Rondae Hollis-Jefferson — a member of the NBA’s All-Hyphen Team (which, to be clear, is a team that does not officially exist) — did not have a qualifying offer extended to him by the Brooklyn Nets, making him an unrestricted free agent when the free agency window opens on June 30.

Hollis-Jefferson spent four seasons with the Nets, helping turn the team from a laughingstock to a respected Eastern Conference Playoff team with big-name free agent aspirations.

Sadly, in order to keep those aspirations realistic, Hollis-Jefferson was a casualty. By waiving RHJ, the Nets opened up nearly $4 million more in cap space, giving them a whopping total of $46 million this offseason with which to attract Kyrie Irving and, potentially, Kevin Durant.

However, the loss of Holli-Jefferson, who played well in 2017-18 when he got more minutes, will sting for devoted Nets fans. Though Brooklyn could still hypothetically sign RHJ in free agency, a recent Tweet from the four-year veteran made it seem as if he and the team had parted ways for good.

Hollis-Jefferson is known for his tenacious defensive effort and ability to literally switch across five positions.

Though a non-shooter on offense (career 22.3 percent from deep per Basketball Reference), RHJ put up 13.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game in the 2017-18 season before seeing his minutes cut into by productive rookie Rodions Kurucs and veteran big Ed Davis this 2018-19 campaign.
