I think the Avs 100% won't be trading the pick, and will be drafting Jones. It's by far their biggest team need, and there's no way any team will offer them something good enough to pass up the opportunity to get Jones.
As for TB, I think they would trade a package including guys like Purcell/Connolly/Vasilevski to try and bring in a top pairing Dman way before they would move the 3rd overall pick (likely Drouin). They have the trade pieces to acquire a top pairing Dman if they want to without giving up Drouin, which I think makes sense.
