Tyus Jones – 6’1, 184 lbs. Point Guard (Duke, Fr.)

Strengths: A heady point guard who knows how to facilitate an offense, find his teammates in their sweet spots and look for his own offense when needed. Coming off of a strong NCAA Tournament in which he was named the Most Outstanding Player en route to winning a national championship. Tough, poised and mature.

Weaknesses: Not overly gifted physically. Doubts about whether he can be a full-time starter. Finishing in the interior.
