Mavericks Waive Swingman Jalen Jones

The Mavericks have waived swingman Jalen Jones, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports tweets.

Jones, who was on a two-way contract, appeared in 12 games for Dallas last season. He averaged 5.8 PPG and 2.9 RPG in 13.5 MPG.

The 6’7” Jones also played four games for the Pelicans last season. Dallas claimed him in January after New Orleans cut him loose. He made history as the first player on a two-way contract getting claimed off waivers.

The Texas A&M product went undrafted out of college.

Dallas opens up a two-way slot by the transaction. Its other two-way slot currently belongs to forward Johnathan Motley.

      How so? Gives more run for new 2nd rounders, they have more upside so useful to have one of them in the 2 way slot. I hope they keep motley tho.

    Another one, biggest one signing DJ, for all that money they should have signed DMC or even Capela, cannot see them doing well next year unless Doncic is otherworldly in his rookie year.

      How would you categorize ‘do well’? If they are competitive and vying for the 8 seed (not saying they will get it) I would say that is a successful season at this point in conjunction with young players progressing.
