If you’ve read me in the past, then you already know I’ve sung my James Jones praises from the rooftops. General Managers often win awards through the blockbuster trades they make. Taking a risk, taking a swing for the fences to move the needle, etc.
While awards and accolades are cool and all, the true impact that can elevate a good team to a great one (or title contender) lies in the ability to find hidden gems or diamonds in the rough. Reclamation projects if you will.
Jones has already made numerous bold moves with the Phoenix Suns roster in his tenure.
