10 Indiana Pacers who never played a single minute for the team: 6. Danny Ferry
Similar to Jerryd Bayless, Danny Ferry was a solid NBA role player for years, spending 13 years in the NBA. However, unlike Bayless, he only played for two teams, spending 10 years with the Cleveland Cavaliers and three with the San Antonio Spurs.
As for his link to the Indiana Pacers organization, Ferry’s fate was the same as Eddie Jones. He was traded to Indiana at the very end of his career but never suited up.
Ferry was traded to the Pacers in a three-team deal that also brought Scot Pollard to town. In addition, Hedo Turkoglu was traded from the Sacramento Kings to the Spurs in the deal, Brad Miller moved from Indiana to Sacramento, and Ron Mercer was dealt by the Pacers to the Spurs.
After getting traded to the Pacers, Ferry decided to retire before ever suiting up for the organization. At the time of his retirement, Ferry was 36 years old.
The long-time role player enjoyed his best seasons while a member of the Cavaliers, with his highest-scoring year coming in the 1995-96 season when he averaged 13.3 points.
But while Ferry played his best basketball in Cleveland, the peak of his career came at the very end, as he won a championship with the Spurs in the 2002-03 season and retired the following summer.
