Cory Jefferson is known by many as the guy who shot an air ball on a three-point attempt against the Bulls, but the rookie out of Baylor has serious potential and he has shown it. Jefferson hasn’t played a lot of minutes but his best NBA game so far came against the Charlotte Hornets. Jefferson scored 1 points in 23 minutes and he went 5-5 from the field. I don’t expect Jefferson to be a significant part of the rotation this season, but his future is certainly bright.
