RHJ has been improving each year taking on bigger roles. Last season, Hollis-Jefferson nearly doubled all of his stats. In his career season, Hollis-Jefferson started 59 of the 68 games he played.
In those 68 games, RHJ averaged 28.2 minutes, 13.9 points, 6.8 total rebounds, and 2.5 assists.
On the offensive end, Hollis-Jefferson is a shooting forward. He is not a stretch player due to his weak 3-point shooting, but he focuses his shooting game near the basket. RHJ is a strong mid-range shooter who shoots corner jumpers. He shot 49.1 percent from mid-range last season.
To go along with his strong mid-range shooting is his driving. A big key to RHJ’s driving success is his excellent footwork. He does a great job spacing himself driving in order to get room. If RHJ cannot get the room, he takes on traffic and does a good job finishing through traffic.
In fact, Hollis-Jefferson was arguably Brooklyn’s best driver last season.
On the defensive end, Hollis-Jefferson is a great defender. He is a steal threat using his length to poke the ball out of opponents hands. RHJ averaged 1.0 steals per game last season. He can also play good post defense.
Like Faried, he uses his body to restrict his opponents room and force up shots. While playing tight defense, RHJ does a better job avoiding foul trouble. He only averaged 2.1 fouls per game last season.
Based on his recent play, a 78 is a good rating for RHJ.
