Former Sun Cory Jefferson is expected to sign a contract with the D-League soon, tweets Chris Reichert of Upside & Motor. A league source told Reichert the move should happen in the next few days. Once Jefferson signs, he will be subject to the league’s waiver process to determine where he will play.
Jefferson was waived by Phoenix last week, just before the leaguewide contract guarantee date. The moved saved the Suns from paying the majority of his $845,059 salary.
Jefferson appeared in just six games and saw 28 minutes of playing time with Phoenix before being released. He had 12 points and 10 rebounds. The second-year player out of Baylor spent his rookie season with Brooklyn, where he averaged 3.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 50 games.
