Summary:

Mason Jones is a smart, skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball.  He is a very efficient scorer that can put up points in a hurry.  On the downside, he’s not an elite athlete, and he will need to improve his defensive skills.  Right now, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2020 draft.
