James Jones Signs Three-Year Contract To Remain With Miami Heat, According To Reports

Small forward James Jones has signed a three-year deal to remain with the Miami Heat, according to reports.

James Jones, a key role player for the Miami Heat, will sign a three-year deal to remain with the club, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst. The deal is for less than $2 million annually per season, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Jones shot 42.2 percent from three-point range in 81 games for Miami last year, helping to space the floor for LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. His game is limited otherwise, but as long as he continues to knock down his three-pointers, he is valuable to the Heat. He is a career 40.1-percent three-point shooter, so it's unlikely he'll suffer a major shooting slump next season.

With Shane Battier and Mike Miller both on the club, Jones' role will probably be more limited. He averaged 19.1 minutes per game last season.
