LOS ANGELES - Another piece in the showtime puzzle is added as Los Angeles reunites with its former wing Dejuan Jefferies ($1.8M/year for 2 Years + Team Option). The 2x Dunk Champ once played for the Fireballs where he averaged 9.8 PPG and 2 RPG in 22 games after he was traded to LA. However he didn't resigned with the Fireballs and decided to play for Philadelphia where he was subpar at best.
Now, the Los Angeles Fireballs and its high octane offense will suit Dejuan Jefferies very well as he can use his athlecism more coming off the bench. He will be one of the first wings to come off the bench to bring energy for the Fireballs. Jefferies is the 2nd player signed for LA this FA, high profile PF Drayton Banks earlier inks a max contract.
