Dime: What is the funniest story you have from the process? JH: Probably when me and Perry (Jones) had to go through customs in Canada when we went to work out for the Raptors so we got on line and they looked at our passports and had us fill out the papers, everything was fine. Then Terrence (Jones) comes up and the lady takes him a whole different way so he had to go through the back and a completely different process. They had to recheck him and look and double-check his passport so it was really funny to see him go through that, and it took him 15 minutes more to get downstairs. Dime

Due to bad body language, Terrence Jones has been a player that scouts speculated would struggle in interviews and psychological examinations, but surprisingly according to contacts he has tested very well.

Yes, Golden State already has a starting shooting guard in Thompson. But that doesn’t matter, according to sources. The Warriors are looking for the best available player no matter the position, especially since the early favorites (Baylor’s Perry Jones III and Kentucky’s Terrence Jones) didn’t impress. Going best available leaves the field wide open for the Warriors. Ross, if Portland snatches up Waiters, could feasibly play SF because his athleticism figures to help him guard the position.
