   Chinese Basketball Association Imports, 2010/11, Again

Fred Jones - 14 games, 28.2 mpg, 12.5 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 4.6 apg, 1.5 spg, 0.8 bpg, 2.1 TOpg, 29% 3PT, 82% FT

Last year's imports were former NBA players, David Harrison and Smush Parker. The duo stayed for the whole season, providing the kind of stability that is always needed (and that, as seen above, bloody helps). To open this season, Guangdong were set to replace Parker with Harrison's former Pacers team mate, Fred Jones, whilst keeping Harrison as their centre. However, Harrison broke his leg in the preseason, and has not played all season. Guangdong therefore played the first 13 games with Jones as their only import.

Guangdong went 10-3 in those 13 games before bringing in ex-NBA and Euroleague forward Haislip, who has starred offensively both inside and outside with his James Singleton-like efficiency. They were initially going to sign Ike Diogu, but the L.A. Clippers beat them to it. Haislip and Jones played only game together before Jones was replaced by Hudson, from whom the Washington Wizards had finally moved on. [Jones has not signed elsewhere since, and, by all accounts, has lost his athleticism.]

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 35

- Fred Jones

Fred Jones has spent the season with Angellico Biella in Serie A, where he has averaged 12.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in Serie A play. He missed a couple of months due to injury, returned to play in January, but has missed the last two months with another injury. In that time, Jones called a radio show to announce his desire to take the open Oregon University job, and when you consider that he turned 31 a couple of weeks ago, it's perhaps not as surprising as it was. At that age, you have to be looking forwards.

   Bookkeeping The Retired Guys, 2013 Edition

Fred Jones - Jones has established a social media venture purely for former NBA players, Player Population.com. It's fine in theory, but I'm not sure of what the advantage is to it over existing social media. Also, I suspect a majority of NBA players use social media like they do now largely for the female fans it brings, which an exclusive club would not offer. Nevertheless, good luck.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
