13. Terrence Jones 6-9 250lbs Kentucky Sophomore PF/SF
2011-12 stats: 29.3 mpg, 12.3 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 1.8 bpg, 50% fg, 62% ft
Projection: Late Lottery to Mid first round
Strengths: Terrence Jones is a very skilled big man. He projects to be a stretch 4 in the NBA, and he also possesses the ability to put the ball on the floor and take bigger guys to the hole. He is a tough, rugged rebounder, especially on the offensive end. He is very athletic and long, tries to finish everything in the paint with authority. Has the tools to be a solid defender in the NBA.
Weaknesses: Jones is a lefty, and offensively he can only go left and use his left hand to finish. He really needs to develop his off hand offensively if he’s going to score consistently with his back to the basket in the NBA. At times during his college career, Jones would take games off and had to be ripped into or sat down by his coach. In the NBA he’s going to need to play hard every night. Also, he needs to improve his free throw shooting. He’s a great rebounder and finisher at the rim and will draw plenty of fouls, so if he can get up in the mid to high 70′s it would be good.
