The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed guard Dahntay Jones just in time for the playoffs. 

Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin announced the signing of Jones and center Edy Tavares Wednesday at Cleveland Clinic Courts. 

Jones last played for the Cavs in the 2015-2016 season when he came off the bench and helped the Cavs win the title.

The Cavs will sit LeBron James for Wednesday's regular-season finale so he can rest a strained calf and All-Star guard Kyrie Irving will likely sit as well because of a sore left knee.

Cleveland has been without center Tristan Thompson because of a sprained right thumb.
