Josh Lewenberg: Hollis-Jefferson said he thought the Raptors might draft him with their 20th pick in 2015 (they took Delon Wright instead and Rondae went 23rd to Portland). He’s happy to end up in Toronto now, thinks it’s going to be a good fit, especially on the defensive end.
Reporters rushed him as he went into the Nets locker room. He cheered and rapped, “Look out Brooklyn, here I come… You can’t hide, you can’t run. I’m coming, baby!” He was great to the media and people around him. Personally, that same Arizona sophomore came into the locker room before a game in 2015. Noticing something off, Rondae asked if I was alright. He insisted to pull up a chair and talk about life – from his end to my end. He turned out to be the first real feature story I ever wrote, murmuring words that ring true for so many people facing adversity: There’s beauty in the struggle.
During the interview, Rondae became emotional. He told me about his life growing up, how he rarely got to live with his mom because she was a single mother working tireless hours through the day and night. Saying “goodbye” to her was so difficult because he really only got to live with her for a couple of years. Jumping from house to house as a kid, Rondae found guidance and strength in his grandfather.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Brooklynnnnn I Love You.. can’t believe it’s been 4 years ha.. Thank you 🙌🏽
Brian Lewis: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is OK to go for the #Nets after having to get stitched up from a head to head blow in the last game. #Celtics
Michael Scotto: Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said the season’s been a “roller coaster” with various injuries and said, “Sometimes you get faced with adversity, and it’s just God seeing how well you can bounce back and how well you can overcome it before he throws the great things at you”
Brian Lewis: #Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (left shoulder) is questionable vs. the #Knicks. Atkinson: “I think they’re doing further check-ups with him. I said it wasn’t bad, but let’s hold off and find out for sure.” #nyk
Brian Lewis: The #Nets say “no injury to report” regarding Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. That should be an encouraging sign for their #MLKDay game vs. the #Kings after he limped off tonight.
Michael Scotto: Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (adductor strain) was upgraded to PROBABLE for tomorrow’s game against the Rockets. Shabazz Napier (hamstring tightness) is QUESTIONABLE. Allen Crabbe (knee), Jared Dudley (hamstring), Caris LeVert (foot) and Dzanan Musa (shoulder) are OUT.
Michael Gallagher: Nets Injury Update: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (adductor strain) and Shabazz Napier (right hamstring tightness) are OUT for tonight’s game vs. Boston.
Brian Lewis: Allen Crabbe and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right adductor strain) are both out for the #Nets game tomorrow vs the #Pelicans.
Though Atkinson would not put any expectations on when Hollis-Jefferson might be able to return, he was optimistic. “It’s not a pull, it’s not a tear, [it’s] a strain. So that’s good news,” Atkinson said. “I can’t give you a timetable, but it’s not a huge, long process like he went through in the offseason. So I’d say the news is positive in that sense.”

The Spencer Dinwiddie $1.6M free agent hold is now replaced by a $10.6M salary in 2019-20. The Nets are still projected to have cap flexibility in July but how much will be based on the future of restricted free agents D’Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
Anthony Puccio: Jimmy Butler hits a step-back three in Rondae Hollis-Jefferson’s face with 0.4 second left to win it for Philly, 127-125. The Nets led 118-105, but Philly finished on a 22-7 run. Brooklyn is now 8-13 and have lost 3 straight games.
Michael Gallagher: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is available for tonight’s game vs. the Clippers, per Nets.
Michael Gallagher: Jarrett Allen is available and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) is out for tonight’s game at Washington, per Nets.
The Nets view LeVert and Allen as core pieces long-term. Instead of using them as trade bait, the Nets kicked the tires briefly on talks involving D’Angelo Russell, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and a salary filler for Butler that never got any traction, league sources told The Athletic.
The Brooklyn Nets will have Rondae Hollis-Jefferson back on Wednesday night when they visit the Cavaliers in Cleveland to start a two-game road swing that will have them in New Orleans on Friday before they return home to host the defending champion Golden State Warriors on Sunday. Hollis-Jefferson was out for the preseason as he worked his way back from a summer adductor strain, and last Wednesday, the night the Nets opened their season in Detroit, his son Rylen was born. “It’s a great feeling, a wonderful feeling,” said Hollis-Jefferson. “Just to see a little baby that’s yours and to just know that you have someone else to look after and care for, be there for. It’s an amazing feeling.”
Brian Lewis: The #Nets are listing Allen Crabbe (ankle) is probable for tomorrow’s home opener vs the #Knicks. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (personal) is questionable, while DeMarre Carroll (right ankle arthroscopy), Shabazz Napier (hamstring) & Alan Williams (ankle) are out. #nyk

