Dahntay Jones signed with the Jazz for training camp.

The terms of the deal are not yet known, but it's probably not a guaranteed deal. Jones has worked out for a handful of teams and likely thinks he has the best chance to make an NBA team with the Jazz.

Dahntay Jones worked out for the Wizards on Thursday in Las Vegas.

As many as 20 teams are expected to take a look at Jones this summer. There is believed to be little to no interest from the Wizards, though. Jones has been working out for other East Coast teams such as the Nets, 76ers and Knicks, but nothing is imminent. He didn't play in the NBA last season after the Bulls waived him in October.

The Knicks are expected to work out Dahntay Jones.

The Sixers and Nets are also expected to give him a look. Jones is from Hamilton, NJ, so staying close to home may explain the location of these workouts. He is a longshot to make any team's rotation.

The Knicks worked out free agent G/F Dahntay Jones on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

New York has two open roster spots and they're reportedly hoping to fill one of them with a wing defender. Jones fits the bill but he's extremely unlikely to provide fantasy value even if he does land a 10-day contract with the Knicks.

Bulls waive G/F Dahntay Jones.

The veteran swingman may earn a minimum contract with another team, but his days of fantasy relevance are over. Chicago's training camp roster now stands at 15 players.

Dahntay Jones started at SG and played 43 minutes on Saturday, but he scored only nine points with three boards, two assists and three steals.

Jones shot 2-of-10 from the field in a hard-fought road game which the Hawks ultimately lost to the Spurs. Tonight's quiet line aside, Jones is too risky to pick up in standard leagues -- he only started tonight because the Hawks were missing Devin Harris (foot), DeShawn Stevenson (rest) and Kyle Korver (general soreness).

Dahntay Jones will start alongside Devin Harris with Jeff Teague (ankle) sidelined Wednesday.

In 10 games with the Hawks, Jones has averaged just 1.2 points, 0.9 assists and 0.8 rebounds while playing roughly 10 minutes per night. He's not worth spot-start consideration except maybe in the deepest of leagues.

Dahntay Jones made his debut for the Hawks on Friday in a two-minute effort.

Jones needs to show he can put up numbers before he gets consideration in the deepest of leagues.

Updating a previous post, Dahntay Jones has passed his physical exam and is active Friday night.

There was question as to whether Jones would be available Friday, although we're not expecting him to play. When he does get on the court, Jones is unlikely to have much of an impact in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Fri, Feb 22, 2013 06:22:00 PM

The Hawks have acquired Dahntay Jones in exchange for Anthony Morrow in a trade on Thursday and he's expected to join the team on Friday.

He's been an afterthought in Dallas with Vince Carter playing well and played just 8.7 minutes per game this year. A move to Atlanta could help his value, but this news should only be interesting to owners in extremely deep leagues.

Dahntay Jones drew another start for injured Shawn Marion (groin) in Monday's blowout win over the Kings, scoring 11 points on 3-of-6 shooting with three rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes.

Jones had an empty eight points in Saturday's start, and we need to see more from him than just a low-end effort against a team that mailed it in before we recommend him for spot action.
Tue, Dec 11, 2012 12:41:00 AM

Dahntay Jones started for the Mavs on Saturday and wound up with eight points, zero rebounds and zero assists in 21 minutes vs. the Rockets.

Jones will likely start for as long as Shawn Marion (groin) is sidelined, but tonight's line is an honest example of his (lack of) value.
Sun, Dec 9, 2012 12:26:00 AM

Dahntay Jones will start for the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Shawn Marion is out tonight and could miss more time, as Jones will replace rookie Jae Crowder in the starting unit for now. It would be surprising if Jones offers any fantasy value, even while starting.
Wed, Nov 14, 2012 07:58:00 PM

Dahntay Jones could see extended minutes with Shawn Marion (knee) expected to miss at least three games.

The Mavs will likely start rookie Jae Crowder in Marion's absence, but Jones should get a few extra minutes as a result of Marion's absence. However, Jones has no fantasy value and Crowder is the guy to own here.
