A pair of former Hoosiers now know where they will be playing in the upcoming 2019-20 season.
Former All-Big Ten guard Yogi Ferrell recently had the second year of his contract with the Sacramento Kings guaranteed. The Kings had until the fourth to waive his contract or it would be guaranteed for the upcoming season. Instead of waving Ferrell they decided to part ways with reserve guard Frank Mason, leaving the backup spot for Ferrell.
Ferrell averaged a career low 5.9 points per game in a reserve role in 2018-19 with the Kings. His playing time could once again be limited this winter with the Kings adding Cory Joseph to a three year, $37 million contract.
Another Hoosier recently secured a spot on a roster for the upcoming season with Noah Vonleh signing a one year deal with Minnesota.

Vonleh’s deal with the TImberwolves is only costing the team $2 million, with the addition of Vonleh and Jordan Bell this offseason likely being used to add some depth to a thin frontcourt. Vonleh averaged 8.4 points and 7.8 rebounds per game last year with the Knicks and has bounced around the league since entering back in 2014, with the Timberwolves set to be the fifth team he’s played on in six seasons.
