Jerret, 6-foot-10, was originally a second-round draft pick for the Portland Trail Blazers and played for the Beijing Ducks. Moreover, Williams, 6-foot-3, averaged 21.4 points per game during his senior year at Northeastern University. Jones, 6-foot-4 and Beverly, 6-foot-8, are familiar with Cleveland basketball, as both have previously played for the Canton Charge, Clevelands D-League affiliate
