MILWAUKEE (AP) -Veteran guard Damon Jones won't be joining the Milwaukee Bucks after all.
The Bucks, who open training camp Tuesday, said that by mutual decision Jones instead would work out on his own and try to catch on with another NBA team. The Bucks said both parties would explore options to help the 10-year veteran reach that goal.
The 6-foot-3 Jones was acquired from Cleveland Aug. 13 in a three-team deal.
Milwaukee also received guard-forward Adrian Griffin and guard Luke Ridnour from the Oklahoma City Thunder, formerly the Seattle SuperSonics. The Cavaliers got guard Mo Williams from the Bucks, and Oklahoma City acquired forwards Joe Smith and Desmond Mason from Milwaukee.
Jones averaged 6.5 points and 1.9 assists per game and shot 41.7 percent from 3-point range for Cleveland last season, his third with the Cavaliers. He's also had stints with New Jersey, Boston, Golden State, Dallas, Vancouver, Detroit, Sacramento, Milwaukee and Miami.
