Derrick Jones signed a two-way deal with the Heat and will report to the team and not the G-League affiliate according to Ira Winderman.
So much for the Suns keeping control of Jones after the ‘use Mike James to thwart the development of Tyler Ulis and keep three centers with one being Tyson Chandler’ strategy. We can’t wait to see the give 21-year old Devin Booker the acting general manager position he’s about to get. The Heat waived Matt Williams to accommodate the move.
Heat announced that Derrick Jones Jr. will be reporting to their NBA roster, will not start in the G League. Therefore, his NBA clock will begin counting down on his allowable NBA two-way days.
