Cavaliers Release Dahntay Jones

5:19pm: Cleveland may re-sign Jones to a veteran’s minimum deal, tweets Chris Reichert of Upside and Motor.

4:30pm: The Cavaliers have released veteran swingman Dahntay Jones, tweets Jason Lloyd of The Akron Beacon Journal. Jones’ full $1,551,659 salary for next season would have become guaranteed Monday if he had remained on the roster.

Cleveland signed the 35-year-old swingman April 13th, and he appeared in just one game before the regular season ended. Jones made it into 15 playoff contests, mostly in a mop-up role, averaging 1.1 points in 3.3 minutes per night. His most notable moment was a one-game suspension for hitting Toronto’s Bismack Biyombo in the groin.

Jones was selected by the Celtics in the first round of the 2003 draft and traded to the Grizzlies on draft night. He has also played for the Pacers, Nuggets, Mavericks, Clippers, Hawks and Kings in his 13-year NBA career.

I’m fine with them releasing Dahntay. All he ever did was 1. Score 6 points in 6 minutes during game 6. 2. Cheer on the bench. And 3. Punch Biyombo in the nuts
