10:23am: The Bulls have officially announced the signing of Jones and their five other camp invitees: Patrick Christopher, Mike James, , Kalin Lucas, Dexter Pittman, and D.J. White. The team's camp roster is now finalized, according to a press release.
9:04am: 10-year veteran Dahntay Jones has found an NBA home for at least the next few weeks, according to Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype.com, who hears from agent Mark Bartelstein that Jones will sign with the Bulls (Twitter link).
Jones, 32, has spent time with the Grizzlies, Kings, Nuggets, Pacers, Mavericks, and Hawks since being drafted 20th overall in 2003. He enjoyed his best run with the Pacers from 2009 to 2012, averaging 7.6 PPG and an 11.1 PER in three seasons with the team. In 2012/13, he played limited minutes in 78 total contests for Dallas and Atlanta, scoring 3.4 PPG and shooting just 36.9% from the floor, by far his worst mark since his rookie year.
The Bulls, who have traditionally been averse to paying tax penalties, are over the threshold this year, but may look to reduce their bill by carrying the minimum 13 players. In that case, there would likely only be one spot up for grabs for the team's camp invitees, since 11 players have guaranteed contracts, and rookie Erik Murphy has a $250K guarantee on his deal. That will make it an uphill battle for Jones to earn a regular-season roster spot, though his chances would increase if Chicago decided to carry 14 or 15 players.
