That quiet guy

Posted on 24 settembre 2014


Caldwell Jones, a rail-thin frontcourt player who helped the 76ers reach the NBA Finals three times, died Sunday of a heart attack in Decatur, Ga.
Mr. Jones, 64, was one of four brothers to reach the NBA after playing at Albany State College. He began his career with the San Diego Conquistadors of the ABA in 1973 before joining the 76ers in 1976.
Mr. Jones, who retired from the NBA in 1990, played six seasons with the Sixers before he was traded to the Houston Rockets. He also played for Chicago, Portland and San Antonio in a 14-year NBA career.
Mr. Jones averaged 6.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game in the NBA. His most productive seasons were in Philadelphia, where he averaged 7.2 points, 9.2 points and 1.9 blocks.
