The Wizards have signed guard Jalen Jones to an Exhibit 10 contract.
Jones averaged 5.1 points and 2.1 rebounds for the Cavs last campaign. He is off the fantasy radar at this point.

The Cavs will waive Jalen Jones to make room for Deng Adel.
It was reported earlier in the day that Cleveland will add Adel on a two-way contract, and Jones is taking the fall. He was rumored to be in the running for a starting job because of his effort level but that never came to pass and now he's being waived. There's no fantasy impact here, and we'll let you know where Jones pops up next.

Jalen Jones was a surprise contributor for the Cavs in their 98-133 loss to the Pelicans on Saturday, shining in 28 minutes to produce 15 points on 7-of-13 shooting with five boards, three steals and a lone 3-pointer.
Jones has not seen much usage and you'll have to thank a hefty dose of garbage time for this outburst. Leave on the wire in most leagues. Even the deeper ones.

Jalen Jones made the most of his 14 minutes on Saturday night, going 4-of-4 from the field (all from deep) for 12 points while adding three rebounds, a steal and a block.
Garbage time was a factor here but the Cavs only played eight guys tonight. We’ll see if Jones still plays when Cleveland can call upon Matthew Dellavedova, but for now Jones is someone to toss on watch lists in 30-teamers.

The Cavs have agreed to a two-way deal with Jalen Jones.
Jones spent last season with the Mavs and is a former D-League all-star, so he's got a shot at minutes in Cleveland. Andrew Harrison was working as the team's backup point guard prior to being waived today so they're not exactly shy about throwing their newcomers into action. If you're in a 30-team league you can think of Jones as a watch list candidate.

The Mavs have waived Jalen Jones and Codi Miller-McIntyre while signing Donte Ingram and Rashad Vaughn.
There are no fantasy implications here as the Mavs churn through the end of their preseason roster. Vaughn has the most extensive experience of anyone here but will be hard-pressed to factor into the rotation even if he makes the final roster.

The Mavericks are expected to sign Jalen Jones to a training camp deal. after they waive Terry Larrier, according to Eddie Sefko of SportsDay Dallas News.
Jones was waived in July and but Larrier tore his ACL after receiving a training camp guarantee. The training camp guarantee will still be paid to Larrier and he will be rehabbing with the Mavs and their G-League affiliate, the Legends. Jones appeared in four games for the Pelicans and then 12 games for the Mavericks last season. Jones likely will be competing for G-League or two-way contract.

Jones was on a two-way contract,and while it's definitely possible he gets a camp invite, Jones won't have any fantasy relevance this season.

Jalen Jones came off the bench and played 35 minutes in Tuesday's season-ending loss, scoring 15 minutes to go with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and two threes.
Jones has had a few of these games and this is the first one that could've been projected with Dallas only having eight available players tonight. We'll see if his sporadic outbursts are enough to get him a longer look next season. Fantasy owners may have hit the jackpot with Jones' random outbursts but he fell well outside the top-400 overall.
April 4, 2018, 10:41 pmJalen JonesSF, Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Jones came off the bench for 27 minutes and a team-high 16 points in Wednesday's loss, adding seven rebounds, two triples and a block to round out his line.
This is the second such outing of Jones' career (and season), as he came off the bench for 16 points in 29 minutes against the Nets on March 17th. He's had three solid games off the bench with the Mavs, and they've all come when he's received 20-plus minutes. That's only happened three times, so while he's batting 1.000 on that front he's just not playing enough to be worth your time in fantasy right now. We're deep into silly season and anything can change with a tanking team, so while no immediate action is required make sure you don't forget Jones' name.
March 20, 2018, 11:01 amJ.J. BareaPG, Dallas Mavericks
J.J. Barea is not listed on the Mavs’ injury list heading into Tuesday’s game.
Barea sat out a game last week with a rib strain but the injury was not considered anything serious and he should be out there tonight. With Dennis Smith sidelined, Barea and Yogi Ferrell should be very busy tonight and look like very good streaming options. The team of course is tanking and Kyle Collinsworth along with Jalen Jones are also worth a look in deeper leagues. Jones played 29 minutes on Saturday scoring a career-high 16 points and he could be someone the Mavs will take a hard look at towards the last few weeks of the season.

March 18, 2018, 6:40 pmDennis SmithPG, Dallas Mavericks
Dennis Smith Jr., still in a walking boot because of his ankle injury, has been ruled out of Tuesday’s game against the Pelicans.
Smith hasn’t had the production to warrant ownership in standard leagues on the balance of the season and was only a top-150 player over the last two weeks despite some strong outings. He’s pretty safe to drop if you haven’t already, as there’s no timetable for a return and the Mavs would be pretty foolish to rush their franchise guard back in a meaningless season. J.J. Barea will likely stick in a bench role but makes sense as a 14-team add and a potential 12-team guy for anyone in need of assists. Yogi Ferrell’s score-first game is far more similar to Smith’s so he seems like a decent bet to take on some of that workload and is worth a speculative add in most formats. Kyle Collinsworth started on Saturday but Jalen Jones started the second half, and the usage there will depend on nightly matchups. They’re just deep league options.

Jalen Jones received 29 minutes of playing time on Saturday night, scoring a career-high 16 points with seven rebounds, a steal and two threes.
Jones has only played nine games this season and only four with the Mavs, but now has two decent lines since joining Dallas. He posted 8 & 10 with a triple back on February 11th, and while he’s a longshot to maintain any sort of fantasy value these lines mean you should at least be aware of him if you’re in a league with more than 20 teams. He started the second half tonight, and the team could try to get a better look at him down the stretch.
March 1, 2018, 12:15 pmJohnathan MotleyC, Dallas Mavericks
When asked if two-way players Johnathan Motley and Jalen Jones would see more playing time down the stretch, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said “We’re going to look at a lot of different things.”
The Mavs have nothing to play for beyond ping pong balls so it wouldn’t hurt to get Motley and Jones some action over the season’s final month. They aren’t likely to get substantial playing time but it’s a good idea to at least stuff their names in the back of your head if you’re in a super-deep league.
