Extra long, bouncy and quick off his feet, Kai Jones has all the upside and all the tools to develop into a first rounder. His activity around the rim is impressive and his open court ability at his size really stands out. He plays above the rim with ease and finishes most of his moves with a dunk.

At 6-10 he shows really good handles and he can run the fast break or take his man off the bounce in the half court set. He still needs to polish up his ball-handling but that will come with time. For now, he's far advanced compared to most other 6-10 players his age.

Jones a super quick first and second jump. His ability to recover defensively is impressive and he's a high level shot blocker and solid overall defender.

At this point he's very thin and he'll have to hit the weights hard and continue to grow into his frame.
