Point guards Emmanuel Mudiay and Yogi Ferrell are starting to “pick up traction” in the free agent market, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Both players could likely sign somewhere for a veteran’s minimum contract.

Mudiay, 24, averaged 7.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game in 54 regular season games last season for the Utah Jazz.

Ferrell, 27, averaged 4.4 points, 1.0 rebound and 1.4 assists per game in 50 regular season games for the Sacramento Kings.

Mudiay and Ferrell were backups and averaged 15.7 minutes and 10.6 minutes per game, respectively, career-lows for both players.