What are the chances we get to see you play 3×3 again? Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: I don’t know when it would happen but I would love to play 3×3 again. I really enjoyed playing in that kind of basketball and I learned a lot during my time playing 3×3. The Olympics are a great window of opportunity, but as I play in the NBA, I don’t know about it. Only the future will tell, but winning a gold medal with Team USA at the Olympics would be an amazing experience!
Michael Scotto: No extensions for D’Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. When asked about the possibility of an extension earlier at practice, neither player knew today was the deadline. Both players will be eligible for restricted free agency this summer as Nets preserve 2019 cap space.
After spending more than two months recovering from a groin strain during an exhibition in China with former Net Jeremy Lin, forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson finally is on the verge of returning just in time for the regular-season opener Wednesday night in Detroit. He missed all the preseason games but has been practicing fully and you can tell he’s back to his old self by the way he hit the floor hard twice in post-practice drills on Sunday and bounced right back up. “Whenever they give a green light, we’re good,” Hollis-Jefferson said. “Because I play so energetic and all over the place, it’s definitely good to be in control, understand how you play and get that natural feel back.”
Nets Daily: In Shams Charania’s NBA Preview on the Nets, he says Brooklyn is “very active” in trade market, doesn’t think @D’Angelo Russell or @Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will be extended before season: youtu.be/epdF6xPwkdY via @YouTube
Brian Lewis: #Nets coach Kenny Atkinson confirmed that Alan Williams (ankle) and Shabazz Napier (hamstring) are both out tonight vs #Pistons. RHJ traveled but won’t play, as expected.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has not only been ruled out of Monday’s preseason tilt at Detroit, but his status is up in the air for the regular-season opener Oct. 17 against those same Pistons. Keep an eye on Brooklyn’s power forward position this preseason — rest assured the Nets will be. Their injuries and the NBA’s evolving game could force a position switch for DeMarre Carroll and some tough decisions from coach Kenny Atkinson
Michael Scotto: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Shabazz Napier won’t play Monday in Brooklyn’s preseason game against the Pistons. Kenneth Faried will play. Coach Atkinson said the Nets are “doing everything we can” to get Hollis-Jefferson ready for the season opener, but said he’s still day-to-day.
Brian Lewis: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson participated in some of the #Nets practice, but still not all. He suffered an adductor injury on Aug. 4
Word circulated around the NBA over the weekend that Brooklyn could get Butler in exchange for D’Angelo Russell (a close friend of Karl Anthony-Towns), Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and another player or two whose salaries would make the deal work under NBA rules. But there was conflicting information coming in to GetMoreSports about the accuracy of that chatter. Butler rumors have been whirling since Friday when he told management he wanted to be dealt, and teams outside of New York, Los Angeles and Miami were being cautious, knowing that Butler could end up being a one-season rental since he becomes an unrestricted free agent next summer.
Anthony Puccio: “If he [Jimmy Butler] comes, we’d love to have him. If not, we’ll just keep working and doing what we do best here.” – Rondae Hollis-Jefferson

The Nets didn’t have the results of Dzanan Musa’s MRI exam, but they were confident the first-round pick had avoided any catastrophic injury and will be ready for training camp. Considering earlier reports, it’s beyond best-case scenario. … The Musa scare came after forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson suffered a left adductor strain playing in Jeremy Lin’s charity game in Shenzhen, China, last month — but both are expected to be ready for training camp, which opens next Tuesday. “Dzanan is currently getting an MRI. It’s to be determined. It’s not as serious as was posted out there, thankfully. All is well there,” Nets general manager Sean Marks said. “Both will be cleared and integrated into training camp.”

Bobby Marks: With the Dwight Howard trade, only Allen Crabbe will have a guaranteed contract for the Nets in 2019-20. The Nets could potentially have up to $60M+ in room next summer but will be contingent on the restricted free agency of D’Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
Anthony Puccio: How great is this. @Rondae Hollis-Jefferson reveals gender of his baby on what appears to be the top of HSS Training Center
Nets point guard Jeremy Lin responded quickly on social media, tweeting that he had all of his teammates over to his home last week for a barbecue. “Hmm Jalen much respect to you but no idea where this came from lol.

Anthony Puccio: #Nets injury Report for tomorrow night’s game vs. LA Clippers: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right groin strain) and Caris LeVert (right knee sprain) are OUT.
Question: What’s the biggest thing you’ve been proud of this season? Kenny Atkinson: Seeing guys improve…individually. Joe Harris, Spencer Dinwiddie…everybody. Caris LeVert is getting better, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has made a huge jump. That’s when you get the trust is when those guys feel like [they are improving] when they come into work – that they are going to get better. I always joke with the guys if you didn’t get better today [in practice], I’ll give you a refund. Even DeMarre Carroll. He had some injuries in Toronto and it wasn’t perfect for him. He comes here [and gets better] – everyone always talks about development for the young guys – I want this to be a program where a guy comes here at 28 or 32 and is going to improve his game.

One NBA source said the Knicks inquired about the Nets’ 23-year-old defensive forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, but Brooklyn asked for a first-rounder. That the Knicks’ pick is looking more like a lottery selection makes it virtually untouchable.
