With active hands and good lateral quickness, Tre Jones has been a game changer for Duke on the defensive side of the ball. His constant pressure on the ball handler disrupts the offensive flow for the opposing team. Jones has been a great PG for this Duke team. He’s also got a good I.Q. and a nice feel (5.7 APG and 1.0 Turnovers Per Game).

Jones is not a good scorer, however. His shooting numbers are 28.6% from 3, 48.9% on 2 pointers, and 58.3% from the free throw line. That’s, um, not great. His average physical tools limit his effectiveness in the paint so his jump shot will have to develop.

On the Bulls, however, Jones’ offensive limitations would be not as prevalent. Tre would be able to get Lauri and LaVine better shots than Kris Dunn has done. Also, Tre would also be a nice PnR partner with Wendell Carter Jr. Jones has done a good job of running the show at Duke and putting his teammates in the best way to succeed.

Tre’s PG instincts and tools as a defender immediately make him a better backup PG option than any PG on the Bulls roster.
