I don't really care. He is everything I look for in a great role player. No tweener, perfect height for the swingman position and plays his role extremely well. No jack of all trades master of none. Jack of one trade, master of that one trade. And if that one trade is defensive stopper, sign me up. With the right coaching, his shooting mechanics and offense can be improved on quite easily. We have that coaching staff and Jones seems to have the attitude to keep improving.
He's got the right tools, the right attitude, the right physique. I'll gladly pass on the rest of the raw, brimming-with-potential youngsters/tweeners in the 2nd round and go for the blue-collar, non-flashy defensive stopper who can only play one role and one position but plays those exceptionally well.
But then, I'm biased. He is absolutely everything I want in a role player and I haven't wanted to draft one player this badly in years. IMO even as an early 2nd rounder (or at #30) he will prove to be a steal.
