McKinney-Jones coming back to Ants

Trey McKinney-Jones, who helped the Mad Ants to a D-League championship last season, is coming back to Fort Wayne, a source confirmed Thursday.

The move still needs to be approved by the D-League and FIBA, since he spent an early portion of the season playing in France.

As a rookie out of Miami (Florida) last season, he averaged 15.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 47 regular-season games for the Mad Ants and then helped them to an undefeated playoff run. 

He spent 14 games this season in France.

McKinney-Jones played last summer in the NBA Summer League for Miami and San Antonio and has also been in training camp with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Mad Ants play Thursday at Grand Rapids, Michigan.

They have released Marcus Hall, who was averaging 4.2 points and 2.7 assists, and Will Frisby, who was averaging 6.4 points and 4.2 rebounds.

The Ants just had too many bodies right now, especially after the Toronto Raptors sent down Bruno Caboclo on Wednesday.
