NBA Role: ATHLETIC SWINGMAN

 

A former 4-star HS prospect, UNLV’s Derrick Jones Jr. has earned a spot in Erik Spoelstra's rotation; young prospect w/ upside: FREAK athlete who soars (over the top) for flying oops, boards and flushes in transition – DJJ’s at his best when filling the break w/ a head of steam going to the cup; athletic lefty: must find consistency as a shooter, projects as a disruptive outside scorer if he can consistently spot up + score off pin downs; needs to add more counters off the dribble, slow the game down if looks aren't available (can get rushed); appears slight but doesn’t get bullied, holds ground defensively + can finish off possessions; minutes boost in Year 3 - slots in as a utility defender/slasher for Coach Spo
