Mike Jones in Argentina

Mike Jones (2003-07) has signed in Argentina (translation) with Peñarol Mar del Plata. The local paper says:
Monday morning saw the arrival in Mar del Plata of replacement player Michael Jones, who has the same name as another foreign player who had played for Peñarol at the end of the previous decade.

Mike Jones is a guard, 25 years old, 1.96 meters and 91 kilos, who graduated from the University of Maryland. When he left the United States, he tried his luck in Turkey (Mersin BSB), Cyprus (Apoel BC), and finally in Romania (Ploiesti Asesoft CSU). There, in the Carpathian league, in 37 games, he averaged 19.9 minutes, 13.2 points (59.7% 2-pointers, 37.5% 3-pointers, and 74.4% free throws), 2.5 rebounds, and 0.9 assists.

According Peñarol's managers, the player is a "stepping stone" toward the the future.

The team has a website but it hasn't been updated in 2 years, so don't look for any Mike Jones news there.
