Default Draft Profile: Perry Jones

Born: September 24, 1991
From: Duncanville, TX
University: Baylor

Height: 6'11"
Weight: 235 lbs
Position: Small Forward/Power Forward



Quote:
November, 2009: The ESPNU #3 overall player in the class of 2010 has off the charts talent and skill but his production is no where close to what it should be. Against Bellaire (Texas Jamboree) he had two points at halftime and finished the game with 9 points and 4 fouls. Jones started the second half with three consectitive mid range jumpers before picking up his 4th foul early in the 3rd quarter that caused him to sit until about the six minute mark of the 4th quarter. Jones is a terrific athlete that can score anywhere on the floor. His upside and potential has NBA written all over it but before that can happen he must learn to dominate high school games on a consistent basis and prepare for life as a Big 12 player. Jones is a very unselfish player almost to a fault. He needs to play in attack mode more often in order to get the production he is capable of and the result will be more wins for his team. Jones is an above the rim rebounder and a coast to coast threat in transition. He can post, hit jumpers to the arc and pick and pop and make plays of the dribble with ease. Jones is a good area rebounder and average shot blocker. He has the athletic ability and lateral foot speed to defend position 2-5 in a defensive switch situation. He runs the floor with great speed and just wows you with some of the plays he makes except these great plays are few and far between. Jones seems to be a great teammate and team player but he needs to demand the ball and dominate the game the way we have seen him do at times.
Perry Jones 2010 Basketball Recruiting Profile - ESPN

Quote:
Simply put, no prospect in the 2010 high school class displays more NBA potential than Baylor commit Perry Jones (#12 Scout, #6 Rivals, #3 ESPN). Right off the bat, Jones wows you with his terrific physical attributes—standing 6-10 or 6-11, with a great frame, long arms and incredible athleticism. Jones runs the floor like a deer, explodes off the ground as if he has a personal trampoline at his disposal, and is extremely fluid and reactive to everything that goes on around him.

Skill-wise, there is quite a bit to like here as well. We regularly saw Jones grab a rebound and then handle the ball up-court himself, often weaving in and out of traffic before dishing off a perfectly timed no-look pass right into the path of a teammate streaking towards the basket. He also has a very nice jump-shot, showing streaky range out to the 3-point line, but with the type of touch and mechanics that lead you to believe that he can develop this part of his game into a real weapon in time.

When attacking the rim in the half-court, Jones displays an excellent first step and is capable of getting to the basket in two long strides, sometimes mixing in some very nice spins and pivot moves, often starting off a sharp crossover. Once he’s inside the paint, he finishes with the greatest of ease, typically in highlight reel fashion. Jones is certain to be a fixture many a highlight reel, as he has slamdunk contest-caliber leaping ability. His teammates regularly just throw lobs in the general direction of the rim, knowing that Jones will find a way to go get the ball and hammer it home.

NBA Comparison: Tracy McGrady/Anthony Randolph

Strengths: Has incredible length for a wing player – has a 7’2.5” wingspan ... His NBA position is definitely on the wing as his perimeter skills - notably ball handling, lateral foot speed and athleticism - are phenomenal ... He can shoot the three, or pull up off the dribble, but is much better when attacking the basket ... He loves to work from the top of the key and take his man off the dribble, getting into the lane where he can use his size ... He has a tendency to take on two and three defenders at a time but is great at initiating contact and squaring up for one-handed runners and floaters to finish near the rim, when he's not throwing down highlight dunks ... Jones shows an aggressiveness and emotional fire that scouts like to see in players with this much potential.

This T Mac look alike has super star written all over him but has what I like to call the "Tease" syndrome. He teases evaluators with future lottery type games one minute, then the next game he is like a deer lost in headlights. If Jones can show consistency in his unbelievable skills, he has a chance of being the top overall pick in the draft. You just don't find the rare package of skills that a guy his size poses, able to shoot the three ball of the dribble or spotting up, with the size to take smaller defenders on the blocks and terrorize them. He has supreme leaping ability with great timing to alter or block shots and the wing span of about 7'4, that alone will have opponents thinking twice about penetrating in his area. He has the ball handling ability and play making skills to some day become a full time wing player but is now a combo forward. My projection is, if he can put all his pieces to the puzzle together, he will impact the NBA for many years. At this early stage in development, he reminds me of a poor mans Anthony Randolph.

looks like an exciting talent but he sounds like an enigma. if he's still erratic come march i hope the Raptors don't touch him with a ten-foot pole. at this point we need to draft as close to a sure thing as possible.

Yes! I might not have said this a couple of years ago, but because of past drafting, the Raptors can't afford to not pick up a near home run player. If they were a team like Atlanta, Milwaukee or OKC, they could draft hoping that the huge "potential" 9.5/10 skill develops. Unlike Toronto, if he ends up being an overall 6.5/10, it won't be crushing.

Having said that, let's see how these guys look over their season....and hope no one blows out a knee.

perry has the potential to be a very Durant type of player on the wing.

Great ball skills, solid shooter, great size and wingspan

Yep.

Perry is a amazing athlete. I guess the question is how much does he want it. If he has the passion like KG then he can be a star in the league one day.

dont know if a can agree with that. KG plays tough and is a banger. Perry doesnt do that well at all. Perry is a much better all around offensive player than KG as well, and not nearly the defender

I don't see the skill level required to be a superstar in the NBA.

But, I still think he could be a great fit with the Raptors. He's a SF that plays big and can hit shots from the perimeter. I thought Marion was a good fit with the Raptors while he was here, if Perry Jones could play that kind of role I think he could be very successful.

Also, he's got great size, length and quickness. If he applied himself he could be a really nice defensive player at SF.

Perry Jones 27points(9-16O 9-9FT) and 7rebounds in a huge win for Baylor over #16 A&M. Jones also had a huge 3 pt play in OT to give them the lead.

Great game. Perry Jones and Harrison Barnes starting to break out. Jared Sullinger playing great all year. Irving still out. The freshman are starting to show the talents off now.

First game of the season

27points(10-14 shooting) 6rebounds. Played a weak team but a good debut to the year for Jones.
