James Jones to return to Cavs

While speaking recently to the media at the taping of the NBPA’s Players Awards, veteran NBA G/F James Jones indicated that he will indeed return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Jones is a close friend of LeBron James and followed him from the Miami Heat to the Cavaliers last season.  Jones, 34, averaged 4.4 points in 57 games with the Cavaliers last season.

“I’ll be back in Cleveland for sure,” Jones said, “I’ve made it well known last year when I told them I was coming to help change the culture and do something special…….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.”

The government alleges that Haider Zafar defrauded players Mike Miller, James Jones and Rashard Lewis in 2013 by promising to invest $7.5 million in various business opportunities. Instead, prosecutors say, Zafar kept the money and used some of it to buy a $1 million, three-season Heat ticket package. A judge is preparing to sentence Zafar, who pleaded guilty in a multimillion-dollar scam involving the three former Miami Heat players and the team itself. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum, File)
