2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Perry Jones


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 220

School: Baylor, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Incredible combination of length and tremendous athleticism
  • Leaping ability
  • 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



    Weaknesses:
  • Strength
  • Physicality
  • Stands around too often instead of finding a body to box out in rebounding situations
  • Still a work in progress with his all-around offensive game
  • Jump shot
  • Will need to develop a better one-on-one offensive attack
  • Free throw shooting

    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. However, he suffered through a disappointing freshman campaign which hurt his stock, ultimately resulting in his return to Waco. He is still a top-10 prospect based on talent alone and could sneak into the top five if he really emerges as a sophomore.

    Player Comparison: Anthony Randolph. Potential, potential, potential. That is all we hear about when people discuss Jones 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. Randolph has not reached that potential yet, but if Jones does, he can be a very special player.
