The Nets are back in the mix and will look to take another big leap this summer

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will miss Friday's preseason finale with a sore groin.
This news comes a day after Nick Nurse blasted the team's new acquisitions for not playing hard enough, so with RHJ missing his last chance to make an impression it's possible that he starts the year out of the rotation. There's no reason to target Hollis-Jefferson in the vast majority of formats, at least when the Raps are healthy.

Raptors' head coach Nick Nurse heavily criticized Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Stanley Johnson and other new additions for not playing hard enough and not playing with the level of defense that is expected.
Nurse was not subtle in his criticism of the new additions the roster. Perhaps this is "coach speak" so that the new guys play harder to start the season. It would be safe to assume that the rotation will be dominated by the players that were on the championship roster from a year ago.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson took an elbow to the face on Sunday but has since returned to the game.
Good to see RHJ dodge a concussion after injuries prevented his last season from getting started properly. He's only a deep-league target on a deep Raptors squad.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Raptors.
Hollis-Jefferson's deal was originally reported as a minimum contract however it is now a $2.5 million contract which comes out of the Raptors' non-taxpayer mid-level. He will likely play some minutes behind Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka. He is capable of defending multiple positions and might be able to provide some deep-league value in rebounds, steals and blocks.

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.
