The Dallas Mavericks waived former first-round pick Dominique Jones (guard) on Saturday. Jones, the 25th pick in the 2010 draft, averaged 4.0 points and 2.9 assists in 29 games with the Mavs this season.
According to ESPN:
Sources told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein that patience with Jones had been dwindling for some time. When the Mavs wanted to send Jones back to the D-League for another assignment with the Texas Legends in Frisco, sources said that Jones balked, prompting the team to let him go Saturday.
In October, the Mavs opted not to pick up the team option for next season in Jones’ rookie contract, making it clear that he didn’t fit in the franchise’s future plans.
