Why I Don't Like Perry Jones III For Mavs

Perry Jones III is a Baylor guy, a sure No. 1 pick and at 6-11, 234, has much going for him. Plus he played basketball at Duncanville High, just like I did. But my conversations with the man who coached both of us, my observations of him at Baylor and my experience as a professional athlete myself combine to send up a red flag. I hate to say it, but I hope my Mavs don't draft Perry Jones III.

Warriors Need to Draft Perry Jones III

If you don’t know much about Baylor’s Perry Jones, you need to start paying attention. He’s quite the enigma in a draft class loaded with talent and future all-stars, a high-risk high-reward player who, in my opinion, has the potential to be a top-three level talent. At 6-foot-11, 235 pounds, he not only possesses the size and athleticism to match-up with the 3, 4, and even...
