Jones did not play in the Cavs' win over Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Jones has only appeared in three games this season and has made a 3-pointer in two of those games. He can hit 3-pointers in a pinch, but it appears that he is mainly a body on the bench at this point.

Jones has only appeared in one game for the Cavaliers this season. He played three scoreless minutes in the blowout loss to Portland on Nov. 4.

Jones signed with Cleveland as a FOB (friend of LeBron). He could provide some 3-point support if he gets some playing time, but he is not in the current rotation.

Jones officially signed with the Cavaliers on Tuesday, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Jones hit on 45.9 percent of his threes last season for Miami, but averaged a mere 12 minutes per game. Don't expect much of a bump in playing time in Cleveland, leaving his fantasy value extremely limited.

James Jones has agreed to sign a one-year, minimum salary deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal.

This appears to be another signing aimed at appeasing LeBron James. Both Jones and newly acquired free agent Mike Miller were favorites of LeBron during their time in Miami, and it now it appears they will both be Cavaliers next season. Jones appeared in only 20 games for the Heat last season, averaging 4.9 points in 11.8 minutes of action.

The Cavs have pursued unrestricted free agent James Jones.

Of course they are. LeBron James likes Jones as a teammate, so that has something to do with it. Jones would only be an end-of-the-bench guy and would likely just come at the league minimum, so it wouldn't hurt Cleveland's cap space.

Erik Spoelstra was tight-lipped when asked about how much James Jones would play in Wednesday's Game 5.

A day after LeBron James publicly stated the he hope Jones would see more minutes, the 33-year-old saw 13 minutes of action in Monday's Game 4 win over the Nets (which was his series high). Jones went 0-for-2 from the floor while adding just one rebound and one block during his 13 minutes. When asked about Jones' role in his rotation, Spoelstra played things close to the vest and responded, ""That's where our roster is, with the versatility." It will be interesting to see how Spoelstra deploys Jones in Game 5 on Wednesday, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him in the 15-20 minute range.

LeBron James wants teammate James Jones to play more minutes to provide offensive spacing vs. the Nets defense.

Jones is averaging 1.7 threes per game in the postseason, despite playing only 12 minutes per game. "It's the space that he provides, and his ability to shoot the ball," said LeBron. "You can't do both when he's out on the floor: You can't help on my drive and try to contest the threes." Brooklyn packed the paint during Saturday's game, effectively reducing LeBron to a jump shooter over the final three quarters, and it will be interesting to see if coach Erik Spoelstra takes LBJ's advice.
