Damon Jones has signed a one-year deal with Napoli in Italy’s top division, according to agent Andy Bountogianis of Cleveland-based Mark Termini Associates.Jones decided to seize this opportunity to grab a firm offer in one of Europe’s top leagues as opposed to holding out for another NBA job, with numerous veteran guards still searching for roster spots.

Good decision by Damon Jones. I didn’t like his chances of getting a job in the NBA, and if he was offered one it would surely have been a non-guaranteed job that he easily could have lost in short order.

Heading to Europe was the right decision.
