    Looks like he's going to continue to play for the Charge.

    Re: Cavs sign Kevin Jones (and waive Harangody)

    From the moment that Jones fell out of the draft, this move seemed inevitable. Just a question whether the Cavs were going to use Harangody as part of a trade or somehow recoup their costs. And now it sounds like interest in Jones from another team forced their hand.

    So, Harangody gets $1M for being smart enough to sign his QO as quickly as possible, Jones finally gets a bigger payday, and Cavs fans can thank Gilbert for not letting the extra cost prevent the Cavs from taking a flyer on Jones.

    Nice to see this move happen.

    NICE. Now we can see this kid play. They are probably gonna guage how he does compared to Andy too. If Jones comes in and does ANYTHING promising Andy gets slightly expendable.....Very slightly

    Luke was a part of the championship core. This is a disgrace.

    I really dont think luke got a fair shake after he showed considerable improvement. I put him far ahead of lueur but if Scott wasnt going to play him no sense keeping him on the roster.

    Re: Cavs sign Kevin Jones (and waive Harangody)


    Both really had no reason to be on this roster, IMO. I guess Leuer at least has a bit more of a reason to be retained. Luke probably ends up back in the DLeague when he recovers from injury anyway, so maybe he signs back on with Canton.

    I posted this last week, but Kevin Jones clearly was the best player on the court out there for either team and it wasnt even close. If the Cavs didnt sign him then some other team would have so its smart to protect themselves from losing out on him.

    Just hope he's not another D-League rock-star that isn't much of anything in the league, like Darnell.

    Lueur has looked like piping hot feces every chance he's gotten thus far. If that doesnt change, I hope another kid gets a shot. We have nothing to lose at this point...

    Both the Harangody release and the Jones signing were long overdue. Nice to kill 2 birds with one stone. Can't wait for this kid to get a shot.

    Nah. Too slow. He could get a fw mins here and there in some sort of lineup where we are looking to force a matchup issue or in response to another team's going big or something.

    Re: Cavs sign Kevin Jones (and waive Harangody)

    Good for Kevin. I actually work at a movie theater in canton, and he came in to see a movie late at night when nobody was there. We talked for a little bit about basketball, and I told him that the Cavs should give him a shot with how bad they are doing. He was really nice. He just told me that he just had to continue to prove himself in the D league until he got a shot somewhere. I could kind of tell by the way he talked though that he might be called up soon. He had a really excited tone is his voice. Anyways good for Kevin. Hopefully he turns into a serviceable player.

    On a side note. I'm assuming the person he brought was his girlfriend. She was smoking hot.

    There goes my dream of keeping Harangody and drafting Jack Cooley and not knowing which one is on the floor. Damn! Go K. Jones!!

    Re: Cavs sign Kevin Jones (and waive Harangody)

    This is the type of move that gets fans excited but means really nothing to the future of this franchise. Harangody is not NBA caliber and Jones will be Samuels in 3 years. But change at the back of the bench is better than nothing I guess.
