Mavs waive Dominique Jones
Former first-round pick Dominique Jones has been waived, the Dallas Mavericks announced Saturday afternoon.
Jones, a combo guard selected with the 25th pick in the 2010 draft, never made a significant impact for the Mavs. He averaged 3.1 points, 1.8 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 80 games, including four starts.
Sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein that patience with Jones has been dwindling for some time. When the Mavs wanted to send Jones back to the D-League for another assignment with the Texas Legends in Frisco, sources said Jones balked, prompting the team to let him go Saturday.
