Charge's Kevin Jones Heads to Philippines
Canton Charge F Kevin Jones has opted to accept a buyout and play with the San Miguel Beermen of the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) in the Philippines.
"We would like to thank Kevin for all of the hard work and dedication he showed over his two seasons here with the Charge," said Cavaliers Director of Development League Operations Mike Gansey. "He is a talented player, great person and we wish him the best of luck in his decision to go play overseas."
