He has 70 point potential quite easily seeing as he almost did it despite a freakishly low shooting percentage compared to his career average and is still only 25.
I have to agree. Coture, if signed long term, would be worth Jones.

However, I wouldnt trade Jones and then risk losing Coture in two years. Whats cotures contract status again? and does he have a NTC?
