Jared Scott Carter Jeffries (born November 25, 1981) is a former American professional basketball player. He was drafted as the 11th overall pick of the 2002 NBA Draft by the Washington Wizards, and played in the NBA until 2013. At 6'11", he mainly played at the forward and center positions.

High school[edit]

Before competing in the college ranks, Jeffries attended high school at Bloomington High School North, advancing to the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) basketball finals in 2000 before losing to Marion High School, led by current Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph. In his last two years in high school, one of his teammates was future North Carolina player Sean May. Jeffries was recognized as the 2000 Indiana Mr. Basketball.

College (Indiana)[edit]

Jeffries played basketball for the Indiana University Hoosiers, where he played for two years before forgoing his junior and senior years to enter the NBA draft. Jeffries was a key cog in the Hoosiers' Cinderella run to the 2002 NCAA title game. Against #1 Duke in the East Regional Semifinals, Jeffries had 24 points and 15 rebounds to lead IU to a 74-73 upset victory. Jeffries received the 2002 Silver Basketball from the Chicago Tribune as the Most Valuable Player of the Big Ten.

Professional career[edit]

The New York Knicks signed Jeffries on August 8, 2006 after the Washington Wizards declined to match the Knicks' offer.[1] Shortly before the 2006 season, Jeffries suffered a wrist injury[2] and missed the first 23 games of the season.

On December 16, 2006, Jeffries was involved in the Knicks–Nuggets brawl. He was suspended for four games. On February 18, 2010, he was traded to the Houston Rockets along with Jordan Hill as part of a three team trade which sent Tracy McGrady to the New York Knicks. Jeffries agreed to a buyout with the Rockets on February 25, 2011.[3] On March 1, 2011, Jeffries rejoined the Knicks.[4]

On July 16, 2012, Jeffries, Dan Gadzuric, the rights to Greek forward Giorgos Printezis and the 48th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, Kostas Papanikolaou, and a 2016 second round pick were traded to the Portland Trail Blazers for Kurt Thomas and Raymond Felton.[5]

On April 18, 2013, the Trail Blazers announced that they had waived Jeffries.[6]

In September 2013, it was reported that the Denver Nuggets had hired Jeffries as a scout.[7]

Television Career[edit]

In 2014, Jeffries began hosting Modern Fishing with Jared Jeffries, a fishing television series on the Outdoor Channel.[8]
