Jefferson has found an NBA home.
Amile Jefferson went undrafted in June, but is getting a shot now.
The former Duke standout is signing a one-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to Basketball Insiders’ Michael Scotto.
The deal is partially guaranteed.

Jefferson played summer league ball with the Timberwolves this year, so apparently Minnesota liked what they saw enough to give him a longer look.
A member of Duke’s 2015 national championship team, Jefferson averaged 10.9 points and 8.4 rebounds per game last season, helping the Blue Devils capture the ACC Tournament title.
