have him guaranteed," Stan Van Gundy said. "But Brooklyn had gobbled him up. He ended up getting cut there and has really latched on and played very, very well for Dallas."
Ferrell has signed a multi-year contract with the Mavericks and is averaging 14.2 points and 3.0 rebounds per game.
