Overview: A veteran shooting specialist who is as well known for his vocal personality as he is for his jump shot. Has decent size, but lacks athleticism and explosiveness. Relegated to the role of shooting specialist at this point. Was actually a pretty versatile player as during his collegiate career at Houston. Spent some time in the minor leagues before reaching the NBA. Has flourished in clutch situations and is never afraid to take the big shot. Always quotable, Jones has transitioned from a locker room leader to a full blown disruption. May not be able to reconcile his differences with coach Mike Brown.
Offense: A shooting specialist on a team that found a more suitable replacement in Daniel Gibson. Three quarters of his touches come from situations where he has an open three-pointer. Spends most of his time floating around the perimeter spotting up and even floats to the outside in transition. Brings the ball up the floor safely, but isn’t a floor general. The leg kick gets a little bit too predictable at times. Is capable of shooting off the dribble, but is nowhere near as consistent as he is when shooting from a standstill. Seldom takes the ball to the rim, and rarely gets to the line. Tends to dribble from one wing to the other before reinitiating his offense. Good a moving the ball on the perimeter. Does a good job of coming off the bench for big shots.
Defense: Much better at guarding the point guard spot than the wing despite his lack of foot speed. Always keeps his hands up. Wont’ create many turnovers, but will make a smart foul every now and again. Will box his man out on occasion. Does a good job of using his upper body to deny dribble penetration. Doesn’t close out hard so that he doesn’t get blown by.
