Damon Jones Signs One-Year Deal in Italy


Veteran guard Damon Jones, who made a habit over the years of calling himself the "best shooter in the world," is going international.

After playing sparingly last season with the Milwaukee Bucks, 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.

In his second stint with Milwaukee, Jones did not join the team until late December after a mutual agreement with the Bucks for Jones to search for a new team via trade. When no trade could be struck and buyout talks stalled, Jones spent the final four months of the season with the Bucks to complete the four-year, $16 million contract he received from the Cleveland Cavaliers in the summer of 2005.
