Top Damian Jones News

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Joining Lakers

    Jones and the Lakers agreed Thursday to a two-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The second year is a player option.

    Jones has proven to be a solid backup center. He's coming off a career year with the Kings, where he averaged 8.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 18.2 minutes. His role for next season will partially depend on whether Dwight Howard returns.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Stellar play continues

    Jones finished Tuesday's 123-109 loss to New Orleans with 22 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 29 minutes.

    Jones continues to post monster numbers amid Domantas Sabonis' (knee) absence. With Alex Len (back) and Richaun Holmes (personal) also out, Damian has free rein in the paint. He's taken full advantage, averaging 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.7 blocked shots over seven starts.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Records monster double-double

    Jones provided 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-3 FT), 17 rebounds, two assists and six blocks over 31 minutes during Friday's 122-117 win over the Rockets.

    Jones has been excellent since moving to the starting lineup five games ago and has scored in double digits in each one of those contests, but this one might go down as one of the best performances of his career. Aside from recording a career-best figure in both rebounds and blocks, he also missed just two shots from the field. The big man is now averaging 16.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game since moving to the starting unit with Richaun Holmes (personal) sidelined.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Fills stat sheet in win

    Jones posted 24 points (9-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-9 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, four blocks and one steal over 34 minutes during Wednesday's 121-118 win over the Rockets.

    Jones was efficient from a shooting perspective but did more than just scoring, as he ended just one rebound away from a double-double and also accounted for stats across the board. The veteran big man has started each of Sacramento's last four games and has thrived, putting up 12 or more points in each of those contests while pulling down six or more boards in three of those appearances.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Offers efficient scoring in loss

    Jones posted 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 25 minutes in Monday's 123-100 loss to the Heat.

    Making his third consecutive start in place of Domantas Sabonis (knee), Jones turned in his usual efficient scoring, but his stat line was fairly hollow beyond that. Though his upside isn't especially high, Jones' role looks secure the rest of the way, as Sabonis will miss at least the next two games and is probably trending toward sitting out the remainder of the season, given that the Kings face long odds to earn a spot in the play-in tournament.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Tips in game-winner

    Jones chipped in 12 points (5-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 30 minutes during Wednesday's 110-109 victory over the Pacers.

    Jones supplied Wednesday's clutch play -- rebounding and tipping-in a Trey Lyles miss to ice the game with under a second to play. Jones is likely to remain in the starting lineup with Domantas Sabonis (knee) out for the foreseeable future. There is a chance Sabonis could be shutdown for the season, which would drastically boost the roles of Jones and Chimezie Metu.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Starting for Sabonis

    Jones will start Wednesday's game against the Pacers, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    With Domantas Sabonis (knee) expected to miss at least the next five games, Jones is set to make just his seventh start of the season Wednesday. The 26-year-old is averaging 6.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 15.9 minutes per game this season.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Posts well-rounded line

    Jones logged 13 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block across 22 minutes during Sunday's 127-124 overtime loss to Phoenix.

    With starting center Domantas Sabonis (knee) in the fourth quarter, Jones was called on to fill the void admirably while doubling up his minute total (11) from the previous three games combined. If Jones can consistently get a 20-plus-minute role, he would have some low-end appeal in 12-team leagues, but his path to meaningful playing time is almost entirely contingent on the health of Sabonis. The Kings should provide an update on Sabonis' condition before they head out on a five-game road trip that begins Wednesday in Indiana.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Back in bench role

    Jones isn't starting Monday's game against Chicago.

    Jones finished with six points, two boards, three assists, one steal and one block in Saturday's spot start, but with Domantas Sabonis back in action, he'll head to the bench. He's averaging 6.7 points and 3.9 rebounds in his last seven games utilized off the bench.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Starting for absent Sabonis

    Jones will start Saturday's game against the Jazz, Brenden Nunes of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    With Domantas Sabonis (personal) out, Jones will get the nod. He played 37 minutes in Sabonis' first absence and posted eight points, seven boards, four steals and two assists.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Perfect from field Thursday

    Jones produced 10 points (5-5 FG), seven rebounds and two assists over 20 minutes during Thursday's 115-112 victory over the Spurs.

    Jones logged his most playing time since Feb. 8 thanks largely to starter Domantas Sabonis' foul trouble that limited him to 28 minutes. The former made the most of his time on the court, making all five of his field-goal attempts and ranking second on the club with seven boards. Jones had played in only four of Sacramento's previous seven games entering Thursday, averaging a paltry 5.0 points and 2.0 boards over that stretch.
