B. Richard Jefferson hardly played for the Nuggets this year.  In signing Jefferson the Nuggets never intended to make him a rotation player.  His purpose was leadership and mentoring and he filled that role well.  The improvement in Murray, Jokic and Harris can be indirectly attributed to the presence of Jefferson.  Watching him on the bench, he was often in conversation with one of the Nuggets young stars. He did not have enough statistically to grade his on-court performance but he gets a grade for leadership.. SF. Denver Nuggets. RICHARD JEFFERSON
