2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Terrence Jones


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-9, 230

School: Kentucky, Freshman


Strengths:
  • NBA-ready body
  • Athleticism
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Blows by bigger defenders off the bounce
  • Can post up smaller defenders
  • Knows how to finish around the basket
  • Strong Rebounder
  • Able to board and take off to lead the break
  • Ability to drive and dish
  • Comfortable putting the ball on the deck with either hand
  • Effectively uses pump fakes to create space or get defenders in the air
  • Three-point range
  • Length helps him be an effective shot blocker
  • Great hands
  • Intensity



    Weaknesses:
  • Consistency with his jump shot
  • Too selfish at times
  • Will need to learn how to bang with NBA power forwards without getting into foul trouble
  • Could polish up his post moves on the block

    Summary: Jones looks like a top-10 pick due to his versatility on the floor. He has already made a huge impact at Kentucky and looks like a player who is ready to contribute at the next level. If he can maintain the high level of play throughout the season, I cannot see him dropping out of the top 10 with the possibility of being one of the first five players taken in the NBA Draft.

    Player Comparison: Josh Smith. Besides the left-handed parallel, Smith was an incredible all-around talent with an NBA-ready build when he entered the league. Jones is an inside/outside threat who can put the ball on the deck just like Smith, and affects the game in so many different ways. Both players also seem to have a little attitude to their game.
