Blair is an extreme exception.

And Jones is considered lottery talent and, depend on who you ask, high lottery talent. I don't now the exact "knee issues" he has but, if that turns out not to be an issue, and he gets mentally stronger, it's an absolute steal at 28.

Sure, he may not pan out, but right now it's a great pick for a title contender. You don't expect to get someone who can potentially help out in his first year on a team this talented who just made a trip to the Finals and had to pick in the late 20s.
