Undrafted Forward Kevin Jones to Sign Three-Year Deal With Cleveland Cavaliers


Former West Virginia big man Kevin Jones went undrafted Thursday night, but doesn’t seem to have lasted too long on the open market. According to SNY, Jones will be headed to Cleveland after he signs a three-year, partially guaranteed contract with the Cavs: “Former West Virginia forward Kevin Jones has discussed the parameters and is expected to agree to a three-year, partially-guaranteed, multi-million dollar contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, his agent, Bill Neff, told SNY.tv. Free agents cannot formally sign deals until after midnight tonight. ‘We’re just real excited because it’s a good fit,’ Neff said. ‘We had a strategy. The bottom line is we wanted to get him to a certain team and this is precisely the kind of team we wanted to get him to that would develop him.’ Neff said Jones will play with the Cavaliers’ summer league team and could potentially play with their D-League franchise. ‘He’s looking forward to showing some people that they missed on him,’ Neff said.”

    I waited all those hours to hear who was smart enough to get this sleeper and all these teams went with all those mediocre international players who might not even come over for another season or two. But I’m happy to see him with the Cavaliers. There is not one team that is not going to take this new Cavs team seriously.

    Yeah hes a sleeper but dont call the international players mediocre! These are kids that have been playing pro since they were 16 in the leagues that any players that dont (or do) play in the nba go to next for high level competition and big pay days, these leagues are far better than the d-league, college league and are not too far off the nba. Im guessing there was a reason he went undrafted, weather he is talented or not the scouts must know something that your average basketball fan doesnt (im guessing)
