NBA 6-Year Veteran Signs In South Korea

After a year out of the NBA, former Portland Trail Blazer, Toronto Raptor and Brooklyn Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has taken his talents to South Korea.

Hollis-Jefferson will earn $450,000 with KCC Egis, with bonuses for making the playoffs. 

The 6'6" forward last played in the NBA in the 2020-21 season for just 11 games with the Portland Trail Blazers. His best season was the 2017-18 season with the Nets, when he averaged 13.9 points and 6.8 rebounds in 28 minutes per game as a starter. 

He brings a tenacious intensity to the floor, and can pass the ball, though sometimes has trouble putting the biscuit in the basket, even at close range.  

RHJ is continuing his globetrotting tour in South Korea, following stop in Turkey and Puerto Rico last season. 

The 27-year-old was a first-round pick of the Trail Blazers (23rd overall) in 2015.
