Decent scorer off the dribble

Cons:

Inconsistent shooter

Can tend to force the issue too much on offense

Summary:

DeVante’ Jones is a strong, physical point guard that had a very good season at Coastal Carolina this year.  He averaged around 19 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals per game this past season, and he also made 37% of his threes.

He is an aggressive scorer that can make shots in a variety of ways, and he is also adept at drawing fouls upon his defenders.  Sometimes though, he can try to force the issue too much, which can lead to misses and turnovers.  After having an up and down season at Michigan, he played well at the 2022 Portsmouth Invitational, and he currently projects to be a borderline second round candidate in the 2022 draft.
