2. PG Tre Jones
After spending the early days of the offseason missing out on his older brother Tyus following his return to the Grizzlies, the Raptors would do well to give Tre a look. If San Antonio is committed to using Primo as their point guard of the future, Jones’ value will go down the drain.
Jones averaged 6.0 points and 3.4 assists per game last year, though he may have slightly inflated numbers thanks to the opportunities he received on a tanking team. Toronto might be able to take the diminutive two-way pest and work with him.
Tre Jones may appeal to the Toronto Raptors.
Jones is a complete non-factor from 3-point range in his first two seasons, and unlocking that may be instrumental in making him a consistent force at this level. Nurse has turned so many bad shooters into weapons, so Jones will likely not be a big challenge for him.
Jones has already shown he can be a nice finisher at the basket and a quality passer, which are two traits that pro-am standout Malachi Flynn has not shown. Perhaps a swap of these two prospects could be a mutually beneficial deal for both parties given their directions at the moment.
