The NBA suspended Dahntay Jones one game for hitting Bismack Biyombo in the groin, automatically triggering a fine for 1/110th of Jones salary. Jones signed for the prorated minimum on the final day of the regular season to make him eligible for the Cavaliers’ playoff roster.

That means his fine comes to… $80.17.

Yup. Eighty dollars and seventeen cents.

Not that he’ll have to pay it himself anyway.

LeBron James is magnanimously stepping in to handle that monumental amount.

Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com:

LeBron James said he intends to cover the fine imposed on Cleveland Cavaliers reserve Dahntay Jones for the one-game suspension he received for punching Bismack Biyombo in the groin at the end of Game 3.

James Michael McAdoo should volunteer to serve Draymond Green‘s potential suspension.
