Phoenix Suns choose to waive backup center Damian Jones

Another week, another round of trade rumors for Bradley Beal to shoot down, and Michael Holley and Michael Smith would like everybody in the media to back off and take the All-Star at his word.

PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns have waived reserve center Damian Jones.

The 25-year-old Jones appeared in 14 games this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. He was never able to consistently break into the playing rotation, falling behind Frank Kaminsky, Dario Saric and Jae Crowder on the depth chart.

The move was made before the deadline where contracts become guaranteed for the season.

The 6-foot-11 Jones also has played for the Warriors and Hawks during his five-year career. His most productive season came last year with the Hawks, when he averaged 5.6 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.

The Suns’ roster now has 15 players.
