Another Chance For Dwayne Jones

Dwayne Jones, a 6-11 rebounder and shot-blocker who played at Saint Joseph's University, has been hanging around the fringe of the NBA for several years. He has logged brief time with Minnesota, Boston, Cleveland and Charlotte, but hasn't been able to stick. He had tryouts earlier this season with the Portland Trail Blazers and the Dallas Mavericks.

Now, the Arizona Republic is reporting that he will sign a contract Monday with the Phoenix Suns and will be eligible to play two days later against the San Antonio Spurs.

Jones, from American Christian in Aston, played for Saint Joseph's from 2002-03 to 2004-05. Most recently, he had been playing for the Austin Toros in the NBA Development League.
