Raptors waive Dwayne Jones

1 Comment

According to the Toronto Globe and Mail, the Toronto Raptors have officially waived journeyman forward Dwayne Jones. The Raptors acquired Jones in the Hedo Turkoglu trade, but he was waived before ever playing a game for Toronto. 

Jones has played for four NBA teams in five seasons, but was only really a part of the rotation in Cleveland, when he averaged 8.4 minutes per game in 56 appearances during the 2007-08 season. Jones is tall, fairly athletic, and a decent rebounder, but he’s mostly been used to occupy an end-of-the bench seat or bolster a D-League roster up to this point in his career.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
