The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed guard Dahntay Jones and center Edy Tavares, Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin announced on Wednesday from Cleveland Clinic Courts.
The Cavaliers are likely going to sign veteran guard Dahntay Jones on the final day of the regular season for the second year in a row.
Jones, 36, is working through a contract agreement with the Cavs, according to a league source, to take the place of DeAndre Liggins, who was waived Sunday.
James and several other Cavs befriended Jones and worked out together over the summer. Jones has been working out in Cleveland lately, according to a source.

Yes, Dahntay Jones will be coming to training camp with the Cavaliers. Jones, 35, a guard, was waived following the 2016 Finals triumph, but is returning for camp on a non-guaranteed contract. Some speculation about Jones' immediate future was generated this week when he showed in Santa Barbara, California for LeBron James' minicamp.
But Jones nonetheless shared a picture of the Cavs from James' minicamp at the University of California, Santa Barbara to his Instagram account, with the hashtag "defend the iron throne." That's what the Cavs are calling their title defense. Also, James inviting him to the workouts shows he's earned a place among the returning Cavs as a friend and defending champ, even if the odds are long that he makes the team this season.

The Warriors recently connected Wiggins with an Oakland doctor who understands issues surrounding vaccine hesitancy, sources said. The doctor explained the suffering and deaths she has witnessed in patients who contracted the coronavirus, sources said, but Wiggins remains unmoved in his decision against vaccination.
San Francisco requires full vaccination to be allowed indoors for entertainment, including large events like NBA games at 18,000-seat Chase Center. New York City is the only other NBA market currently facing such restrictions. League sources believe the NBA will grant Wiggins a religious exemption, but San Francisco has the power to override it inside the city.
Though it doesn’t look good right now, the Sixers continue to insist that their preferred outcome at this point is to bring Simmons back and try to work through this. Embiid has publicly stumped for Simmons and privately insisted they can turn this around if they simply get him back in the gym and around the team. Rivers does not believe this will be an issue in the locker room, using an example from his own playing days to show these situations can be rectified.
The Simmons-Rivers relationship has been one of many issues in question as this has played out over the summer. Sources with knowledge of the situation have noted throughout the offseason that mending that relationship would be one of the most important steps toward potentially making this work, even if temporarily, and there has been little-to-no progress on that front. Simmons’ buy-in has been described as “low” or “non-existent” by team sources in recent weeks, with the head coach and player rarely speaking since the season ended in late June.
Vogel hopped on Spectrum’s “LakeShow” podcast on Wednesday and shed some light on AD’s apparent physical transformation this summer. Clearly, Davis’ new look has Vogel feeling particularly optimistic about the upcoming season. “He put a lot of work this off-season into his body, a lot of work,” Vogel said. “We had a moment maybe two weeks ago, where he had been training at home and we had a lot of conversations about concerns we have with our team … And (AD) comes in for a workout, the first time we’ve seen him for a while, and his body looked imposing. And we all just looked at each other like, ‘We’re going to be really good this year. Just looking at that guy right there, we’re going to be really good this year.’”
A NBA team parting ways with its president of basketball operations a week before training camp would be remarkable in any circumstances, but the Minnesota Timberwolves’ decision to move on from president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas was even more notable for one simple reason; they forgot how to spell their own franchise name. In both a statement (which was quoted verbatim by several reporters, including the spelling mistake) and a release, they called themselves the “Timberwovles”:
