Confidence gained from winning the NBA Slam-Dunk title last February was manifest in dramatically improved performance over the second half of last season, when he developed into a valuable reserve. He struggled mightily with jump shot and decision-making in the early stages of the season but as his confidence grew those problems lessened. A strong and willing defender, he has the combination of quickness and strength to guard either backcourt spot. Still just scratching the surface of his potential, he established himself as a solid player in his first opportunity at a spot in the rotation. The acquisition of Stephen Jackson will likely mean a cutback in playing time this season but Jones still figures prominently in the franchise's plans.
