Richard Jefferson Officially Signs on with Cleveland Cavaliers

Wingman, veteran player and free agent Richard Jefferson has finally been reeled in by the Cleveland Cavaliers who signed him on for a minimum of one year.

In his 14 years of NBA career, Jefferson has played for seven teams -Dallas, Milwaukee, San Antonio, Golden State, Utah and New Jersey (now Brooklyn) in over 1,008 games. His most recent stint was with the Dallas Mavericks where he made an average of 16.8 minutes, 5.8 points, and 2.5 rebounds per game in 74 games in the 2014-15 season. Jefferson’s career average is 13.9 points and 4.3 rebounds with 38 percent long distance shots.

His speciality lies in shooting, especially 3-pointers.  Jefferson’s career includes two NBA Finals teams (2002 and 2003 with the Nets) and in 105 playoff games. He will likely back up LeBron James in the Cavaliers 2015-16 season team.

Though the deal was in the works earlier, it was only made official recently and announced via a press release yesterday because Jefferson was initially supposed to remain with the Mavericks but decided on a last minute change to pursue another NBA finals dream.
