Cavs Recall Kevin Jones

The Cavaliers have recalled power forward Kevin Jones from the D-League's Canton Charge, according to Sam Amico of FOXSports.com.  The undrafted rookie out of West Virginia hooked on with the Cavs in summer camp and was one of three players to be assigned to their D-League affiliate.

Jones was on a tear for the Charge and the Cavs thought enough of Jones to waive Luke Harangody in order to sign him last week.  The former Celtic beat Jones out for a spot on the Cavs' roster this offseason but never actually appeared in a game.  The Cavs are on the hook for Harangody's full $1.05MM guaranteed salary for 2012/13.

In five D-League games, Jones has averaged 23.6 PPG and 12.6 RPG in 41 minutes per contest.  The 6'8" forward was projected to be an early or mid-second-round pick in the 2012 draft before a bone bruise took him out of the pre-draft circuit and kept him out of summer league play.
