Sign that kid. Please please sign that kid.
Waive Robinson or Gill & pick him up. We still sneak in under the tax.
This is a rookie SG who, per 40 minutes, is above NBA average for a wing in points scored, efg%, TS%, defensive rebounds, total rebounds, & assists. He gets to the line 7 times per 40 minutes -- as a rookie!
Jones has two bad stats: he turns the ball over too much (4.25 times/40 minutes) & he's only 65.1% from the line. He shot .820 from the line in college.
He's a guard not a big, but this is the Christian Wood story all over again.
I know you were a fan of his, but I worry that his archetype always runs into the same problem (See Russ, Wall, etc.).
Can he defend or play off the ball? He is sorta a ball stopper and not sure he can score & create well enough to overcome the turnovers and poor defense.
Would certainly take a flyer, but not expecting much if they did.
