Richard Jefferson SF DAL 2 Months

Mavericks sign F Richard Jefferson.

It's just a one-year, $1.4 million deal and won't affect their cap. Jefferson was a liability for the Jazz last season. Among small forwards playing in more than 15 games and 15 minutes per game, he ranked dead last in defensive efficiency. He won't be able to match his 27 minutes per game from last season.

Richard Jefferson is finalizing a one-year contract with the Mavericks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Mavericks are still waiting to see whether Houston will match Chandler Parson's offer sheet, but either way Jefferson projects as a backup SF in Dallas. The 34-year-old has prolonged his career with proficient outside shooting (40.9 percent from deep last year) and he'll serve as a specialist off the Mavs' bench.

Richard Jefferson will come off the bench against the Blazers on Friday.

He's arguably been the worst defensive small forward in the NBA this season and the Jazz will need all the help they can get against the Blazers. Jefferson can be cut in all leagues.

Richard Jefferson hit 6-of-17 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, one rebound and one assist in Tuesday's loss.

RJ had scored a total of nine points over his previous two games and while he's capable of breaking loose at any time, he's far from reliable.

Richard Jefferson played 30 minutes vs. the Thunder on Sunday with 17 points, two boards and three 3-pointers.

He averaged 34.5 minutes per game in the four outings without Alec Burks and was still able to get some nice run with Burks only at 21 minutes today. Jefferson will likely see his numbers take a hit and won't be a reliable option in an upcoming three-game week.

Richard Jefferson hit 4-of-6 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, four rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's loss.

Jefferson is officially hot, scoring 21, 12 and 15 points with nine 3-pointers in his last three games. He tends to disappear just as quickly as he arrives these days, but his three-game sample looks good on paper. Give him a look if you need a warm body in a deeper league.

Richard Jefferson hit three 3-point shots and finished with 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting, two rebounds and a steal in Monday's loss to the Pistons.

Jefferson hit five threes on Saturday and it makes sense that he continues to hit from deep while Alec Burks is out. Give him a look if you need help in that category.

Richard Jefferson scored 21 points vs. the Magic on Saturday with three boards, two assists, two steals and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

It's his second-highest scoring output all year and he picked up some minutes from Alec Burks (ankle) not playing. Jefferson has gone on runs before and he might be worth a look for owners looking for a boost on Monday vs. the Pistons. Burks was in a walking boot for tonight's game.

The Pacers' defense, combined with foul trouble, limited Jazz veteran Richard Jefferson to just two points in 20 minutes on Sunday.

He committed five fouls and turned the ball over three times, without any assists, steals or blocks. He's provided a steady trickle of points, 3s, rebounds and occasional steals this season, enough for borderline value in 14-team leagues, but nights like this make it hard to justify owning him over another flavor-of-the-week free agent.

Richard Jefferson played 28 minutes for eight points, two boards, one assist and two 3-pointers against the Nets on Wednesday.

He had a stomach bug and could not finish practice on Tuesday. Jefferson is one of the worst starting small forwards in the NBA based on his defensive stats and aging frame, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues.
