Panathinaikos made a lucrative offer to Yogi Ferrell and waits for the answer of the NBA player

Panathinaikos has made a lucrative offer to Yogi Ferrell in hopes that the Greek club can lure him to Europe. As the side of the player has clarified to Eurohoops, Ferrell doesn’t exclude the possibility of signing overseas.

However, the deal is not finalized yet and Panathinaikos has to convince the player that moving to Greece is the right choice for his career. Ferrel has never played so far in his career outside the NBA and the G-League.

There’s restrained optimism from Panathinaikos that a deal can materialize soon, but that remains to be seen.

Ferrell, 28, joined the Clippers in April and averaged 4.6 points and 2.1 assists in eight regular-season games while also appearing in nine postseason matches.

Throughout his career in the NBA, the former Indiana Hoosier has overall played 259 regular-season games, averaging 7.7 points, 2.3 assists, and 2.1 rebounds with the Brooklyn Nets, Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings, Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Clippers.
