Veteran shooting guard James Jones wants to extend his partnership with LeBron James by re-signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Jones said in a report that he wants to return to the Cavaliers. The 34-year-old shooter is a free agent in the current offseason.
"I've made it well known last year when I told them I was coming to help change the culture and do something special," Jones said. "It wasn't a situation where I was looking for a platform to move on. I was looking to be a part of something, to build something. And so I'm still in."
Jones also said he’s excited to stay with the Cavaliers as fans will see “a different James Jones next year.”
Jones was a teammate of James when the latter played for the Miami Heat from 2010 to 2014. Jones followed James when James returned to the Cavaliers for the 2014-15 season. A 12-year NBA veteran, Jones also had stints with the Indiana Pacers, Portland Trail Blazers and Phoenix Suns.
The shooting specialist, who was the Three-Point Shootout Champion in 2011, was part of the Heat championship teams in 2012 and 2013.
Jones played in 57 games last regular season and 20 games in the playoffs, averaging 4.4 points on 35 percent shooting from the three-point area.
