Tyus Jones NBA Draft Scouting Report


6-1 - Point Guard - Duke

A true play-maker with a great feel for running an offense.

Pros
Has elite level basketball I.Q. and timing. A true point guard who doesn't have to score to have a huge impact on the game (but is a more than capable shooter and scorer). Has deceptive speed and uncanny ability to find teammates.

Shoots the ball well from deep and hits at a high rate from the line.

Pesky defender with great anticipation and quick hands.

Cons
Does not have elite speed or athleticism. Not an overpowering guard and could struggle vs. bigger NBA lead guards. More of a below the rim player.

Projection: lottery to mid first round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
