  • Jefferson re-signed with the Cavaliers on Wednesday, Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com reports. Originally after winning his first NBA title back in June, the 36-year-old announced he would be retiring from the league after a noteworthy 15-year career. However after giving it more thought, Jefferson retracted his retirement statement and will now play at least two more seasons after inking his name to a new two-year deal on Wednesday night. The veteran forward saw an expanded role during the NBA Finals compared to a quiet season in which he averaged 5.5 points and 1.7 rebounds over 17.9 minutes per game. While he isn't likely to produce much fantasy value next season, he'll still be an intricate part of the Cavaliers' system as one of the veteran leaders.

  • Jefferson is apparently looking to play 2-to-3 more seasons in the NBA, Chris Mannix of The Vertical reports. Following the Cavaliers' Game 7 win over the Warriors, Jefferson announced his intent to retire, but he's since softened his stance considerably. The veteran turned in a strong season for the Cavaliers and certainly appeared to have plenty left in the tank, and as a result he figures to garner considerable interest as a free agent this summer. Cleveland will likely attempt to retain his services, but with the cap set to rise, Jefferson may receive offers the Cavs aren't able to match.

  • Jefferson told the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday that a decision on his retirement is "not set in stone." Shortly after the Cavaliers claimed their first NBA title Monday, Jefferson announced that he'd call it a career, but further conversations with teammate LeBron James and new Lakers head coach and former University of Arizona teammate Luke Walton convinced him to back away from that commitment. The 36-year-old is set to become a free agent on July 1, so he's in no rush to make a quick decision on his playing status. If he does ultimately decide to keep his career going, Jefferson shouldn't have much trouble landing a one-year deal, but he's unlikely to play a major role in any team's rotation after averaging 5.5 points and 1.7 rebounds over 17.9 minutes per game last season.

  • Cavaliers' Richard Jefferson: Will retire from NBA
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jefferson announced his retirement from the NBA to FOX Sports Ohio after Game 7 of the NBA Finals Sunday. It seems as though the only thing the 16-year NBA veteran needed before he could call it quits was a championship, and after the Cavaliers' Game 7 victory Sunday, Jefferson wasted no time announcing that his time in the league was done. After playing a crucial role for Cleveland down the final stretch of the 2016 playoffs, the 35-year-old leaves the NBA with career averages of 13.3 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.

  • Jefferson will come off the bench for Monday's Game 5 against the Warriors, Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area reports. After starting for the Cavaliers during an impressive Game 3 win, Jefferson remained in the starting lineup during Game 4 despite Kevin Love being available. The Cavaliers ended up taking a loss in that outing, so they'll move Jefferson back to the bench role he's accustomed to. Jefferson could see a slight decrease in minutes now that he's returned to a bench role.
