Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Expected To Sign Overseas

Free agent forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is expected to sign with Turkish club Besiktas, according to Donatas Urbonas of BasketNews.Rondae Hollis-Jefferson

Hollis-Jefferson, 26, is 6-foot-6 and has garnered only minimal interest from NBA teams as an unrestricted free agent. He appeared in just 11 games with the Trail Blazers last season.

Prior to that, he had some effective runs as a combo forward with the Raptors and Nets. He was drafted by Brooklyn with the No. 23 overall pick in 2015.

His best season came in 2017-18, when he averaged 13.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

As Rory Maher of Hoops Rumors wrote, “It’s a little surprising that a player who’s had a solid track record and is still just 26 years old couldn’t find another NBA home this summer. However, the league has trended away from players similar to Hollis-Jefferson in recent years, as his unique skill set isn’t as valued without a reliable outside shot or the size to match up against true centers.”
