WHAT THEY'RE SAYING AROUND THE WEB
NBA DRAFT INSIDER
He plays with a very high motor giving it his all every game. He is not the biggest or most skilled big man in the draft class, but he makes up for it with his motor. On offense he is very much improved shooting at a high rate from the field (53%) and adding in a good amount of threes (1.1 a game) and free-throws (3.1 a game).
ESPN - CHAD FORD
Scouts like a number of things about Jones. He is a workhorse on both ends of the ball. He's got a terrific motor. Like Ebanks, Jones has an impressive physical profile, highlighted by a 7-foot-4 inch wingspan, which allows him to play bigger than he is. He also has filled out to the point that he can be an effective scoring presence in the paint. Jones has proven to be a terrific offensive rebounder, averaging an impressive four offensive boards per game.
A skillful player offensively who is willing to do the dirty work inside the paint. Strong rebounder. Improved every year in college. Plays hard. Takes good care of the basketball.
