Dahntay Jones to Indiana

The Nuggets let Jones walk, and now he’s a Pacer: “The Pacers agreed to a four-year, $11 million deal with Denver Nuggets free agent guard Dahntay Jones late Wednesday night. The fourth year is a player option. ‘(Pacers president) Larry Bird and (general manager) David Morway contacted me the first night of free agency and expressed a lot of interest in Dahntay,’ Jones’ agent, Mark Bartelstein, said. ‘The Pacers are getting somebody that competes with an edge and is a lockdown defender. He’s going to bring a defensive mind-set to the team.’”

    Man … this guy … is terrible at basketball. But can dunk.

  • underdog

    He’s the poor man’s Kobe Stopper, but he’s ok. His dunk on Yao was an instant classic.

  • IndyB

    Is Dahntay good enough to be a defensive specialist and 4th wing player on a good team?

    Dahntay:”What? Ron Artest is going to the Lakers?!? He’s got Kobe’s back now? Get me the fu(k out of the Western Conference NOW!”

  • tavoris

    Is this why they let Marquis Daniels walk? aren’t they interchangeable players?

  • IndyB

    @ tavoris… not really one cant shoot to save his life and the other cannot dribble…both decent defenders though… and Dahntay will be about $5 million cheaper this year than Marquis Daniels would’ve been had the Pacers picked up his option.

  • Quail

    maybe the nuggets will do wut the rockets and lakers did (pretty much trade Ariza for Artest) with Daniels and Jones. Sonny Weems isnt good enough to play for the nuggets.
