The Toronto Raptors signed forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to a one-year deal on Thursday.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Hollis-Jefferson, 24, spent his first four NBA seasons with the Brooklyn Nets, averaging 8.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 20.9 minutes per game in the 2018-19 while coming mostly off the bench.

The forward became an unrestricted free agent after the Nets decided to not extend him a qualifying offer last month in order to clear space for the signing of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.

Hollis-Jefferson was a first-round selection, 23rd overall, with the Portland Trail Blazers in 2015, but was promptly traded to Brooklyn, along with Steve Blake, for Mason Plumlee and Pat Connaughton.
