Ferrell was assigned Wednesday to the D-League's Long Island Nets.

Ferrell has averaged 16.4 minutes per game so far this season for the Nets, but the coaching staff wants to get him some extra in-game reps, so he'll head to Long Island of the D-League. That said, he'll likely be recalled in time for Thursday's matchup with the Bucks, where he'll act as additional depth in the backcourt behind the likes of Isaiah Whitehead, Sean Kilpatrick and Randy Foye.
