Looks like possibly one of the best athletes in the class. Raw skill game but as a freshman put up good numbers in 20.4 pts, .61 TS%, 8.1 reb, 1.5 ast, 1.3 stl, 2.5 blk per 40 minutes.

It sounds like he is the type of prospect that ordinarily would have come back and had a chance to be a lotto pick a later year, but after being ruled ineligible for grades near the end of the season, he decided to just declare now and hired an agent so it's for real. I can see this guy moving up draft boards
The only type of person more disingenuous than the person who's answers are not genuine, is the person whose questions are not

Looks like a great dunk contest competitor. Pretty hard to know if he can do anything else

Jones could be an NBA player too if he pans out.

I've loved the UNLV trio since the start of the year. Derrick Jones is going to be a good NBA player. I guarantee it.

Early on I thought UNLV was going to a good team so I watched quite a bit of him. He had issues with consistency, but was able to get hot and make big plays. He just doesn't have a real good feel for the game and it hurts him on both ends of the floor. He has potential shooting off the dribble too.
