6-6, 210

2002-03 Stats:
PPG: 17.7
RPG: 5.4
APG: 0.9

Dahntay Jones
Notes: First Team All-ACC
The Skinny:

An excellent athlete, Jones is a scorer whose offense has improved markedly over his career and is a more complete offensive player than when he began college. He has always been able to get to the basket with good quickness and his ability to score over others, but now he’s a solid mid-range shooter when pulling up and he can hit the three-pointer. He also has gotten stronger and can use his strength going to the basket. He has long been a good defender, and that may still be the best part of his game.

Jones is an interesting player to try to figure. His improvement over the course of his college days into a complete offensive player suggests he has good days ahead in the NBA, but he doesn’t appear to project as a first round pick. He may wind up being a steal for someone in the second round.
