QUICK TIP:  Spherify modifier in Maya

Switch to Animation tab (press F2) and with active vertex selection go to
Create Deformers>Sculpt Deformer.

More examples of using sculpt deformer

Depending from the scale and position of the sphere gizmo you will gett different results. So for example if I move the sphere below by selection it will force all vertices to snap to surface creating a ball like shape or if apllied on a object you can force its shape into a sphere. Works well with any amount division , i suggest if your vertices  are unevenly distributed use average vertices fuction to get more pleasing results.
