Jones was released by the Mavericks after he refused to be sent down to their D-League affiliate, the Texas Legends. The Armor scooped up the 24-year old former University of South Florida star as soon as possible
The Springfield Armor made a minor move in recent days as they claimed shooting Dominique Jones from the Dallas Mavericks after the USF-grad and Grizzlies draft pick was released by Dallas after refusing a D-League assignment. Picked 25th in the 2010 NBA Draft by Memphis, just one spot after Damion James was selected, Jones was a high-scorer at South Florida, averaging 21.4 points on 45 percent shooting in his last season in college (2009-10).
The move to pick him up by the Armor is a nice example of how the Nets can easily use their partnership with Springfield to their advantage. Jones is a solid replacement shooting guard if someone on the Nets, like Joe or MarShon were to get injured, who can come in right away and score points in the NBA.
