That same pizzazz Ferrell displayed which earned him a two-year contract and the Western Conference Rookie of the Month for the month of February has disappeared. And that’s something that Cuban has noticed. “Yogi’s got to play with the same level of desperation that he played with before as opposed to thinking, ‘Ok, I’m here to stay,’ ‘’ Cuban said. “Without Yogi playing a little bit desperate, we don’t get those 50-50 balls. And that’s not just for Yogi. That’s for everybody, top to bottom.’’
“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.
