Jones, 26, was drafted by the Celtics with the 20th pick in 2003, the immediately sent to Memphis as part of a deal for Marcus Banks.
The 6-foot-6 Jones played four years for the Grizzlies, averaging 7.5 points and 2 rebounds per game last season.
Terms of the deals were not disclosed. The Celtics now have 17 players on their roster, two over the league maximum.
