NBA Comparison: Trey Burke

Strengths: Smart, and polished point guard who sees the game two plays ahead ... Excellent in pick and roll situations ... Makes great decisions in the half court and open floor ... A great passer and leader who isn't afraid to take big shots ... Makes winning plays ... Can impact games without scoring ... His jumpshot has improved considerably ... Can get into the lane at will, and draws a lot of fouls, good free throw shooter ... Finishes well at the rim ... Has sneaky athleticism ... Big hands for his size, values the ball and is not turnover prone ... Runs a team efficiently, makes the extra pass, understands angles and recognizes match ups ...

Weaknesses: Doesn't possess ideal physical attributes ... More crafty than quick and not an elite level athlete ... Lacks great size, length and frame to add weight. Plays small ... Really struggles on the defensive end due to lack of great strength and length ... Gambles too much defensively to offset deficiencies ... An improved shooter, but still needs more consistency ... Not blinding quick or fast, will have issues finishing over length at the NBA level ... Defensive limitations will magnify at pro level ... Frame doesn't look like it can hold much more weight ... Lacks much upside ...

Overall: Jones is one of the more polished point guard prospects to come along in the last few years ... He's not as big and strong as Andrew Harrison or Emmanuel Mudiay but he makes up for some of it with IQ and instincts ... Lacks great upside and will be limited as far his NBA potential is concerned due to lack of great size and athleticism ... More than likely will never be a superstar but in turn likely won't be a bust. Projects as an above average starter ...
