Cavs sign G/F Dahntay Jones.

He had a big game in the finale last year with 14 points in 37 minutes, so maybe he gets some heavy action tonight. Jones will be a risky DFS play.

ESPN is reporting that the Cavs will use their final roster spot to sign Dahntay Jones.

Jones has likely spent the past few weeks warming up his shoulder, as he will be doing plenty of towel waving and cheering from the bench during the Cavs postseason run, starting this weekend.

The Cavaliers are planning to use their empty roster to sign Dahntay Jones.

This move doesn't exactly change the landscape of the NBA, but Jones is a capable defender and will provide some emergency depth off the bench. It would be surprising if he enters the rotation, though.

The Cavs have waived G/F Dahntay Jones.

Jones appeared in two preseason games for the Cavs, averaging 4.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 20.4 minutes. Jones also appeared in 15 postseason games for the Cavs last season.

The Cavaliers are expected to waive Dahntay Jones.

This means that DeAndre Liggins will make the 15-man roster. Jones wouldn't have been in the rotation anyways, especially after J.R. Smith finally re-signed.

Dahntay Jones will sign with the Cavaliers on a non-guaranteed deal.

He has some fantastic per-game averages last year, but he only played in the season finale while the Cavs rested players. Assuming J.R. Smith signs, Jones would have to beat out some player for the 15th roster spot.

Cavs release G/F Dahntay Jones.

He's an NBA champion despite playing in one regular season game and a total of 50 minutes in the postseason -- mostly garbage time. Jones is going to be 36 in December, so his NBA career could be over, although the Cavs may bring him back for the veteran's minimum. If he does decide to call it quits, he'd join Sasha Kaun as another Cav going out on top.

Dahntay Jones has been suspended one game for hitting Bismack Biyombo in the groin region during the closing minutes of Game 3.

Jones is a negligible part of the Cavs rotation, so his mandatory absence from Game 4 will have zero consequence in fantasy hoops.

Newly-signed swingman Dahntay Jones logged 42 minutes for the Cavs on Wednesday, posting 13 points on 6-of-14 shooting, five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal.

"I'm still the same defensive-minded individual I was many years ago," Jones said. "I had to adapt and make my niche throughout the league." He played some PG tonight and could earn a few minutes if Iman Shumpert's knee injury forces him to miss playoff games, but fantasy owners can safely ignore him.

The Cavs have signed Dahntay Jones for the postseason, and he'll be available to play in Cleveland's regular-season finale Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

The Cavs will be resting Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, LeBron James and J.R. Smith on Wednesday night, and with Mo Williams (knee) and Iman Shumpert (knee) also set to miss Wednesday's game, Jones could be in the rotation tonight. Still, even with all those guys unavailable, it's unlikely that Jones will be able to make a meaningful impact on the box score.

Veteran Dahntay Jones has signed in the D-League.

He'll play with the Grand Rapids Drive, and is obviously not content to sit at home after failing to make Brooklyn's final roster.

Nets waive G/F Dahntay Jones.

The Nets are rebuilding, so having a veteran like Jones on the roster didn't make much sense even though he's from New Jersey.
Mon, Oct 26, 2015 03:38:00 PM

The Nets and Dahntay Jones have agreed to a non-guaranteed contract, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Jones has familiarity with Lionel Hollins from their time together previously, and with the Nets' depth on the wing, it wouldn't be a total surprise to see the veteran actually make Brooklyn's final roster. Jones most recently spent time in the NBA with the Clippers last season.
Mon, Sep 7, 2015 01:26:00 PM

Dahntay Jones has received interest from the Kings, Clippers and Knicks.

It'll be a for minimum deal. Jones didn't do much this season and his most newsworthy item of the season was bumping into Draymond Green during an interview. He's from New Jersey, so maybe that can actually help the Knicks sign someone.
