The Nets have signed shooting guard Dahntay Jones to a non-guaranteed contract, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
Jones, 33, played 33 games for the Los Angeles Clippers last season and will have a chance to get on the Nets roster, one that features 12 guaranteed contracts and six partial guarantees. Jones, a career journeyman, had his best season for the Indiana Pacers in 2010, averaging 10 points while starting in 26 of Indiana's games.
The 20 pick in the 2003 draft out of Duke, Jones can give the Nets some grit and veteran leadership off the bench if he makes the final roster. Brooklyn, a team going through an identity change, could use a guy like Jones on the bench, but how much will Billy King value a veteran over younger prospects that could flourish in the right setting, such as Quincy Miller and Ryan Boatright?
