LeBron James won't be the only player moving from Miami to Cleveland next season.

A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Heat free agent James Jones will be joining James with the Cavaliers. Jones and the Cavaliers agreed to terms on a veteran minimum deal for $1.4 million on Wednesday. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.

Jones spent the past six of his 11 NBA seasons in Miami. Last year Jones shot a career-high 46 percent on 3-pointers, but only appeared in 20 games.

He joins Mike Miller, who agreed to a two-year deal on Tuesday, as former James teammates that are following him to Cleveland.
