Cory Jefferson 's 10-day contract with the Phoenix Suns recently expired, making him a free agent.
The Suns replaced Jefferson's spot on the roster with Orlando Johnson, who inked a 10-day contract with the club on Feb. 5. Jefferson has appeared in just eight games with the Suns over two different stints with the team this season, posting averages of 2.8 points and two rebounds in 6.3 minutes.

The Suns had an open spot available on their roster and have three forwards (Markieff Morris, Jon Leuer, and Mirza Teletovic) dealing with injuries, so it makes sense for them to bring Jefferson in as emergency depth. The 25-year-old previously appeared in six games with the Suns and averaged two points and 1.7 boards over 4.7 minutes per contest before he was waived two weeks ago.
