Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (BKN) “RHJ” nike

BKN Small Forward: 6’7, 220 lbs; 3rd year, Arizona

NBA Role: (raw) two-way wing • UnderDOG

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is a tough, defensive-minded forward; RHJ will put the clamps on you: understands what it takes to stop opponents – could become an All-NBA defender someday; not many young players think defense first but Hollis-Jefferson is an exception; stuffs the stat sheet and does all of the little things coaches love that win ball games; very good rebounder for a swingman – avg. over 5/night as a rookie, should board even better after adding strength and receiving an uptick in playing time; form on his J is NSFW but RHJ’s confidence and comfortability are at a high level – can he learn to flourish (offensively) despite limited shooting ability?*; Kenny Atkinson’s top prospect?

*should study up on MKG if that’s the case!

Signature Move: soft cut, athletic layup
