Default Analysis of 2012 draft prospect Terrence Jones

Scout One: “He’s the tweener in this draft – so good at so many things, and not great at anything. Might have gotten too big. You look at him on top, and he’s got a lot of muscle, and that kind of forced his shot to change a little bit. Didn’t shoot the ball particularly well. But I think he’s a game player. Doesn’t look good in drills, but really knows how to play and he loves to play. I think he had a lot of fingerprints on that national championship.”

Scout Two: “Kind of a bastard size. Wants to be a 3 (i.e., small forward), but he’s really effective as a 4 (i.e., power forward). He’s got great dribble skills. When bigs try to defend him, that’s what he wants: ‘Come play me on the perimeter, and I’ll go by you.’ He gets exposed a little bit in the post, because he’s a little undersized. He’s a good athlete, not a great athlete. The buzzword in the NBA is, is he a ‘spread 4’? Well, spread 4s have to be able to make 3s. He’s not (Knicks sharpshooter) Steve Novak. But from 15, 16 feet, he can make that shot. So he’s still going to drag the defense to the perimeter. And he can rebound, he can pass. I think he’s a really talented player. At 15, for me, that’s a ‘no doubt about it.’ ”
