RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2012-13

Jones will be asked to spell Shawn Marion and likely draw a tough defensive assignment. His style of play allows him to do so but it doesn’t always translate well in fantasy circles. When Dallas is at full strength, there are just too many other options to make Jones a fantasy contributor.

2011-12

Jones is capable of filling in at both wing spots and will get his opportunities whenever head coach Frank Vogel needs to dial up the defense. He doesn’t have a consistent jumper, but has some offense to him, mostly as a slashing finisher.

2010-11

Jones doesn’t fit coach Jim O’Brien’s ideal shooting guard - a guy that can space the court with the 3-pointer. He can defend, which is in short supply in Indiana, but it’s not enough to earn him a regular gig under O’Brien. If the Pacers could find a taker for Jones, they’d trade him.

2009-10

Jones frequently started for the Nuggets last year, but don't let that fool you. He was in there for the occasional defensive stop, averaging just 18.1 minutes per game. He'll play a similar role for the Pacers, perhaps playing a smidge more.

2008-09

The well traveled vet landed in Denver after a solid summer league showing, but his value to the club is still not clear. Jones seems to believe he'll be in the mix for quality minutes. Others tend to think he'll be far down the depth chart getting the occasional 5-10 minutes during blowouts. We think the latter is closer to the truth, but ultimately it will take a full training camp and preseason to really know for sure.

2007-08

Jones was a late addition to the Celtics' training camp roster, and has only a marginal chance of making the opening night team. Even if he does defy the odds and make the final squad, he will hold no fantasy value this year.

2005-06

Jones, a third year guard out of Duke, got a bit of playing time last season due to the abundance of Memphis injuries. He responded with a few flashes of decent play, but still enters this season as the odd-man out of the Grizzlies swingman rotations. He is athletic and a good defender, which could ultimately earn him a bit of playing time on the now veteran-laded Grizzlies. Also, if the Grizzlies play more small-ball with Gasol at center and Battier at power forward Jones could see a bit more playing time this season than last.

2003-04

Jones' range is a big question mark, but he is athletic and plays stellar defense. He'll back up James Posey and Wesley Person at shooting guard.
