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.”

“A lot of different teams were reaching out to me and I was weighing my options,” Brewer said to HOOPSWORLD. “At the end of the day, it didn’t come down to money. It came down to the best situation for me, as a person and as a player. I wanted to go somewhere I could win and have success. I wanted to go to a situation where playing basketball would be fun and I would enjoy doing it. You can go to a team that’s not as a good so that you thrive a little bit more, even though you’re losing, but that’s not fun to me. I wanted to go to a place where I could win.” “From day one, the Knicks were on me and my agent,” Brewer said. “I had some relationships with people in the organization. Darrell Walker, one of the assistant coaches, and Damon Jones, who works in the front office, both went to Arkansas and they reached out to me. Coach Woodson reached out to me and the GM reached out to me as well. I felt like they really wanted me and I was an important target for their team, maybe the missing piece for them to be successful. It felt good to have the coaches and management reach out to me and recruit me.”
