Cavaliers assistant Damon Jones will coach the team in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas next month. Jones, 40, was in his first season as a full-time assistant with the Cavs in 2016-17. A former Cleveland player who rejoined the organization in 2014-15 as James’ personal shooting aide, Jones was one of two additions to the coaching staff made by head coach Tyronn Lue.
The pregame ritual has been the Cavs’ signature since LeBron James and Damon Jones cooked it up during James’ rookie year in 2004. Coach Tyronn Lue watches and longs for the day when the Cavs are as adept at recalling some defensive schemes as they are at remembering each greeting. “I don’t know where they come [up] with all of that stuff,” Lue said last week.
Additionally, Damon Jones was named a Cavs Assistant Coach, joining Jim Boylan, Mike Longabardi and James Posey. Phil Handy returns as Cavs Director of Player Development/Assistant Coach and Vitaly Potapenko remains as Assistant Director of Player Development. Mike Gerrity has been promoted to Director of Player Development for the Charge and will serve as Player Development Assistant with the Cavs.
