In a minor roster move, the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to sign G League player Deng Adel to a two-way contract and waive Jalen Jones, league sources told cleveland.com. Adel will ink his contract Tuesday, the final day for teams to sign players to new two-way deals, and is expected to report to the Canton Charge.
Jones did nothing wrong with the Cavaliers and everyone in the organization really liked him, including head coach Larry Drew. Jones averaged 5.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 13.4 minutes. He reached double figures in scoring twice over the last six games. But by rule, Jones started with just 34 days that he could spend with the Cavaliers and those were almost up. A league source estimated that Jones had just 10 days remaining with the Cavs before the team needed to make a decision between signing him to a contract or sending him back down to the G League until that season ended.
