Overview
As pure a point guard as you can get, Tre is the younger brother of Tyus Jones and he projects as a
similar level prospect. He might not go on to have the college heroics that Tyus had but he's a possible one and done first rounder or a two year college guy with first round potential.

Jones projects as a back-up PG in the NBA, and a possible starter in time.

Strengths
He's been training for this his whole life. Playing the point guard position is all that Tre Jones knows. He's a leader and a floor general par none and a guy who changes the dynamic of a team.

Like a coach on the floor who is always working to put his teammates in the right position, Jones can orchestrate the flow of the offense and set the defense as well.

He's an excellent ball handler who is crafty with the ball and has sneaky quickness. He knows how to get the defense off balance and out of position using head fakes and ball fakes.

A high level three point shooter who can score off the dribble or with the catch and shoot. 

Weaknesses
Jones has average size and average athleticism by NBA standards, and this limits his upside. He'll likely struggle to get his shot at the NBA level and he'll have trouble scoring in the lane.

Doesn't have the ideal size/length and athleticism to guard top level PGs.

Comparisons
Tyus Jones. Charlie Ward.

Projection: mid to late first round pick in the 2019 or 2020 NBA Draft
