Sacramento Kings point guard Yogi Ferrell recently joined the team on a two-year, $6.2 million contract, abruptly backing out of a prior agreement with his former team, the Dallas Mavericks, who offered him a two-year $5.3 million pact.

Ferrell explained his decision during an appearance on The Jim Rome Show on Monday.

“The main thing is that I like their youth and I like their style of play,” Ferrell explained. “It’s faster, they get up and down and I feel that’s the same game I play my entire life. I feel like I can go in there and kind of mold the identity of the Kings and just give them another spark that they need.”

Ferrell averaged 10.2 ppg last season after working hard to earn a contract with the Mavericks, coming from the NBA’s D-League.

“Time has gone by fast, that’s for sure,” Ferrell said. “I’m taking every moment of it. I’m very blessed to even be in the position to allow myself to excel in this league.”

“I was undrafted, played a couple games with Brooklyn, didn’t work out. I just wanted to make sure I was ready for my next opportunity. I knew it was gonna come just because of how hard I work.”
