Jones is indeed a pure scorer, but also a strong defender. He averaged nearly 2 steals per game last season with the Panthers.
But obviously he’s best known for his scoring ability Jones shot 47% from the field last season and can score at all 3 levels, especially well from range. The 6-4 guard hit 37% of his shots from downtown last season.
