The Cleveland Cavaliers have made official what has been assumed for awhile; they have brought back James Jones on a one year deal for the veteran's minimum. Chris Haynes has the report:

Jones averaged 4.4 points per game during the 2014-2015 NBA season while shooting 36 percent from behind the arc. Jones was surprisingly effective in a limited role as a three point shooter and was often featured as a stretch four.

The forward will be 35 years old entering next season and will likely once again provide a veteran presence in the locker room in addition to length and three point shooting on the court, Jones won two championships with the Miami Heat and has been to five straight NBA Finals.
