2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Wonderful athlete who has explosive leaping ability … Is a solid passer often Jones would drive the lane and dish off to an open teammate … Owns a dangerous first step which enables him to drive past most defenders … Explosive leaper who can electrify the home crowd with a thundering dunk … Defensively he has the potential to be a solid defender as his quick hands and above average lateral quickness can frustrate opponents … After he passes his defender he likes to stop near the top of the free throw line where he can convert a nice floating jumper … Posses a strong body that enables him to absorb a great deal of contact in the lane which enables him to finish … Has become a much improved shooter off the dribble … Due to his athleticism he is a solid rebounder on the glass … Excellent free throw shooter … Has 3-point range on his jumper that once he gets into a rhythm he has the ability to make the shot with some regularity … Maneuvers through traffic effortless thanks to his supreme body control … Has learned how to take over games and dominate offensively … Possess a solid work ethic as can easily see the improvement every year in terms of production …

Weakness: Ball handling needs to be improved as there are times he doesn’t have full control of the ball … Height is a concern although he is listed at 6-4 he is more 6-2 ½ to 6-3 which will hurt his stock come draft day … When he is not playing in the open court he seems to struggle a bit as in the half court the lane is more congested … Wouldn’t be a bad idea if he made his body a little more toned as he is carrying some extra weight … While he gets good elevation on his jumper his perimeter shooting tends to be streaky which is mainly due to the fact that his shot lacks classic backspin … Has a bad habit of trying to over do it when going for the flashy play although to his credit he has toned down a bit … Confidence and consistency tend to waiver although this year he has clearly improved in those areas …
