Kevin Jones impresses in Cavs practice, but likely not ready for game action

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavaliers waived Luke Harangody to add Kevin Jones to the team.

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott is impressed with rookie Kevin Jones but does not have a rotation spot for him yet, according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal.

Jones appeared in five games for the NBA D-League's Canton Charge where he averaged 23.6 points and 12.6 rebounds per game. He was ranked third in points and rebounds in the D-League while recording a double-double in four of the five games in which he participated. Jones had a season-high 31 points and 16 rebounds in his second game in the D-League.

Scott was "surprised that he played as well as he played" in practice but says that he would like to see him participate in a couple more before making room in the rotation.

The Cavaliers waived Luke Harangody to make room for Jones on the roster.

Cleveland is attempting to establish a rotation without starting guards Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters who are both recovering from injuries.
