“I’ll be back in Cleveland for sure.
“I’ve made it well known last year when I told them I was coming to help change the culture and do something special,” Jones said. “It wasn’t a situation where I was looking for a platform to move on. I was looking to be a part of something, to build something. And so I’m still in.”
Jones, who played in just 57 games this past regular season, played in all 20 postseason games and averaged 4.4 points and 1.5 rebounds as the backup small forward. The Cavs will now focus on getting an agreement with Tristan Thompson and trading away Brendan Haywood.
Stay tuned to see what the Cavs will do next!
