Since joining the team, Hollis Jefferson has provided another defensive-minded body for the Trail Blazers while averaging 3.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists on the offensive side of the ball.
Over his career, Hollis-Jefferson has averaged 9.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.9 steals during stints with the Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors.
Portland initially took Hollis-Jefferson with the No. 23 pick in the 2015 draft before trading him and Steve Blake to the Nets for Mason Plumlee and the rights to Pat Connaughton.
A team can sign a player to two 10-day contracts in one season. After the second 10-day contract, the team can only retain the player by signing him for the remainder of the season.
