Raptors Continue to Add, Sign Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to 1-Year Deal

With their recent additions, by no means are the Toronto Raptors going to be a strong perimeter shooting team.

In the span of 24 hours, the Raptors have essentially replaced Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green with Stanley Johnson and now Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. The team announced the signing of the former Brooklyn Nets forward this afternoon, locking up the 6-foot-7 forward with a one-year deal.

The signing comes a day after the Raptors inked Johnson to a two-year deal.

A former Arizona Wildcat, the 24-year old Hollis-Jefferson spent his entire career with the Nets, establishing himself as an excellent defender and superior rebounder for his position. The only downfall is, Hollis-Jefferson shot an abysmal 18.9-percent from long range last season. Averaging 8.9 points and 5.3 rebounds last season, he struggled with a fair bit of injuries, which saw a decrease in his output. He averaged a career best 13.8 point on a 48-percent effective field goal percentage in 2017-18.

The Raptors may be a poor three-point shooting team next season, but at the very least, they will continue to move the ball, push the tempo and defend.
