    The Raptors have announced the signing of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.

    Hollis-Jefferson had a tough season in Brooklyn, suffering an offseason adductor strain and then falling out of the rotation when he was ready to play. The Raptors will take a one-year flier on a player that can capably defend multiple positions while bringing great energy, and he'll fit in with the team's defensive identity. RHJ is only a year removed from being a top-100 fantasy player but it's unlikely that he holds standard-league value in a reserve role for Toronto. Deep-league managers can consider Hollis-Jefferson a late-round flier.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has agreed to a one-year deal with the Raptors, per Shams Charania.

    It's a nice low-risk bet for the Raptors to take, as Hollis-Jefferson fell out of favor in Brooklyn after an offseason adductor strain had him playing catch-up on a team with a very deep rotation. He's a multi-positional defender up front and will help absorb forward minutes in the second unit. There should be deep-league fantasy appeal here given the Raptors' current depth chart and their need to find potential long-term answers as their core ages. RHJ was a top-100 option in 2017-18, however, so keep an eye on how the rotation shakes out.

    Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that the Wolves, Rockets and Suns are among the teams that are interested in Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.

    Hollis-Jefferson had a brutal season, injuring his groin in a charity game last summer and never catching up. He fell out of the rotation at times, just one year after emerging as a potential long-term solution at power forward. RHJ is a worthwhile reclamation project for any team and is not that far removed from top-100 fantasy output. He's not someone to forget on draft day, depending on where he lands.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will become an UFA this summer as the Brooklyn Nets declined to make a qualifying offer.

    It didn't seem like RHJ was a part of the Nets long-term plans for a while now, as shown by the multiple DNP-CD's he received along the course of the season. He's still only 24 years old and could serve as a valuable bench piece on a championship caliber team, it's just unlikely to be the Nets. RHJ finished as the 329th-ranked player in fantasy this season while playing 20.9 minutes on a Nets team that valued its youth. If he's welcomed into the right situation then his value could rise but until then he shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson shot 9-for-13 from the floor for 21 points with two rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes during a Game 5 loss to the Sixers on Tuesday.

    RHJ came on strong in this series, but much of it was in garbage time. The Nets were down 29 at the half, so RHJ did most of his damage in the second half when the starters were out of the game. He could be in a different uniform this offseason, so be on the look out for value changes if the right situation presents itself.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson got some minutes in Monday's loss, putting up 15 points (5-of-10 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) in 19 minutes.

    This one was out of reach before the end of the third quarter, so some of RHJ's minutes were in garbage time. However, he did have some effective minutes when it still mattered including a shift trying to guard Boban Marjanovic. His minutes could continue to fluctuate throughout the series.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson double-doubled with 10 points and 12 rebounds in 26 minutes in the Nets' regular season finale vs. the Heat on Wednesday.

    It was a disappointing season for RHJ, as his minutes per game dropped from 28.2 to 20.8, which pushed him outside the top-300 players. Hollis-Jefferson could be looking at a change of scenery this summer, so keep him in mind in case the 24-year-old lands in a better situation.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson got the call on Thursday night and responded with 19 points (7-of-14 FG), 10 rebounds and a steal in 28 minutes off the bench against the Sixers.

    Jarrett Allen logged nine minutes and didn't play in the second half as he was no match for Philly's centers, so Kenny Atkinson turned to Hollis-Jefferson to add some strength and athleticism into the mix. Credit RHJ for staying ready, as while he's only played in two of the last five, he turned in big performances in each of those games — the first being Brooklyn's huge comeback win over the Kings. It's a nice reminder of what Hollis-Jefferson can do, so even though he's completely buried this year he might be an end-of-draft flier if he can enter next season healthy. An adductor strain sustained in the summer kept his current campaign from ever getting off the ground.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson hit the game-winner vs. the Kings on Tuesday night after having his best game this month with 14 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 17 minutes on 6-of-7 from the field.

    The Nets just have too many better options than Hollis-Jefferson to allow him to regain much fantasy value. He can remain safely on the wire in standard leagues.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson played 16 minutes in Wednesday's home loss, putting up eight points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal.

    Hollis-Jefferson was out of the rotation for the last two games and it's fair to wonder how much this game hitting garbage time affected his run tonight. It's at least a step forward, but RHJ isn't on the board until he cements himself as a rotation player again.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was a DNP-CD in Saturday's win over the Hornets.

    Hollis-Jefferson was a top-100 fantasy player last season, but a summer groin injury put him behind the eight ball to begin the year and he just hasn't been able to gain any traction since. Maybe he'll rebound next year, but we've seen all we need to for this current campaign. Only an injury higher up the depth chart will save RHJ right now.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson started for Rodions Kurucs (right elbow sprain) and scored 17 points with five rebounds on 7-of-10 shooting in 29 minutes in a win over the Cavs on Wednesday.

    RHJ is having a disappointing season, and now that he is stuck in a bench role he is not going to improve much on his top-320 value. He scored 12 points in the fourth quarter, which is the most points he has scored in a quarter this season and the most points he has scored in a fourth quarter in his career.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will start on Wednesday night against the Cavs.

    Hollis-Jefferson is taking the place of Rodions Kurucs (right elbow sprain). It's been a disappointing season so far but RHJ does have top-100 upside buried somewhere in there. The Brooklyn rotation is crowded enough to make us think that he won't surface on the standard-league radar, but it's not impossible.
