Heck, I'm not so sure he wouldn't improve certain aspects of the teams play right now, if he was on the team.
We also have a longer window of opportunity than most teams considering how incredibly young the core of our team is. If Jones were a serious contributor in 3 years, our young Centers, Voracek, Simmonds, Read, Laughton, Cousins, L. Schenn, Grossmann, and Coburn still have many, many years of success from that point on.

Taking a young player like Jones wouldn't directly help the core of many, many teams because of their age, but in Philadelphia.... he would be well-timed to contribute to this group of players.
