NBA Free Agency: James Jones agrees to re-sign with Heat
Posted By Justin Doubleday On December 9, 2011 @ 11:55 am In General | No Comments
Jones is known for his 3-point shooting ability. He scored 5.9 points per game for Miami last season while shooting 42.9 percent from beyond the arc. Jones also won the 2011 NBA 3-point shootout during All-Star Weekend, beating out Celtics  Paul Pierce  and Ray Allen .
With Jones re-signing, the Heat will be have plenty of depth at small forward, as the team also cut a deal with Shane Battier  this week. Mike Miller  is expected to miss up to eight weeks at the beginning of the season after undergoing hernia surgery.
The Heat also agreed to re-sign point guard Mario Chalmers  on Friday morning, according to ESPN.com . Chalmers averaged 6.8 points and 2.5 assists last season but upped his points per game to 11.8 in the NBA finals .
