 MIAMI (AP) -The injury-depleted Miami Heat signed Bobby Jones to a 10-day contract Wednesday, becoming the fourth NBA team this season to put the swingman in uniform.
Jones played earlier this season for Denver, Memphis and Houston, averaging 3.4 points and 1.7 rebounds in limited action.
``We've been looking at him the whole year,'' Heat coach Pat Riley said. ``A defensive player, quick, can play both (guard and forward) spots. He just needs to break through, like a lot of these guys. Right place, right time.''
The 6-foot-7 wing player appeared in 44 games last season with the Philadelphia 76ers, and had career highs of 20 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and three steals for the Grizzlies against Seattle on Jan. 18.
Injuries have decimated Miami's roster of late, and the Heat have played their last two games with no more than eight healthy players. Jones was in Miami and eligible to make his debut Wednesday night when the Heat hosted the New York Knicks.
Jones said he's hopeful he can stay with the Heat through at least the end of the season.
``I didn't have this imagined for my second year,'' Jones said. ``But it could be worse. So I'm just trying to stay positive, stay patient and make the best of my situation. ... As crazy as this journey has been for me, I've been learning a lot of things.''
