Draft Destination: Milwaukee Bucks—No. 12 overall
Second slide, second Kentucky Wildcat. Don't worry, there's even more to come.
Terrence Jones is an intriguing prospect that a lot of scouts can't seem to figure out. While he played as a face-up power forward at Kentucky, he is most likely going to have to transition to small forward in the NBA.
Due to his lack of a position and sometimes off-putting body language, Jones is a guy that could drop to the low-teens come draft night.
I, on the other hand, really love what Jones brings to the table. Jones is nearly unstoppable when he wants to be. "When he wants to be," is the problem, though. Many times last season I saw Jones quickly rattle off 10 points in a row, either bringing the Wildcats back into a game or closing out their victory.
Yet, may times, I also saw Jones disappear for stretches. That could have been due to the amount of star power Kentucky had on their roster. Under the right circumstances, I think Jones could be a really valuable asset to any NBA squad.
I currently have him projected to the Milwaukee Bucks, which is a really nice fit. Carlos Deflino is a free agent and may not be returning, so Jones could instantly step in and take Delfino's minutes while likely being just as productive.
Jones's transition to small forward for the NBA should be smooth. He's got the perfect size and athleticism to play the wing in the NBA, and even though his jump shot still needs some work, he's going to be able to get to the rim with ease.
He reminds me a lot of Atlanta Hawks combo forward Josh Smith, and it's not just because they're both left handed. If Jones lives up to a Smith-like potential, then he will be a steal for the Bucks.
