as mentioned in Rick Carlisle on Yogi Ferrell being named Western Conference Rookie of the Month.
However, after one of the more electric months from a rookie in recent memory, Ferrell is now the NBA’s Western Conference Rookie of the Month.
Just over one month ago, Yogi Ferrell was spending his nights in the D-League.

In the span of the month, Ferrell went from one ten-day contract to a two-year deal to the starting point guard, and for good reason.

Ferrell is the first Maverick rookie to win the honor since Devin Harris in November, 2004.
And he at least got some payback Thursday when he was named by the NBA as the Western Conference rookie of the month for February.
The Maverick sensation averaged 12 points, 4.7 assists and 31 minutes per game, all highs for rookies in the West in the month.
