"Hes shown himself well," Corbin said. "Its an option that we do have."

Jefferson has played in three of Utahs four exhibition games. He has started twice and averaged 6.3 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20 minutes.

"We wanted him to come into great shape, and hes done that," Corbin said. "Hes learning his teammates and theyre learning him. Hes getting a feel for what he can do with this group. So its been encouraging."

If Jefferson proves capable of starting, Corbin would be able to bring Alec Burks off the bench as a second-unit scorer.

When veteran Marvin Williams returns from injury, he could join Burks and make Utahs bench more formidable than if either one has to starts.

"He understands who he is at this point in his career," Corbin said about Jefferson. "He sees the opportunity to be with a young group a new group and finding a niche with these guys."
