Jones was a top college basketball player
Disgraced sprinter Marion Jones has signed for Women's National Basketball Association franchise the Tulsa Shock.
The 34-year-old won three Olympic titles in 2000 but was later stripped of her medals after admitting she used performance-enhancing drugs.
She announced last autumn that she planned to join the WNBA and has trained with several teams.
She was previously drafted by Phoenix Mercury in 2003, but never made an appearance.
Shock president Steve Swetoha said: "She made some ill-advised decisions in the past, but everyone deserves a second chance to excel at something they love.
"The city of Tulsa gave a struggling franchise from Detroit a second chance, and I'm confident it will do the same for Marion. We couldn't be happier to have her on board."
Jones added: "I may not be your typical rookie in this league, but I'll still bring that rookie energy. I'm looking forward to competing against the best female athletes in the world."
Jones was a top college basketball player, winning the US national championship in 1994 with the University of North Carolina.
