Flip Saunders, the front office leader at the time, opted to trade back into the first round on NBA Draft night to acquire the rights for Jones. In 68 games this past season, Jones averaged 6.9 points and 4.8 assists per game while shooting 41.5 percent from the field.

He started 23 games with Jeff Teague plagued by injury for much of the season.
