Whereas Liggins had been the wing defensive specialist for all bar one week of the regular season, Jones was apparently to be the end-of-the-half possession specialist for the playoffs, with there seemingly being some difference between how he fills the role versus Liggins that made the switch worthwhile. [That said, with the Mavericks claiming Liggins off of waivers, something which Cleveland may have known was going to happen, perhaps it was purely a money-saving move.] Either way, Jones was not used by the Cavaliers, and probably never will be even if brought back again.
