Make no mistake, Dominique Jones is still trying to find his niche at the NBA level.
However, after two seasons of not making an impact at all for this Dallas team, "Dojo" is finally showing signs that he has what it takes to make it in the NBA.
Even with Derek Fisher, Darren Collison and others ahead of him in the rotation, Jones is coming on as of late, even starting a few games this month for the Mavericks.
Jones' numbers won't impress a casual fan, but for those who have been watching him play this year, the improvement is noticeable.
Jones has always been a top-notch defender, and even though he still doesn't shoot the ball well, he is beginning to come on as a passer.
The former USF star is playing more point than he did the last two years, and this season he is averaging over three assists per game despite playing only 11.4 MPG.
If Jones can continue to improve his game and begin to calm down a little when he is running the point, he could be a solid backup point guard in the NBA.
