DleagueDigest.com has learned via Solomon Jones’ agent, that the NBA veteran big man has signed on with Dongguan Snowwolf in the NBL, and will play the next 2-3 months in China.
Jones played in 17 games with the Erie BayHawks this past NBA D-League season after being claimed from the player pool on February 10. In 17 games (16 starts), Jones averaged 8.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks. It was his first NBADL stint in his professional career which includes 7 years of NBA service.
Signing to play in the NBL will help keep Jones’ game at a high level, while also earning him a paycheck. Jones will likely be considered for an NBA Summer League roster spot this summer.
Another NBADL big man from this past season (Tiny Gallon) also signed to play in the NBL following his season with the Delaware 87ers.
