Still plenty of potential, but not sure I'd skip everyone else to pick him unless big athletic defense was a much, much higher priority on draft day.
So he's extremely gifted physically and mentally but yet he's on par talent-wise with a Stefan? To me, this smacks of an analysis based more on the fact Jones is the son of a former NBA player than anything else. In other words-not all that well-informed.
