ANALYSIS: The questions surrounding Jones' game concern his offensive abilities. In college, he was considered one of the best defensive players in the country. Jones is a physical, aggressive defender with outstanding lateral quickness. Outside shooting and ball-handling are the biggest weaknesses in Jones' game, but he did play well at the pre-draft Portsmouth Invitational Tournament. He was named to the All-Portsmouth First Team, and he averaged 14 points, 5 rebounds, two steals and one block per game. As a senior, Jones averaged 10.4 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. Jones is an excellent offensive rebounder for his size and led Washington in rebounding his junior year with 5.6 rebounds per game. His 50-percent shooting percentage in his college career belies the fact that he is not an accomplished outside shooter. In college, he was able to utilize his athleticism and strong finishing ability to score a lot of points in transition and inside the paint. Jones was a 37 percent three-point shooter in his college career. Although he is a hard nosed defender, he is also foul-prone, fouling out of 29 games his college career. Jones is not a big-time scorer, and the 11.2 points he averaged both his sophomore and junior seasons were his best scoring seasons. He is capable of playing small forward, but shooting guard would be where ends up playing because of his lack of size. His defensive prowess will likely get him a look in an NBA camp, but his perimeter game could hinder his ability to stick.
