The 6-foot-11 big man was selected with the No. 30 pick in the 2016 NBA draft by the Warriors out of Vanderbilt. He won two titles with Golden State in 2017 and 2018 as a little-used backup, then played significant minutes as a reserve with the Hawks during the 2019/20 season, averaging 16.1 MPG across 55 games (including 27 starts). Jones holds career NBA averages of 4.3 PPG, 2.8 RPG and 0.7 BPG in 13.3 MPG across parts of five NBA seasons.
Jones provides a little more depth up front with Anthony Davis sidelined by a calf injury.
