Jones really does check a lot of boxes. With both of them, if they can improve their 3 point shooting, I'm not sure how they can miss. Both appear to be outstanding ball-handlers, fwiw.
After thinking it over, I think Riller has a little better chance to succeed in the NBA. Jones is reminding me of Jordan Adams of UCLA from a few years ago in his style of play - relying on strength over quickness - and not having much of a wiggle to his game. He's in that "archetype", and it was not effective for Adams in the NBA. Riller does have that wiggle and falls in the Lou Williams archetype that is successful in the NBA. I'm not writing off Jones as much as I'm liking Riller's chances.
