Cory Jefferson RumorsAll NBA Players
Tom Lorenzo: Here is the #Nets 19-man Summer League roster: Darius Adams, Cliff Alexander, Khem Birch, Ryan Boatright, Markel Brown, Earl Clark, Deshawn Delaney, Josh Gasser, Steven Gray, Austin Hollins, Rondae Hollins-Jefferson, Cory Jefferson, Akil Mitchell, JayVaughn Pinkston, Juvonte Reddic, Jonathon Simmons, Xavier Thames, Juan Pablo Vaulet, Ben Vozzola.
Nets Daily: Each team has its own mock draft suited to its needs, whether by position or emphasis on character traits or other biases. In the past and presumably this year #Nets put emphasis on maturity, (seniors/juniors) and big programs. Told last year they had Markel Brown at 22, Xavier Thames at 31, Cory Jefferson at 36. They went 44, 59 and 60. Cost Nets $1.9m.
Lionel Hollins on what he saw in Markel Brown and when he saw it… “He brought a certain quickness and athleticism that we didnt have on the team, so you noticed it at practice, but consistency is something young players have to develop and he and Cory Jefferson are probably our two most athletic kids on the court. Just before we got to the point (where he started), Markel was really, really consistent every day at practice. Every time I watched him, he was showing something that said, ‘I need a chance.’
The Brooklyn Nets recalled guard Markel Brown and forward Cory Jefferson from the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League, General Manager Billy King announced today.
A league source said the team has no immediate plans to fill its currently open 15th and final roster spot in the wake of Davies being released. Like Morris, Jerome Jordan and rookie Cory Jefferson — both of whom had partial guarantees — became fully guaranteed by remaining on the roster.
Nets Daily: Brandon Davis, waived today, had no guarantee. Neither does @Darius Morris $75K guaranteed to @CoryJay34 $100K for @jerome_jordan They stay
It is “unlikely” they waive anyone else, a team source told The Brooklyn Game. The Nets have three more non-guaranteed players on their roster — guard Darius Morris, center Jerome Jordan, and rookie forward Cory Jefferson. Jefferson is currently in the D-League with the Maine Red Claws, and Morris & Jordan provide much-needed depth at the point guard and center positions, where the Nets have dealt with injuries throughout the season.
The Nets announced Thursday morning that they have assigned rookies Markel Brown and Cory Jefferson to the D-League’s Maine Red Claws.. Here is an excerpt from the press release. The Brooklyn Nets have assigned Markel Brown and Cory Jefferson to the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League, pursuant to the flexible assignment rule, General Manager Billy King announced today. The flexible assignment rule was used because the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the Nets’ D-League affiliate, had four players on assignment at the time the Nets initiated Brown and Jefferson’s assignments to the D-League.
Nets Daily: In two weeks, #Nets have to decide whether to keep @Darius Morris @jerome_jordan @CoryJay34 and Brandon Davies. Jan 10 is guarantee day
Not long after, he tells Mazzeo, he had to decide on a number. He chose No. 21, Isaiah Austin’s number at Baylor. “I didn’t tell him,” said Cory Jefferson, who wore No. 34 in college. “I just did it. He liked it, just being able to see No. 21 still out there. Like I said, it means a lot more to me now.” Wednesday night, the Celtics honored Isaiah Austin for his courage and presented him with a framed No. 21 jersey. And Jefferson playing his first NBA game scored eight points and grabbed two rebounds in nine minutes with Austin watching.
The Brooklyn Nets have signed guard Markel Brown and forward Cory Jefferson to multi-year contracts, General Manager Billy King announced today. Per team policy, terms of the agreements were not disclosed. Brown, the 44th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, was acquired from the Minnesota Timberwolves on draft night in exchange for cash considerations. He recently completed his senior season at Oklahoma State, averaging 17.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 35.3 minutes per game and earning All-Big 12 Second Team honors for the second consecutive season. During his junior season, Brown averaged 15.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 34.1 minutes per game.
Now that his teammate’s playing days are over, Cory Jefferson wants to honor Isaiah Austin by wearing his jersey number, No. 21, with the Nets. “That was big for me,” Jefferson said. “Just knowing the bond that we built, we got really close over the two years that he was there at Baylor that we played together.”
Nets Daily: Today in summer league game, #Nets Cory Jefferson, Isaiah Austin’s Baylor teammate, will wear No. 21, Austin’s number, to honor him.
It sounds like the old post-draft line, “we were stunned to see he was still available,” but multiple sources tell NetsDaily that Markel Brown, taken by Brooklyn at No. 44 with the Minnesota pick, was No. 22 on the Nets internal mock draft. Moreover, say the same sources, the Nets mock had Xavier Thames going at the first pick in the second round, at No. 31, and Cory Jefferson, five picks later at No. 36. They, of course, were the final picks in the second round.
The Sixers weren’t done wheeling and dealing after the 2014 NBA Draft had closed Thursday night. The team acquired the rights to 58th overall pick Jordan McRae and the 60th overall pick, Cory Jefferson from the San Antonio Spurs. The Sixers then traded the rights to Jefferson to the Brooklyn Nets. In exchange for the Spurs’ picks, the Sixers sent the 54th overall pick to the reigning NBA champions, which was Serbian forward Nemanja Dangubic.
The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they have selected Kyle Anderson with the 30th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Additionally, the Spurs acquired Nemanja Dangubic from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the 58th and 60th overall picks in this year’s draft.
#Nets officially announce two workouts this week on Tuesday and Wednesday.
