The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have assigned guard Dominique Jones to the Texas Legends of the NBA Development League.

Jones (6-5, 215) was originally the 25th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft by the Memphis Grizzlies. The Mavericks acquired his rights from Memphis in exchange for cash considerations in a draft day trade. Jones has seen action in nine games for the Mavericks this season.

The Lake Wales, Fla., native finished his three-year career at South Florida ranked fifth in career scoring (1,797 points), first in free throws attempted (615) and fifth in both field goals made (592) and attempted (1,339). He was named First Team All-Big East as a junior when he averaged 21.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.7 steals per game.

Jones led the Bulls in scoring in each of his three years. He was an honorable mention All-American and a finalist for both the Wooden Award and Naismith Award as a junior and was the only player in the nation to average at least 21 points, six rebounds and three assists per contest. He ranked second in the Big East (15th in the nation) in scoring in his final season with South Florida.

Joining Jones on assignment will be teammate and second-year guard Rodrigue Beaubois. Beaubois will be inactive due to a fractured left foot that has sidelined him for the early part of this season, but he will be in attendance for the Legends home opener tonight at the Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco, Texas. The Legends will take on the Austin Toros.
