Earlier today, Cory Jefferson released a photo on his Instagram account showing him signing what looked to be a contract, with the caption "It's official, Thank God" and a verse from the Bible, Matthew 19:30, that relates to him being the last player picked in the Draft...
"So the last will be first, and the first will be last."
However, no contract is official until a GM signs it and it's approved by the league office. So far, all NetsDaily has confirmed is that Jefferson had indeed signed a contract with the Brooklyn Nets.
Later, tim Bontemps later tweeted that the Nets plan to sign Markel Brown, as expected, along with Jefferson.

Jefferson was the 60th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He played PF at Baylor, averaging 13.6 points and 8.1 rebounds in 29.3 minutes per game. His athleticism, including a 37.5" max vertical, was one of his best assets.
