Incredible combination of length and tremendous athleticism
Explosive at the rim
Runs the floor extremely well
Smooth driving to the bucket
Ability to rebound and then lead the break
Wingspan helps his shot blocking and rebounding
Solid mid-range game
Still a work in progress with his all-around offensive game
Will need to develop a better one-on-one offensive attack
Free throw shooter
Summary: It is rare to find a player of Jones' height with the athleticism that he possesses. He does not yet have a complete basketball game but all the skills are there for him to be a dynamic NBA player which is why he should be a top-five lock this summer; possibly going first overall.
Player Comparison: Anthony Randolph. Potential, potential, potential. That is all we hear about when people discuss Jones' NBA prospects, and we keep waiting for Randolph to cash in on his potential as well. Both players are tall, lengthy, thin and athletically gifted, but still raw in their all-around game and not at all physical. Randolph has not reached that potential yet but if Jones does, he can be a very special player.
@PrinceKO I wouldn't say that, look at his offense in Washington - Jackson and Garcon are mediocre and inconsistent, Reed is often injured, they had no RB talent at all, and 3 bad to mediocre OL starters (Williams and Scherff are obviously very good). The niners offense isn't that good either, but McDonald and Celek are decent tight ends, we have a good RB (when healthy) in Hyde, and a few solid OL guys in Staley, Beadles, and Kilgore (when healthy). He's going from rags to slightly inferior rags (depending on free agency). I'd love to have Cousins here in SF, giving up pick 2 for him and pick 17 where I'm hoping we take McCaffrey. I reckon Cousins can throw for 4,000 yards and 25 TDs in 2017 in SF.
