Analysis: Jefferson, who came off the bench in Dallas last season, will receive the veteran's minimum salary, said the person who spoke Tuesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contract has not been signed. The 35-year-old Jefferson averaged 5.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 17 minutes per game for the Mavericks. He shot a team-leading 43 percent from 3-point range. Jefferson was the No. 13 overall pick in the 2001 draft by Houston.

Analysis: He played more than 30 minutes for the first time this season, and converted five of eight field goals. With his 4.6 points per game average, however, he has very little fantasy value.

Analysis: Terms of the contract announced Monday weren't released, but it is reportedly a one-year deal for the veteran minimum of $1.4 million. Jefferson started 78 games for Utah last year but figures to be used as a 3-point threat coming off the bench. That was the role last season for Carter, who signed with Memphis as a free agent. The 34-year-old Jefferson has averaged 14.5 points and 4.5 rebounds over his 13-year career.
