Somebody needed to say it, so Dominique Jones – a player who has been on a championship team, but also had trouble playing consistently enough to earn playing time – said it. “We just got to tough it out,” said Jones, the backup point guard who got a quick hook early in the second quarter when things were going south for the Mavericks. “We can’t look for people to blame. Everybody in the organization just needs to look in the mirror. “People say we’re so close. I don’t think we’re close to being a good team. I think we got a lot of work to do. Everybody’s got to be on the same page and have the same goals. We can’t worry about there being nine free agents or why is this guy playing or why ain’t this guy playing. Everybody’s just got to be on the same page.” Dallas Morning News

The Mavericks didn’t pick up Dominique Jones’ fourth-year on his rookie scale contract, which means he’ll be an unrestricted free agent after this season. But that doesn’t mean he couldn’t return to the Mavericks. The Mavericks might elect to re-sign him after the season. “We are in position to keep all our young guys, and veterans too, for that matter, regardless of contract status,’’ president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said. “Our flexibility affords us that luxury.’’ Dallas Morning News

The Mavericks have elected not to exercise their fourth-year option on Dominique Jones, meaning the backup guard will become an unrestricted free agent next summer. NBA teams have until Wednesday night to pick up the fourth-year option on players who still are on their rookie contracts, such as Jones. With the new collective-bargaining agreement creating new financial realities, president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said the Mavericks won’t extend Jones. Dallas Morning News

The Mavs join 22 other NBA teams and a D-League select squad in Las Vegas for a five-game schedule starting next Saturday (Mavs schedule below). The Dallas team will be headlined by guard Dominique Jones, who heads into his third season looking to make a serious push for a rotation spot. He didn't get the chance to compete in Vegas last summer because the lockout wiped out the league. The Mavs' three draft picks will also carry intrigue: combo guard Jared Cunningham (24th), center Bernard James (33rd) and small forward Jae Crowder (34th). ESPN.com

Rick Carlisle said they'll monitor Vince Carter progress before making a decision on possibly recalling second-year guard Dominique Jones from the club's D-League affiliate. The Dallas Mavricks assigned Jones to the Texas Legends on Sunday, prior to departing on this four-game road trip. Carter sprained his left foot on the final play of Monday's loss at the Los Angeles Lakers as he got off a game-tying 3-point attempt. Carlisle ruled Carter out for Wednesday's game at the Los Angeles Clippers, and it would seem unlikely that Carter, who couldn't put weight on the foot after the game, would be available for Thursday night's game at the Utah Jazz.

DallasBasketball.com and FOXSports has learned exclusively that Mavericks guard Dominique Jones is planning to follow up on his rookie (and championship) season by considering a trio of offers to leave the United States and play professionally overseas. Previously, Jones told us, "I turned down two offers to play overseas in Jerusalem and in Germany. No thanks. I'm fine with money. Since I was 5 years old, playing in the NBA was my dream."

On August 19, 2011, Kaufmann Sports Management Group, LLC (KSMG) announced (via its Facebook page) that it had signed Dallas Mavericks Guard Dominique Jones as a client. He has become KSMG’s first basketball client. Jones will be represented by KSMG for marketing purposes, while he will continue to be represented by Mike Hodges for team contracts. Hodges has represented Jones since he left the University of South Florida (USF) after his junior year. Dominique Jones was selected by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 1st round (#25 overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft. The Mavericks quickly purchased that pick from the Grizzlies and made Jones a part of what would become the 2011 NBA Champions. Sports Agent Blog

Former USF player Dominique Jones had his rookie season in the NBA cut short due to a stress fracture in his foot, but he'll still collect a ring/belt/bauble/small private island from Mark Cuban for winning a championship with the Dallas Mavericks this year. And to further celebrate the achievement, DoJo decided that it would be a killer idea to get the Larry O'Brien trophy tattooed on his neck. Jason Terry already tattooed the O'Brien trophy on his bicep before the season, so maybe it's the start of a trend. Picture of the tattoo after the jump. (Safe for work, but maybe a little creepy.)
