As the LA Clippers were on the verge of completing their championship roster, the former All-Rookie guard, Yogi Ferrell, was signed on a minimum contract. He was considered a possible solution to the Clippers’ issues at the point guard position. The main focus was to assist the superstar duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, and Ferrell had the potential to fulfill that role.

The six-foot point guard could not contribute much outside of scoring and minimal playmaking. Though he had a phenomenal career with the Kings and Mavericks, his ability to score at the NBA level did not last long.

That said, Ferrell has always been inefficient, as his career field-goal percentage stands at 42. This statistic is not a good look, especially for a point guard searching for an opportunity in a high-volume league.

Once he arrived at the LA Clippers for the 202-21 season, he showed up off the bench for eight games. Ferrell averaged 4.6 points and 2.1 assists in approximately 12.0 minutes per contest during this time frame. What’s more, he shot 33.3% from the field on 4.5 attempts while also posting a three-point percentage of 31.6.

These shooting splits add to why the front office showed no signs of hesitation in moving on. As Ferrell is an undersized guard, he could not even the gap in passing and defense for the Clippers to survive with him on the floor. Additionally, Ferrell has not seen the NBA after his time with the LA Clippers.
