Breaking: Cavs agree to 1-year, $1.5 million deal with James Jones

The Cavs have made some minor splashes in trades and free agency this summer, but have mostly tried to bring the same team back. They lost Matthew Dellavedova and Timofey Mozgov to the Bucks and Lakers, respectively, but they weren’t about to lose the guy whose nicknamed “Champ.”

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, the Cavs and James Jones agreed to a one year, $1.55 million deal to bring the three-time NBA champion back to The Land.

Jones didn’t play much this season at all, as the Cavs found a rotation that worked for them in the postseason and they ran with it. Jones averaged just 3.7 points and a rebound a game, but most of his contributions came as an emotional and vocal leader in the Cavs locker room.

Now all that’s left is for the Cavs to re-sign J.R. Smith and finalize the details in the contract of LeBron James.
