Dwayne Jones Joins The Bobcats

CHARLOTTE--Dwayne Jones, the former Atlantic 10 Defensive Player Of The Year, signed a few hours ago with Charlotte Bobcats, in time to be in the Time Warner Cable Arena for tonight's game against the 76ers, but apparently not in time to wear a uniform.

The 6-10 Jones, twice named to the Atlantic 10 All-Defensive team, was expected to arrive about 5 p.m. He had appeared in two games with Efes Pilsen Istanbul after being released by the Orlando Magic. If nothing else, he brings rebounding skill to the 3-9 Bobcats, having averaged 11.6 in his final season with the Hawks. He was an unselected early entry in the NBA draft in 2005 and was signed as a free agent by the Minnesota Timberwolves; he played in the 'D'' League before traded to the Boston Celktics, for whom he played 14 games.

Traded again, this time to the Cleveland Cavaliers, he spent most of 2006-07 in the ''D" League. In 56 games with the Cavs last seasonb, he averaged 1.4 points and 2.5 rebounds in 8.1 minutes
