Pack It Up, Bobby - Again

Here's wondering if residences in NBA cities allow for ten-day leases.

Bobby Jones could certainly use a few.

As reported by RealGM via press release:

The Miami Heat announced today that they have requested waivers on forward Bobby Jones. Jones was claimed off waivers by the Heat on Aug. 5 after being waived by the New York Knicks on July 29. Jones, whose first stint with the Heat began on Mar. 12, 2008 after signing a 10-day contract, appeared in six games with Miami during the 2007-08 season and averaged 8.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 23.8 minutes.

And that's not even the half of it.

Jones wore the jersey of five different NBA teams last season, playing in anywhere from three to 25 games with San Antonio, Houston, Miami, Memphis and Denver.  The 24-year-old seemed reasonably productive, too, averaging 12.1 points and 6.2 boards per 36 minutes.  Not great, but certainly not awful.  This summer, he was moved from Denver to New York in the Renaldo Balkman deal and immediately waived by the Knicks, leading him back for a one-week summer stay in Miami.

For a young player who seems to at least have some promise, it certainly seems worth wondering why he keeps bouncing around so much.  What don't we know yet about Bobby Jones?
