CLEVELAND– “Champ” will be back with the Cleveland Cavaliers to go for his fourth NBA title.

The Cavs re-signed veteran guard/forward James Jones, the team announced in a news release on Wednesday.

“We’re very happy to have James back with the Cavaliers,” Cavs general manager David Griffin said.

Jones came to Cleveland as a free agent in August 2014. Last season, he appeared in 48 games and averaged 3.7 points.

“He is a Champion in every sense of the word and his leadership and professionalism over the last two years have translated with our team in many different ways that have helped us reach our goals.  ‘Champ’ delivers a clear reflection of what success at the highest level should embody and his contributions and commitment to our team are something we need and appreciate greatly,” Griffin said.

Jones played with LeBron James during the Miami Heat’s championship seasons in 2012 and 2013. Like James, he’s played in six consecutive NBA Finals.
