It won’t be rumored Anderson Varejao, but the Cavaliers are bringing back a familiar face after waiving DeAndre Liggins:

Dahntay Jones.

Chris Reichert of The Step Back:

The Cavs also signed Jones for their final regular-season game and the playoffs last year, and they won the title. Just sayin’.

The 36-year-old Jones hasn’t played this year after getting cut from Cleveland’s preseason roster. It shouldn’t take much time to acclimate to his role.

Jones can be a nuisance. He infamously hit Bismack Biyombo in the nuts during last year’s conference finals, drawing a one-game suspension that cost him a whopping $80.17, because his base salary was for only one day.

But Jones will have a slightly different situation with the Cavaliers this year. Assuming he signs tomorrow — Cleveland doesn’t play today — a one-game suspension would cost him $82.98.
