Nuggets' Richard Jefferson: Won't be in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Michael Malone said Thursday that Jefferson won't start the season in the Nuggets' rotation, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

With Jefferson's late arrival to the team, it's not much of a surprise that he'll have to earn his way into Malone's rotation, especially considering that the 37-year-old is a veteran among a very young roster. Even if Jefferson does ultimately crack the team's rotation, he's not expected to play much of a role this season and will have very limited fantasy value.

Nuggets' Richard Jefferson: Unlikely to be available for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson is unlikely to be available for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Jazz, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

After inking a contract with the Nuggets just a day ago, it doesn't appear that Jefferson will have enough time to get acclimated with his new team and will instead, sit out the opener. Look for official confirmation on that following Wednesday's morning shootaround, but it seems more likely that Jefferson will make his debut on Saturday against the Kings. That being said, Jefferson likely won't carry much fantasy value even when he's available due to a relatively deep roster at forward in Denver.

Nuggets' Richard Jefferson: Expected to sign with Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nuggets are expected to sign Jefferson to a one-year, $2.3 million contact prior to their season opener Wednesday against the Jazz, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Jefferson opened training camp with the Cavaliers, with whom he spent the previous two seasons. However, when the team needed to open up roster room in advance of the regular season, Jefferson was traded to the Hawks and subsequently waived. The veteran forward drew interest from a number of teams as a depth option and decided to latch on with a Nuggets squad that boasts a deep crew of forwards. Jefferson is unlikely to hold any real fantasy value, as he'll likely struggle to reach the 20.4 minutes per game he received with the Cavaliers in 2016-17 with the likes of Will Barton, Wilson Chandler, and Juancho Hernangomez vying for playing time on the wing.

Hawks' Richard Jefferson: Traded to Atlanta, waived
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson, along with Kay Felder and cash, has been traded to the Hawks in exchange for European draft rights, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The team plans to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN him.

The Cavaliers needed to get their NBA roster down to 15 players before the regular season opener and trading Jefferson aids in that process. It's unclear at the moment where Jefferson will finally land, though he'll seemingly want to play on a competitive roster.

Cavaliers' Richard Jefferson: Says he'll return to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson will return to the Cavaliers next season, Cleveland.com reports.

On a recent episode of the "Road Trippin'" podcast, which is hosted by Jefferson and Channing Frye, the 37-year-old confirmed that he will return to the Cavs next season after mulling retirement. Jefferson, who nearly retired last summer, is due to make $2.5 million next season, in what could very well be his final go-round in the NBA. In 2016-17, Jefferson saw action in 79 contests and averaged 5.7 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist in just over 20 minutes per game.
