Cinq Reves add veteran center Jones

Staff Report

Veteran center Jonathan Jones, whose professional career has included stops in the now-defunct CBA, Germany, Finland, Cyprus, Israel and South Korea, will play for the expansion Tokyo Cinq Reves this season. The bj-league team made the announcement on Monday.

Last season, the 211-cm Jones played for Jaszberenyi KSE in Hungarian League and for the Saigon Heat, averaging 21.9 points (third-best scorer), 12.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 21 games for the Vietnamese club in the fledgling ASEAN Basketball League.

Jones, 33, attended little-known Barat College in Lake Forest, Illinois, near Chicago. The NAIA institute of higher learning closed its doors in 2005. Jones was a second-team NAIA All-American in 2002.

In other league news, guard Jermaine Boyette, a Weber State product who averaged 14.2 ppg for the Kyoto Hannaryz in 2011-12, has returned to the Western Conference club, joining a strong rotation that includes guard Yu Okada, forwards David Palmer and Gyno Pomare and ex-NBA center Marcus Cousin.
