Jefferson was a member of the San Antonio Spurs during Summer League where he averaged 7.7 points and 5.0 rebounds in six games before reportedly injuring his knee.
Previously, Jefferson spent a majority of last season with the Austin Spurs before leaving the G-League to play for the Alaska Aces of the Philippine Basketball Association.
Despite signing overseas, Jefferson is still eligible to sign a two-way contract with the Spurs, or any NBA team, at a later date. Teams are not required to use the two extra roster spots granted by two-way contracts, and the deadline to sign players to a two-way deal is January 15th.
Meanwhile for EA7 Milano, Jefferson adds some nice size to their frontcourt while getting the opportunity to play with a few notable teammates in Zoran Dragic, Andrew Goudelock, and Dairis Bertans, brother of San Antonio Spurs forward Davis.
