WHAT THEY'RE SAYING AROUND THE WEB
ESPN - CHAD FORD
There are few 6-foot-11 players with his combination of athleticism and skill. He can play like a guard and is an excellent ball handler for a big man. He can shoot the rock and has some nice moves around the basket. He can also get after the boards when he wants to. "Players are who they think they are, not who you think they are," the scout said. "Perry Jones thinks like a point guard, not a big man. That's where his heart is. Embrace that and he's going to be amazing. Fight it and he could be a huge disappointment."
COLLEGE HOOPS UPDATE
Perry Jones is the enigma of this draft and while few believe he will ever be the star his talent indicates, he is a do-it-all in-between forward capable of a big game every couple weeks or so. In fact, as a utility player on a team.
NBA DRAFT INSIDER
Point forwards of Jones elite level of athleticism are rare to find and play at a very high level. Jones has shown flashes of being a great mobile, perimeter big man. He is a very good ball-handler for his size and can take traditional power forwards off the dribble with relative ease. On the perimeter Jones can shoot the ball from the mid-range and extends out to the three. His length and athleticism will allow him to be a very good rebounder and defender in time.
