The 25-year-old swingman had been playing for New York’s G League affiliate since agreeing to a two-way deal in late November. He’s averaging 20.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 20 games with Westchester.
Jeffries has been trying to find a regular role in the NBA since going undrafted out of Tulsa in 2019. He has appeared in 47 total games with the Kings, Rockets and Grizzlies and has spent time with the Magic, Spurs and Hawks as well. He was in training camp with the Knicks last fall, but was waived before the start of the regular season.
As a fourth-year player, Jeffries will earn $109,318 during his 10-day deal. He will be eligible to sign another one when it ends on March 15.
The Knicks had two roster openings following the expiration of Trevor Keels‘ 10-day deal on Saturday night, so they didn’t need to make another move before signing Jeffries.
