PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -Three-point specialist James Jones became a free agent Thursday after deciding not to exercise his contract option with the Portland Trail Blazers.
The option would have made Jones a Trail Blazer through the upcoming season and paid him about $3.1 million.
Jones averaged eight points in 58 games last season. He had 91 3-pointers.
Portland acquired the five-year veteran forward last year on draft day. He can begin negotiating with other teams on Tuesday.
