Reports: Charge's Jones headed to Asia

Former Cavaliers forward Kevin Jones has signed with San Miguel in the ASEAN Basketball League in Southeast Asia, according to multiple reports.
Jones, who was not resigned by the Cavs after last season, had spent all of this season with the Canton Charge -- the Cavs' affiliate in the NBA D-League.
Cavs acting general manager David Griffin congratulated Jones via his Twitter account Thursday.
Jones is a 6-foot-8 forward who went undrafted out of West Virginia University in 2012. He played in 32 games for the Cavs as a rookie, compiling averages of 3.0 points and 2.4 rebounds.
This year as a member of the Charge, Jones started 37 of 38 games, averaging a team-high 16.9 points and 8.0 rebounds on his way to his first D-League All-Star game appearance.
The Charge (23-15) also lost starting guard Jorge Gutierrez on Thursday. Gutierrez signed a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets. Also, Charge forward/center Arinze Onuaku signed his second 10-day contract of the season with the Cavs on Tuesday.
Canton is a half-game out of first place in the D-League East Division and hosts the Springfield Armor on Saturday at 1 p.m.
