Terrance Jones from Kentucky is more in our range and would be a great fit imo

Enes Kanter would be a a great fit as well since we need a legit center... we are already clogged up at PF so no use for Perry Jones

I'm not loving Perry Jones rebounding. Dude was caught ball watching several times in last nights game.

good. Jones is a potential stud.

that size, athleticism and ball skills is a rare combination, and I fully feel his game is better suited for the nba than college ball.

Yeah. He has - from what I've read - a questionable motor.

Baylor Bears News - Sports News for Dallas, Texas - SportsDayDFW

This article states that there were 10 GMs present at the Baylor-Kansas game. BC was probably there to talk to other GMs as much as to scout Perry Jones.

Though, I am fully in favor of the Raptors drafting a SF or C with a high pick.

Fuck drafting another 7 footer. Enough with that. When was the last PG we drafted? Ultimately i want a PG or SF in this draft and then go after an established Center this summer via FA(Chandler, Gasol, Perkins, Daly,) or through a trade.

I actaully agree 100%....Not loving the idea of a 7' SF that cannot play any D cause he's not fast enough and can't play inside as a PF cause he's not big enough. I haven't seen enough of him and I'm trying to figure how he's projected to be 1st overall.

It's really hard to pass by a quality starting C in the draft. It's the hardest position to fill.

Also, take a look at a list of championship teams and you'll see plenty that had average PGs.

It's really not as important as some people make it out to be. If the team can move the ball well a great play making PG isn't necessary.

I'll take a PG that can push the ball up the court, play excellent perimeter D and hit open shots. Being able to break down the D single handedly is a nice talent, but is really just a bonus, and can sometimes even take away from teammates.

Perry Jones would be a great pick because he's potentially a guy that can dominate at his position, in that he has the tools to score over any defender.

SF seems to be where a whole lot of dominant players are in the NBA (I'm thinking of Durant, LBJ, Carmelo). SF is the new SG.

Jones is only 19 years old right now, He is 6-11 but has a wingspan bigger then that 7+. Not really big, just long.

Agree but he still needs some work. He has high upside though.

Perry Jones is a poor man's Kevin Durant. If I'm BC I'd jump at the opportunity.

Looks like a good player. Raps will draft TJ though.
