The Chicago Bulls announced today the signing of free agents Kim English, Ben Hansbrough and Solomon Jones to round out their 2014-15 training camp roster. Per team policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
Shams Charania: The Chicago Bulls have signed free agent center Solomon Jones to a one-year, veteran-minimum deal, league source tells RealGM.
According to sources, Solomon Jones has entered his name into the NBA D-League player pool. DLeagueDigest.com first learned of Jones’ consideration back on January 16, but later learned that he was waiting for the best situation to present itself.
It was reported here at DleagueDigest.com that Solomon Jones was entering the NBA D-League player pool, and according to sources Jones is still intent on going to the NBADL, but is waiting for a good situation before entering. Jones played with the Orlando Magic earlier this season, and would no doubt be a solid addition for any NBA D-League team in need of a big man.
According to a source, Solomon Jones will enter his name into the NBA D-League player pool. Jones was waived by the Orlando Magic on January 7. Jones appeared in 11 games and averaged 1.2 points, 1.4 rebounds in 7.7 minutes this season. Up until this point, the 7-year NBA veteran has never played in the NBA D-League.
The Orlando Magic waived reserve big man Solomon Jones after the team’s 110-94 loss to the Miami Heat on Saturday night. Waiving Jones, coupled with the decision to waive Hedo Turkoglu on Friday, leaves the Magic’s roster at 13 players and gives the Magic some additional roster flexibility. (An NBA team may carry a maximum of 15 players on its roster.) Jones’ salary for the season was $1,186,459, but it was fully unguaranteed. If the Magic had kept him beyond the close of business on Jan. 7, his entire salary would’ve become guaranteed.
Orlando – Hedo Turkoglu and Solomon Jones: Tukoglu is guaranteed to be waived, and indeed may have already been by the time you read this. Meanwhile, the veteran Jones adds little to a young team not intending to win much in the short term, and hasn’t played well in his limited time, but the waiving of Turkoglu opens up a roster spot so he may not need to be.
Orlando Magic backup big man Solomon Jones suffered a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee and will need surgery, team officials said. It’s unclear when he’ll be able to return, but it’s a disappointing development for the 29-year-old Mount Dora native. Team officials said Jones will be out “indefinitely.”

The Magic will bring second-round pick Romero Osby to training camp along with free agents Solomon Jones, Michael Eric, Manny Harris and Kris Joseph, according to a source close to the team.

With their big men seemingly on the way back, the Knicks on Monday waived forward/center Solomon Jones. The Knicks signed Jones on Friday to provide relief for all of the injuries on their front line.
The Knicks have announced the release of F/C Solomon Jones, who appeared in two games, making one start while the team dealt with various frontcourt injuries last week. The move might ultimately be explained by the bigger news of the day: Rasheed Wallace may play tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats. Newsday’s Al Iannazzone: There is a good chance Rasheed Wallace will try and play tonight.
NY_KnicksPR: NY Knicks EVP, Basketball Operations & GM Glen Grunwald announced today that the team has waived F/C Solomon Jones.
Mike Woodson discussed the signing of big man Solomon Jones and how much he might play for the Knicks as the regular season winds down. “He was a guy that I had in Atlanta that we drafted when I was there,” Woodson said. “He kind of fits what I like in terms of shot blocking and rebounding the ball and playing defense. That’s why he’s here.” Solomon was brought in because the Knicks are so shorthanded up front. So his playing time is up in the air, based on the game, the situation and who’s available. “It all depends,” Woodson said. “I don’t know what kind of shape he’s in. He played some in China last month. We’ll gauge it as we go along.” He had no points and one rebound in 12 minutes in his debut.
Shams Charania: Solomon Jones’ contract with Knicks becomes guaranteed for a second year if it hits date in offseason, agent Mark Bartelstein tells RealGM.
With a need to bolster their depleted frontline depth, the New York Knicks will sign veteran center Solomon Jones, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Paul Coro: The #Suns waived Ike Diogu & Solomon Jones. Luke Zeller & Diante Garrett likely will make the roster. Story to come on azcentral.com.
The most pressing decision comes in choosing a big man among local favorite Ike Diogu, another NBA veteran in Solomon Jones or rookie sharpshooter Luke Zeller. More than choosing which player performs best, the Suns likely will end up choosing which player’s style suits them best.
Once relatively settled with 13 guaranteed contracts, the Suns likely will stage a battle for another roster spot in light of the expectation that Channing Frye’s enlarged heart will sideline him for the season. The Suns have invited NBA veteran power forward/center Solomon Jones, power forward/center Luke Zeller, swingman Othyus Jeffers and point guard Diante Garrett to training camp, which opens Tuesday with the first of four consecutive two-a-day sessions at UC-San Diego. The camp, which is closed to the public, will conclude Saturday with an intrasquad scrimmage before the Suns return to Phoenix to prepare for their Oct. 10 preseason opener at Sacramento.
The former South Florida standout, drafted 33rd in 2006 by Atlanta, has career averages of 3.3 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.6 blocks in 11.1 minutes per appearance. He is an athletic shot blocker who provides the Suns some front-line insurance behind Channing Frye, whose summer has been dedicated to shoulder rehabilitation. He played for Atlanta (2006-09) and Indiana (2009-2011) before playing 21 games last season with the Clippers and Hornets. “I think there’s going to be an opportunity there for him,” Jones’ agent, Mark Bartelstein, said of Phoenix. “He’s worked out hard this summer and he’s in great shape.”
Add another happy camper to the Suns training camp that begins in two weeks. Veteran big man Solomon Jones will sign a non-guaranteed contract to become the first make-good player on this year’s Suns training camp roster, which already has 13 guaranteed contacts (the NBA roster minimum). Jones, 28, is a 6-foot-10, 245-pound power forward/center who has played 268 NBA games for four teams over six seasons. He joined the Los Angeles Clippers early last season but was waived, setting up a stint of two 10-day contracts with New Orleans.
