Texas Legends center Dwayne Jones will sign with the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday for the remainder of the season, agent Joel Bell told RealGM.
Jones was on a flight Wednesday afternoon to sign his contract and is eligible to play in the playoffs.
A 29-year-old, 6-foot-11 center, Jones will give the Warriors additional size on the front line heading into a likely playoff matchup against the Denver Nuggets’ strong, athletic frontcourt. Andrew Bogut has dealt with injuries throughout the season, forcing Mark Jackson to give rookie Festus Ezeli 41 starts at center.
Jones had a five-year NBA career starting in 2005 with the Boston Celtics, and he ultimately was on three other teams – including playing parts of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Finals season in 2007. He has career averages of 1.3 points and 2.3 rebounds.
