Mike Jones playing for NJ Nets in Orlando Summer League

Most of the off-season NBA attention has been centered on the Vegas Summer League, but six teams are also playing in the smaller Orlando Summer League, including the New Jersey Nets, who added Mike Jones (2003-07) as a late addition to their roster:
Matt Walsh, the Nets' final cut last season, was on the original roster but withdrew and the Nets replaced him with forward Mike Jones out of Maryland.

Ekene Ibekwe (2003-07) was invited to try-out for the Miami Heat's summer league team, but he was released just before league play began. Here is a link to all of the Orlando Summer League rosters.

On a completely unrelated note, this is blog post #100. Hooray for arbitrary, big round number milestones!
