Dwayne Jones returning to the NBA

According to the Charlotte Observer, Dwayne Jones(2.11-C) will be released by Efes Pilsen in order to return to the NBA and play for the Charlotte Bobcats. Jones didn't adjust to the european style of basketball and barely managed to pull some numbers through in the 2 games he played for Efes Pilsen.

Jones graduated from St Josephs. In 2004-05, Jones was the Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Year, and a member of the All-Defensive Team for the second consecutive year. He ranked fifth in rebounds (11.6) and blocks (3.0) in the nation, and led the Atlantic 10 in both categories. Although scoring was never his strongest skill he is a formidable presence in the low-post defensively.

He was signed by the Timbewolves in 2005 and after a short pass via the Florida Flame he was traded to Boston and from there to Cleveland. In his last season in the NBA he averaged 1.4 points and 2.5 rebounds rebounds in 56 games.
