Blazers Sign Rondae Hollis-Jefferson To 10-Day Deal

APRIL 8: The Blazers have officially signed Hollis-Jefferson, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who tweets that it’s a 10-day contract. The forward will earn $128,963 on the deal.

APRIL 2: The Trail Blazers plan to sign forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets. Hollis-Jefferson was on the Timberwolves’ training camp roster but was waived in December.

The Trail Blazers had two openings on their 15-man roster and needed to sign at least one player under NBA requirements. Portland was seeking another wing or guard to fill a roster spot.

The Blazers dropped to 13 players on the 15-man roster in the 2-for-1 trade with the Raptors that brought Norman Powell to Portland.

Hollis-Jefferson, 26, played for the Raptors last season, providing energy and defense off the bench. He averaged 7.0 PPG and 4.7 RPG in 60 games (18.7 MPG) for Toronto.

The veteran forward has averaged 9.3 PPG, 5.6 RPG and 1.9 APG in 294 career NBA games. He played his first four seasons with Brooklyn.

    Unbelievable that it took this long for him to get signed. Portland has significantly overhauled their wing issues from previous years, and now have very strong depth. Good job by them. Have to question several teams

    RHJ has good stats in limited playoff time; has done okay overall; he does not maximize himself but his teams have done well. He must have an off-court issue but he will be taking Melo’s minutes, so a boy scout badge for Olshey’s belt anyway.

    I just realized Portland essentially traded Trent and Hood for Powell and RHJ…amazing
