Oct. 16 7:06 PM PT8:06 PM MT9:06 PM CT10:06 PM ET2:06 GMT10:06 7:06 PM MST9:06 PM EST6:06 UAE (+1)04:0622:06 ET9:06 PM CTNaN:� - Jefferson has agreed to a one-year contract with the Nuggets for the veteran minimum salary of $2.3 million.
Analysis: The move comes three days after the Cavaliers traded Jefferson to the Hawks, who promptly waived the 37-year-old small forward. Jefferson, who averaged 5.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 79 games with Cleveland last season, probably doesn't have a whole lot left in the tank, but should provided the Nuggets with a needed veteran presence.

The Hawks reportedly will waive both players.
Analysis: The 37-year-old Jefferson averaged 5.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 79 games last season.
July 5 2:40 PM PT3:40 PM MT4:40 PM CT5:40 PM ET21:40 GMT5:40 2:40 PM MST4:40 PM EST1:40 UAE (+1)23:4017:40 ET4:40 PM CTNaN:� - Jefferson isn't messing with any retirement talk this summer. After saying he would stop playing after the Cavaliers won the NBA title in 2016 and changing his mind, Jefferson said Wednesday that he will be back with Cleveland next season - his 17th as a pro.
Analysis: The 37-year-old, who had contemplated quitting, has one guaranteed season left on his contract worth $2.5 million. He averaged 5.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 79 games for the Cavs, serving mostly as a backup for LeBron James. He provided Cleveland with a big lift off the bench during the NBA Finals, when he was asked to guard Golden State's Kevin Durant and was perhaps the Cavs' most productive reserve.
