2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Kevin Jones


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-8, 260

School: West Virginia, Senior


Strengths:
  • Strong rebounder
  • Aggressive on the offensive glass
  • Outworks opponents for box-out position
  • Constantly scrapping
  • Toughness
  • Inside/outside game
  • Three-point range
  • Mid-range jumper
  • Effective in pick-and-pop situations



    Weaknesses:
  • Lacks ideal NBA athleticism
  • Explosiveness
  • A bit undersized for a true NBA power forward
  • Not a threat to break down defenders off bounce in iso situations
  • Creating his own offense

    Summary: Jones has several attributes that will translate well to the NBA. He is a relentless rebounder and can stretch defenses with his outside shot. However, he is a bit undersized to be a power forward at the next level, which holds him back a bit. Still, he could be seen as a solid NBA role player and could sneak into the first round.

    Player Comparison: Udonis Haslem. Like Jones, Haslem is only 6-8, but has carved out a niche throughout his career as a strong rebounder and solid mid-range shooter. Neither player is going to "wow" you athleticially, but they both just understand how to outwork people and use their strengths to their advantage.
