The Mavericks rescinded their offer a couple of weeks ago, but it appears they have re-worked a deal that will please both sides.
Ferrell played 36 games with Dallas in 2016-2017, where he made a splash as an undrafted free agent before the Mavs let him go. He then played 10 games with Brooklyn before returning to Dallas last season. The IU grad has averaged 10.2 points, 2.9 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game for his career.
