The Cleveland Cavaliers waived former West Virginia forward Kevin Jones on Friday afternoon along with former Notre Dame guard Chris Quinn after having signed free agent Andrew Bynum.
Jones was one of two WVU players on NBA rosters last season, joining Devin Ebanks with the Los Angeles Lakers. Ebanks was waived about a month ago.
Jones recently was playing in Las Vegas in NBA summer league and suffered a concussion. Following the concussion he was dropped from the summer league roster.
Jones played in 32 games this past season for the Cavs, his first in the NBA, averaging 3.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game.
Jones was a member of the Mountaineers’ Final Four team that lost to Duke as a junior and was the team captain and leading scorer the following season before signing as a free agent with Cleveland.
