Mavericks working on deal with Yogi Ferrell after rescinding qualifying offer
The Dallas Mavericks have rescinded their qualifying offer to guard Yogi Ferrell, but the sides are said to be working on a deal.
Yahoo’s Shams Charania reported the news Friday about Ferrell, saying the Mavs rescinded the qualifying offer. However, ESPN’s Tim MacMahon says not to worry, as the sides are close to a new deal.
Should say making Ferrell an unrestricted free agent. Point is $2.9M qualifying offer was a placeholder, and Mavs expect deal with Ferrell to be done soon.

Ferrell is in line to compete with rookie Luka Doncic for minutes next season. The former Indiana Hoosiers guard averaged 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game last season for Dallas.
