RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Yet another three-point specialist. The additions of Lewis and Allen will push him even lower on the depth chart.

2011-12

Jones will return to the Heat this season for his 4th-straight year with the team. Jones posted some fairly impressive numbers last season while filling in for Miller, but the addition of Battier could push him back into a specialist’s role.

2010-11

Jones is a similar player to Mike Miller – he’s got good size, but his best weapon is the three (just under 40 percent from long range for his career). He’ll have a limited role as a three-point specialist.

2009-10

Looking at the construction of the Heat's starting lineup, someone like Jones, who can stretch defenses, could be a nice fit at small forward. He took a while to recover from a training-camp wrist injury and struggled to adjust to a wrist brace, until late in the season when he shed the brace and hit 45 percent of his 3-point attempts in April and the playoffs (36 threes made in 15 games). He was coach Erik Spoelstra's choice at the three in the playoffs and could be a productive fantasy player as a three-point specialist, taking advantage of opponents' attention on Dwyane Wade. Having said that, the desire to get Michael Beasley on the floor more, and better defenders at the three (Yakhouba Diawara), means Jones is unlikely to average more than 20 minutes a game.

Signed as a free agent in the off-season from the Trailblazers, Jones joins a crowded Miami front court. James can shoot the ball from behind the arc with a career .399 three point percentage and from the line with a career .865 free throw percentage. On this team he's probably nothing more than a role player.

Jones comes in to Portland from Phoenix to provide some outside shooting off the bench. He figures to be in the rotation at small forward but will probably be played sparingly. No more than his career averages of 6.7 points and 1.2 threes a game should be expected.

Playing 20.3 minutes per game mostly off the bench, Jones put up decent numbers (9.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.5 treys per game), but was streaky enough to keep fantasy owners frustrated. With a more crowded situation at forward, Jones' minutes could dip, though he should still be one of the first players off the bench.

Jones could be a player on the way up. While he wasn't exactly an offensive force last season, scoring five points in 17.7 minutes per game, he demonstrated one quality that the Suns love: he hit 39.6% of his three-point shots. With Quentin Richardson and Joe Johnson gone from the team, Jones may be called upon to pick up some of the slack and fire away from behind the arc. His playing time will be limited at the outset, but if he can prove to be a solid defender and rebounder and still stick his threes, he should be given more chances as the season wears on.

The Pacers' second-round (and only) draft pick this season, Jones is a longshot to make the team. The Pacers have a wealth of players who slot in the shooting guard and small forward spots, albeit few who fit into defined roles. At best, Jones projects as an 11th or 12th man destined to spend much of the year on Injured Reserve, nursing a phantom injury while trying to get up to speed on the professional game in practice.
