Cavaliers' Dahntay Jones: Signs with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed with the Cavaliers on Tuesday, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

In a move that will fill the team's final roster opening, the Cavaliers will sign Jones, who they waived in late October in favor of DeAndre Liggins. Jones was an integral part of the Cavaliers' championship roster last season through chemistry and experience, so while his better player days are certainly behind him, he'll likely provide an important presence in the Cavaliers' locker room. It seems unlikely that he'll see significant run with the team through the playoffs.

Dahntay Jones: Waived by Cavs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was waived by the Cavaliers on Monday, Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com reports.

The Cavaliers were essentially deciding between keeping Jones or DeAndre Liggins, and they've apparently opted to go with the younger option of the two. From a chemistry and experience standpoint, Jones was an important piece of the Cavs' championship roster last season, but his best days as a player are well behind him, so the decision to keep Liggins probably makes the most basketball sense. Jones turns 36 in December and could opt for retirement if he doesn't receive interest from another contending team.

Cavaliers' Dahntay Jones: Starts at shooting guard Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jones is in the starting lineup for Monday's preseason matchup with the Hawks.

The Cavaliers are resting their regular starting lineup, so they've opted to start Jones, Kay Felder, James Jones, Cory Jefferson and Jordan McRae. However, once the regular season is here, Jones isn't expected to be a regular contributor and may not even make the final roster, as he's currently battling for the 15th spot on the roster. With that said, he could see extended minutes Monday against the Hawks.

Cavaliers' Dahntay Jones: Re-ups with Cleveland on non-guaranteed deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones agreed Thursday to re-sign with the Cavaliers on a non-guaranteed contract, Joe Vardon of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

After playing 42 minutes in a meaningless regular season finale for the Cavaliers just one day after signing with the team, Jones went largely unused off the bench during the team's postseason run. However, he played a pivotal role in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, scoring five unanswered points in the last 90 seconds of the first half and drawing two crucial fouls on the Warriors' Draymond Green in an eventual Cavs win. Jones was waived earlier in the offseason before his contract became guaranteed for 2016-17, and his new non-guaranteed deal means that he's far from a safe bet to open the upcoming campaign with the team. The 35-year-old will likely have to battle Eric Moreland, John Holland, Cory Jefferson, Markel Brown and DeAndre Liggins for the 15th spot on the roster.

Dahntay Jones: Waived by Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was waived by the Cavaliers on Saturday, ESPN.com reports.

Jones' salary for the 2016-17 season was set to become fully guaranteed Monday, so the Cavaliers opted to release him to increase their roster flexibility for the future. The two sides reportedly do have some mutual interest to bring Jones back into the fold, but we'll likely have to wait at least a few weeks for the Cavaliers to evaluate their other options. Jones saw action in just one regular season game this past year, so he'd likely return as a veteran bench presence again in a similar role.
