The Houston Rockets are looking for a backup point guard in the NBA Draft, and they're reportedly targeting Duke point guard Tyus Jones.
According to ESPN Minneapolis 1500 AM and KSTP-TV’s Darren Wolfson, he will work out with the Rockets on Wednesday:
Apple Valley's Tyus Jones will workout for the Rockets next after the Mavs Monday. If #Twolves want, believe they need to jump Hou. at 18.— Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) May 29, 2015
Jones looked like the best point guard in the country at times this season, and he may be the best pure point in the draft. He sometimes faded out of games last season, but he doesn’t force his scoring on offense and is excellent at setting his teammates up. Jones was also the most clutch player in college basketball as he took over down the stretch in every big game the Blue Devils played in, making him a good option for a team in the middle of the first round.Back to the Houston Rockets Newsfeed
