MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -
Player Profile: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
6-foot-7, 211 pounds
Age: 20 (Sophomore) Draft Range (Compilation of 6 Draft Express, ESPN, CBSSports, and NBADraftNet mock drafts):High: 20
Mock Drafts Projecting to Grizzlies: 0/6 Take him: Extremely athletic prospect who plays great defense and is terrific in transition. Can draw fouls with his body control. Is quick and athletic enough to defend multiple positions at a high level.
Don't take him: Grizzlies need a three-point shooter, and RHJ is not a three shooter. Shot only 8-39 (20%) from three in college career. Can't really create his own shot, which is something the team would need from the 3 position. Notes: Hollis-Jefferson worked out with the Grizzlies. Made first team All-Pac 12, and first team all defensive Pac-12. Strong rebounder, averaging nearly seven per game as a sophomore. All six draft projections have Hollis-Jefferson drafted before the Grizzlies pick at 25.
