The New York Knicks, by signing Louis Amundson to a 10-day contract Saturday, have just expanded the NBA’s all-time 10-team club to an even dozen. Amundson was promptly waived by the Knicks earlier this week after they acquired him from Cleveland as part of the three-team swap with Memphis and Oklahoma City headlined by J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Dion Waiters. But by resigning him, New York has given Amundson the opportunity to join the following exclusive list Below are the only 12 players in league history to have played for at least 10 different teams: 12 teams: Chucky Brown, Jim Jackson, Tony Massenburg and Joe Smith. 11 teams: Mike James and Kevin Ollie. 10 teams: Lou Amundson, Earl Boykins, Mark Bryant, Drew Gooden, Damon Jones and Aaron Williams.

Miami Heat MVP LeBron James hosted a party Saturday night at Tao in The Venetian to celebrate his NBA team’s back-to-back championship. Before James arrived at The Heat Repeat Championship Party in a leather Miami Heat cap, he dined at Tao with a large group that included NBA players Damon Jones and Juwan Howard. The party enjoyed signatures off the menu, while James requested blackened salmon with asparagus before heading upstairs to the nightclub.
Damon Jones was once one of the NBA’s leading 3-point shooters during his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he played with 10 teams over 11 seasons. He longed to return to the league after being waived by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2008 but he never received the opportunity. Four years later, he asked Celtics summer league coach Tyronn Lue for an opportunity to sit on the sideline. The 36-year-old Jones was leading young men in the Las Vegas Summer League instead of getting one final look to vie for a roster spot. His transition to the post- career Damon Jones has begun, and he said he enjoyed his five-game experience on the Celtics sideline. “I am officially retired and looking to get on the other side, whether it be coaching, management, or whatever the situation may be,” he said. “I thought that this would be some good exposure to be able to help. Tyronn, being one of my closest friends, gave me the opportunity, so I am doing whatever I can to help him.”
