Timberwolves Sign Rondae Hollis-Jefferson

DECEMBER 3: The Timberwolves have officially signed Hollis-Jefferson, the team announced today in a press release.

NOVEMBER 30: The Timberwolves have reached an agreement with free agent forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports tweets.

It’s a non-guaranteed, training-camp deal for one season, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic tweets.

He played for the Raptors last season, appearing in 60 games. He averaged 7.0 PPG, 4.7 RPG and 1.8 APG in 18.7 MPG. He also saw action in five playoff games but averaged just 7.8 MPG in those appearances.

Hollis-Jefferson, 25, played his first four seasons with the Nets. He could add defensive versatility to Minnesota if he makes the roster.

    This is a good pick up. He’ll provide much needed forward depth and also much needed veteran leadership alongside Rubio and Davis.

    I like the signing a lot. Hoping to see a Nowell trade for a future 2nd rounder. Then sign JMac. We need a third PG and I don’t see Nowell ever realistically getting minutes here. Deserves to develop somewhere else.

    I can see RHJ getting lots of minutes at PF and potentially even being a starter.

    Just look at his numbers from the Nets in 2017.
    He averaged 28 minutes, 14-7-2.5. Plus he’s a excellent defender. With KAT spacing the floor at centre it could allow RHJ to play the 4 and not be a complete liability on that end.

      RHJ is on a training camp deal, so he has an uphill battle just to make the team, yet alone get a lot of minutes. Of course the other forwards on their roster aren’t that great so he might have a decent chance of sticking.

    Was hoping kings would get Rondae. I think he is really underrated.

    I dont get how we’re seeing multiple players with legit value ending up with camp deals or potentially 2 way deals…

    Teams just missing out on useful pieces, in my opinion, and several teams could have used RHJ. He should be helpful where they lost James Johnson/Covington, assuming he makes the roster
