Draft Notes

Mason Jones is one of the most electrifying 3pt shooters in the 2020 NBA Draft. The junior from Arkansas can get streaky-hot from outside and really make it rain. He also excels at drawing fouls and hits a high percentage from the FT line (over 82% as a junior).

Jones doesn’t have top end athleticism but his best skill happens to be the most valued skill in today’s game, 3pt shooting. He’s got a strong, thick frame and has done a good job of dropping his weight and improving his athleticism over the past two plus years.

He started playing basketball late in his high school career and has been on a great trajectory every since.

He’s a likely second round pick who’s outside shot should keep him around the league for a long time.
