“We had a guy [in Pierre Jackson] that was two days into a 10-day [contract] that had just pulled his hamstring and he wasn’t going to be able to play the remainder of his 10-day, and we needed a guy,” Carlisle said. “Pierre Jackson had started the previous game, and so we had to let him go.” Thus, the search was on for another point guard. The Mavs found Ferrell languishing with the Long Island Nets in the NBA D-League and longing for another shot in the NBA following his failed attempt with the Brooklyn Nets.
And since the injury would sideline Jackson indefinitely, the Mavs decided to release him on Saturday and sign point guard Yogi Ferrell to a 10-day contract. Coach Rick Carlisle describes it as a “very bad break’’ for Jackson. Carlisle and Donnie Nelson – the Mavs’ president of basketball operations – even had a discussion with Jackson about his basketball future before waving him. “Donnie and I talked to him yesterday and just explained to him that he’s obviously very close,’’ Carlisle said. “The No. 1 thing is to get himself healthy — we will help him get healthy.
