High school

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 center and Sacramento Kings power forward Sean May. Jeffries was recognized as the 2000 Indiana Mr. Basketball.

College (Indiana)

Jeffries then attended Indiana University, where he played for two years before forgoing his junior and senior years to enter the NBA draft in 2002. While in college, he was a part of the team that advanced to the NCAA title game before losing to the Maryland Terrapins. Jeffries received the 2002 Silver Basketball from the Chicago Tribune as the Most Valuable Player of the Big Ten.

NBA

The New York Knicks signed Jeffries on August 8, 2006 after the Wizards declined to match the Knicks' offer.[2] Shortly before the 2006 season, Jeffries suffered a wrist injury[3] 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.
