Mavs point guard Yogi Ferrell was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team today.

Ferrell, who went undrafted out of Indiana, averaged 10.0 points and 3.7 assists in 46 games during his rookie campaign. He spent 10 of those games with the Brooklyn Nets before being waived. Ferrell eventually signed a 10-day deal with the Mavericks and put together one of the best 10-day performances in recent memory before earning a multi-year deal. He capped off the 10-day by hitting a rookie-record-tying nine 3-pointers in a win at Portland.

With Dallas, Ferrell averaged 11.3 points, 4.3 assists, and 1.1 steals in 36 games, including 29 starts. He shot 41.2 percent from the field and 40.3 percent from beyond the arc. Of the 24 rookies who attempted at least 100 3s this season, Ferrell finished fifth in 3-point percentage, at 38.6. Ferrell took home Rookie of the Month honors for the month of February.

Every other player on the All-Rookie Second Team was drafted in the lottery. Ferrell is the only player on either team to have gone undrafted.

Ferrell is the first Maverick to land a spot on either All-Rookie team since Marquis Daniels and Josh Howard shared Second-Team honors for the 2003-04 season.

Marquis Daniels – 2003-04 (Second Team)
Josh Howard – 2003-04 (Second Team)
Jason Kidd – 1994-95 (First Team)
Jamal Mashburn – 1993-94 (First Team)
Roy Tarpley – 1986-87 (First Team)
Sam Perkins – 1984-85 (First Team)
Jay Vincent – 1981-82 (First Team)
