The Los Angeles Clippers plan to sign free-agent guard Dahntay Jones to a 10-day contract, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The Clippers had planned to sign Darius Miller to a 10-day deal earlier on Tuesday, but changed course several hours later to bring Jones back to the NBA out of the NBA Development League.
Jones, 34, had been playing for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, averaging 13.8 points on 50 percent shooting. Jones has played 10 years in the NBA, including six different stops. The Utah Jazz released him in training camp.
After scoring 30 points in a victory over Reno on Tuesday night, Jones will travel to Portland to join the Clippers against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.
The Clippers are determined to improve their bench and Jones will get an opportunity to make an impact. The Clippers are still working on completing a trade with the Boston Celtics to bring guard Austin Rivers, the son of Clippers president and coach Doc Rivers, to Los Angeles.
