Another new face has joined the Rockets.
Jeffries vacates the roster spot that Ben McLemore held until Saturday, when the team opted to part ways with him.
Jeffries has 31 games of NBA experience over the past two seasons with the Kings after going undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft.
At 6’5”, Jeffries is seen as a player who can guard multiple positions, but lacks much shooting range. He’s shooting just 32.1% from beyond the three-point line this season.
However, in the run he’s gotten this season with the Kings, he has shown promise.
He dropped a career-high 19 points in February against the Milwaukee Bucks.
As with many of the Rockets recent moves, this appears to be a low-risk, high-reward transaction. He signed a contract in November for two years, $3 million, so the team will have the rest of the season and next to evaluate his worth and see if he can stick with the team moving forward.
