WVU Alumnus Kevin Jones Shines in Canton

Former West Virginia Mountaineer forward Kevin Jones has signed a contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers recently.

Jones was in training camp this past summer with the Cavaliers before being assigned to Canton Charge of the NBA D-League. In the past three games in Canton, Jones has been dominating with 27.0 points per game average, leading many Cleveland fans wondering when Jones will move up to the big league.

The Cavaliers released Luke Harrangody yesterday, freeing up a roster spot that Jones is expected to occupy in the near future. The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that Jones is likely to remain in Canton this weekend but speculates that he will be called up to the Cavaliers soon.

This is Jones shot at the pros, and given the way he has dominated in the NBA D-League, there is promise that Jones can become a solid role player on a struggling Cavaliers squad.
