Updated on 1/23/21.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-1
Weight: 185
College: Louisville
Classification: Fifth-Year Senior
Birthdate: 12/23/1997

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:
Crafty scorer off the dribble
Fairly good shooter
Decent playmaker
Good rebounder for his size
Adequate defender
Above average athlete

Cons:
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Can be prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be undisciplined defensively
A bit undersized to play the point
Not an elite athlete
Old for a draft prospect, may have limited upside

Summary:
Carlik Jones is a tough, gritty point guard that can shoot and score the basketball, and he also can effectively run the team with the ball in his hands.  He doesn’t possess overwhelming foot-speed, but he tends to make sound decisions in games, and he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2021 draft.
