MILWAUKEE -- Other than all of the off-the-court indescretions that was going on with point guard Dominique Jones, the Dallas Mavericks just couldn't give him thje playing time he felt was oweded to him.
Therefore, the Mavs released Jones this past Saturday so the three-year veteran from South Florida could get a fresh start somewhere else.
"The playing time that Dominique probably deserves wasn’t here and available,'' said Donnie Nelson, the Mavs' president of basketball operations. "Hopefully that presents itself with another team some place.''
In 80 games for the Mavs, Jones averaged just 3.1 points and 1.8 assists in 9.3 minutes per game, while shooting 36.6 percent from the field and 0.95 percent from three-point range. He never came close to being the player who was a first-round draft pick -- No. 25 overall -- in the 2010 NBA Draft.
"We wish him well,'' Nelson said. "He's a good player and hopefully he can find that (playing time) some place else.''
