Orlando Magic v Cleveland Cavaliers
CLEVELAND, OH - OCTOBER 5: Arinze Onuaku #21 and Mario Hezonja #8 of the Orlando Magic try to block Dahntay Jones #30 of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the second half of a preseason game at Quicken Loans Arena on October 5, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio. The Cavaliers defeated the Magic 117-102.

You don't see a headline like this too often: Former Duke standout fined nearly two-thirds of his NBA salary.

Say what?


Ordinarily that would be a huge fine, but in the case of Dahntay Jones, it’s no big deal: Jones signed a contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers just before the playoffs started and it’s pro-rated and he’s made plenty in his career. He’s in it for a ring now.

Jones has always been a feisty player and managed to pick up two technicals in the last 18.7 seconds of the game.

Those two T’s cost him 6K, but fortunately, LeBron James said he’d cover it.
