Andrew Jones Draft Profile
The 6’4 guard averaged 12.0 PPG, 2.3 APG, and 1.0 SPG throughout his collegiate career with the Longhorns. Jones shot close to 42% from the field, 34% from the three-point line, and 78% from the charity stripe. For the 2020-21 season in which Jones averaged a collegiate career-best 14.6 PPG and 4.5 RPG, he was named to the All-Big 12 second team.
Jones excels at scoring on the move which is an advantage as he transitions to the next level. He handles the ball well and is a solid rebounder for both his size and position. He’s a solid defender as well and overall a sound athlete overall.
Jones can be prone to being a streaky shooter and has difficulty scoring when facing traffic. With an average of 1.9 TPG, he can work to be less careless with the ball and can be better disciplined on defense as well. Despite being a solid rebounder for his size there is always room for improvement, and sharpening his rebounding will serve him well in the long run.
