According to the Charlotte Observer (http://blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba/2008/11/brown-shuffles.html), Dwayne Jones(2.11-C) will be released by Efes Pilsen in order to return to the NBA and play for the Charlotte Bobcats. Jones didn't adjust to the European style of basketball and barely managed to pull some numbers through in the 2 games he played for Efes Pilsen.

Jones graduated from St Josephs. In 2004-05, Jones was the Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Year, and a member of the All-Defensive Team for the second consecutive year. He ranked fifth in rebounds (11.6) and blocks (3.0) in the nation, and led the Atlantic 10 in both categories. Although scoring was never his strongest skill he is a formidable presence in the low-post defensively.

He was signed by the Timbewolves in 2005 and after a short pass via the Florida Flame he was traded to Boston and from there to Cleveland. In his last season in the NBA he averaged 1.4 points and 2.5 rebounds rebounds in 56

Efes Pilsen is a team in Turkey, for anyone who cared to know

I read on the ESPN ticker yesterday that the 'Cats are going for McDyess.
If they can pick him up, it would sure up the post. With his good shooting too, he might make an impact that'll turn this team around.

McDyess has a number of suitors. A lot of them playoff caliber teams. I think the likely hood of him coming to Charlotte is slim to none. A trade is pretty much our only avenue of getting a big man...and unfortunately it would probably cost us Crash.

Adding a big man is definetly good news for this team.
