Cavs Recall Kevin Jones from Canton


Just five games into his professional career, former West Virginia basketball star Kevin Jones has been called up to the NBA.

Jones will dress for the Cleveland Cavaliers when the team takes on the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday in Cleveland. Cavs General Manager Chris Grant announced the roster move on Tuesday through the team's official website.

In five games with the NBA Developmental League's Canton Charge, Jones has averaged 23.6 points and 12.6 rebounds, each ranking in the top four of the league. He has put together double-doubles in four of those five games.

Jones' 41.0 minutes per game are good for fourth in the league.

In his senior season at WVU, Jones averaged 19.9 points and 10.9 boards per game. He finished his career as the No. 5 scorer and the best offensive rebounder in program history.
