The Portland Trail Blazers signed Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to a 10-day contract, the team announced Thursday.

Hollis-Jefferson, 26, spent the 2019-20 season playing 60 games with the Toronto Raptors (six starts), putting up 7.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.

The free agent forward signed Dec. 3, 2020, with the Minnesota Timberwolves but was waived Dec. 19.

Hollis-Jefferson has averaged 9.3 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.94 and 22.6 minutes in 294 career games (153 starts) with the Brooklyn Nets and Toronto.

He played in college for the University of Arizona for two years and was the Trail Blazers’ first-round pick (No. 23 overall) in the 2015 NBA Draft. Portland traded him to Brooklyn in a draft-night trade.
