    The inclusion of Jones in the workout is an interesting one for this early in the process, as multiple mock drafts peg him as a possible pick late in the first round. Typically Utah doesn't work out such players until closer to the draft.

    The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Jones averaged 11.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists for the Longhorns last season.

    Less is more for Deron Williams, who has thrived since joining the Cleveland Cavaliers midseason.

    In just over 20 minutes per game, D-Will has upped his true shooting percentage in his new role as a secondary creator. A reliable catch-and-shoot sniper, Williams still has enough bounce to attack an off-balance closeout and make a play.

    He's not a starter anymore, and he needs good shooters around him. But Williams can still contribute.
    That's what I was saying. He might be great as the back-up next year

    Milos Teodosic is a slithery ball-handler who reads the floor as well as anyone in the NBA. Already 30 years old, Teodosic's total failure to compete on defense and waning athleticism mean he's only viable against weak second units.
    I guess that is why the Spurs aren't interested. I'm guessing the Jazz neither. The clip is pretty impressive there though!

    [QUOTE]Mills' size limits his defensive versatility. So he needs a backcourt partner capable of checking either guard spot
