After recently parting ways with Greek club Panathinaikos, Yogi Ferrell has lined up a new opportunity in Europe, having signed for the rest of the season with KK Cedevita Olimpija, the Slovenian club announced in a press release.
Ferrell, 28, appeared in a total of 259 regular season NBA games from 2016-21 with the Nets, Mavericks, Kings, Cavaliers, and Clippers. The veteran point guard finished last season with the Clippers, appearing in eight total regular season games for L.A. He averaged 4.6 PPG and 2.1 APG in 12.0 MPG, then logged garbage-time minutes in nine postseason contests.
Although Ferrell was under contract for 2021/22, his salary was non-guaranteed, so the Clippers waived him in September without taking on any dead money. Ferrell signed with Panathinaikos in October, but was unhappy with the limited role he played for the team.
Ferrell’s new team is based in Ljubljana, Slovenia and competes in the ABA League and the EuroCup. Olimpija is off to a 5-4 start in ABA play and has a 2-3 record in EuroCup play.
