Rondae Hollis-Jefferson shares clip of him knocking down 10 straight 3 pointers
Because the Nets are likely to attract some of the biggest names in the game and reserve their cap space for such elite talent, role players like Rondae Hollis-Jefferson are likely to be the odd men out.
Hollis-Jefferson played 59 games for the Nets this past season (starting in 21 of those contests), averaging 8.9 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. This was a marked decrease from his 2017-18 numbers, when he started in 59 of 68 games and averaged close to 14 points and seven rebounds.
After watching his role diminish substantially, Hollis-Jefferson’s value is a relative unknown as he prepares for the opening of free agency tomorrow.
One drawback to Hollis-Jefferson’s game has been his inability to stretch the floor at the three spot, shooting just over 22 percent from beyond the arc in his career. However, he recently shared a clip of a workout where he knocked down 10 straight triples:

Of course, any player hoping to garner a nice payday in free agency is going to do anything that they can to increase their stock. But should Hollis-Jefferson arm himself with a decent jumper, he could become one of the more valuable wingmen in the league.
He is already regarded as a versatile and rangy defender, and he has proven that he can score and rebound as well. Expanding his range could be the crucial factor in whether or not Hollis-Jefferson can take the next step in the league.
