guys has been in and out of the NBA for several years but has nice size (6-11, 250 lbs) and is a great rebounder,shot blocker, and is athletic. do you guys think he's worth a 10 day contract or no?

Maybe, but we'll still get comparable contribution.

We had Dwayne Jones. He was horrible back then, and has been pretty much out of the NBA since. Not terribly impressed.

I actually liked Jones a lot better than guys like Mikki Moore.  I'm surprised he didn't stick in the league as an end of the bench guy.

I don't think Danny Ainge can afford a roster spot on a third string center who can't beat Jason Collins out for playing time.

Roster spots in short supply now with all the injuries. I think the team needs someone who offers more than Dwayne Jones.

Sorry I don't think when he averages 2 RPG that he's a great rebounder.  If he was great at anything he would still be in the league at his siz and since he's not.....

i would give him another chance. He got like a zero chance when we had him before in his career

He is everything we are looking for , except FT

But Danny can't greedy right now. Jones is basically a better Ryan Hollins. Will do his share of dirty work underneath, has a good wingspan, vertical leap and is not a bad passer.

Give him a 10 day imo. Last nbdl game he got 16 rebounds. Someones going to give him a shot if we don't.
Surprising players happen all the time -- that's why they're called surprises.

I tend to agree, though I do like Jones.
Jones is a pure C. Not a big position of need for the team. If, heaven forbid, we get an injury at that position then Jones is a possibility.
