2011 NBA Mock Draft: Golden State Warriors Select Terrence Jones, SF, at No. 11
Golden State Warriors Take A Shot On “Tweener” Terrence Jones From Kentucky
As a one-and-done freshman, Terrence Jones from Kentucky can be that franchise-changing forward for the Golden State Warriors.
Projected to enter the draft and fall to the Warriors at No. 11, Jones is a big boy with a 6’8” frame, 7’3” wingspan and weighs well over 240 pounds. Talk about a large freshman…
Jones’ upside can be viewed as unmatched by anyone else in the draft in that he is a versatile big man that can play either forward positions and plays them well at that.
He shows a lot of upside that may take some years to develop, but his dribbling, shooting and especially rebounding skills are well above average.
Needing some size to play along side guards Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry, Jones would be a great pick at No. 11, “especially if he shows the ability to play the 3 along side David Lee,” as Chad Ford puts it.
