Cavaliers Sign Jones, Assign Him to Charge

The Cleveland Cavaliers have waived forward Luke Harangody and signed forward Kevin Jones to a contract, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. The Cavs have assigned Jones to the Canton Charge, the Cavaliers exclusively owned and operated NBA Development League team, as one of their NBA roster players. Per league and team policy, terms of the contract were not announced.

Harangody appeared in 42 games (one start) with the Cavs over two seasons and averaged 4.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 15.0 minutes per game. Harangody did not appear in any games this season.

Jones, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound rookie forward from West Virginia University, has played in three games this season with the Charge and is averaging 27.0 points on .540 shooting and 13.7 rebounds in 41.3 minutes per game. He was one of three players on the Cavaliers training camp roster that were released and then designated for assignment to the Charge, playing under an NBADL contract.

Jones was the 3rd GATORADE Call-Up of the 2012-13 NBA Development League season, as well as the 24th assignment this year thus far. He will be in uniform with Canton for the first leg of a back-to-back with the Erie BayHawks on tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. at the Canton Memorial Civic Center.
