Damon Jones is one unhappy man.
At media day, Damon made it clear that he no longer wants to be in Cleveland saying, ''The message was very clear-cut when I left last year: I didn't want to come back and be part of a situation where I didn't have an opportunity to contribute. I don't want people to think I'm a selfish person or not about the team, but when I came here two years ago I thought I was going to have a significant role. I felt it was best to break ties and go our separate ways. By no stretch of the imagination am I happy.''
Here’s the problem, Damon Jones is not that good. Danny Ferry would be happy to unload him, but unfortunately there aren’t many organizations vying to get there hands on DJ. The market appears to be slim right now for 6’2 shooting guards that don’t play much defense. Jones’s better known for becoming best friends with star players, than anything he contributes on the court.
Things are certainly off to a rocky start in Cleveland as they look to repeat as Eastern Conference Champs. Anderson Varejao and Sasha Pavlovic are involved in contract disputes and are yet to arrive at training camp, and Eric Snow is scheduled to have surgery on his left knee today, to repair his torn meniscus. Good thing LeBron has broad shoulders!
