Yogi Ferrell called up by Brooklyn Nets

Yogi Ferrell, the Indiana University 2016 graduate who was with the Brooklyn Nets in training camp and was their final roster cut (on Oct. 21), has been called up to the NBA. This is Brooklyn’s first-ever call-up in Long Island Nets history.

The Nets (3-4) re-signed Ferrell Wednesday ahead of their game that night against the New York Knicks (2-4). He could make his NBA debut in a special and memorable place: Madison Square Garden.

In order to sign Ferrell, the Nets waived guard Greivis Vasquez, who re-injured his surgically repaired right ankle during Saturday’s loss to the Bucks.

After being with the Nets in camp, he had spent the last two weeks with the Long Island Nets — Brooklyn’s D-League club. They was even a promotion for IU fans in New York City to attend Ferrell’s D-League debut on Nov. 23 and get autographs afterwards.

Yogi, the Park Tudor School product, appeared in three preseason games and averaged 4.3 points and 1.7 assists per game.

Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical first reported the transaction.
