Still, Jones delivered the line in his next meeting, with a delegation from the Portland Trail Blazers. “If I was to come there, I believe that me and Robert Covington could help the team a whole lot,” Jones said, adding that he hoped to be named defensive player of the year in the future. “On defense, I’m going to be guarding the best players. That’s what I want.” The Portland call lasted nearly an hour, with Jones engaged and asking questions. He appeared ready to commit in the moment. “By the end of the night, we’ll get back to you,” Turner said, ending the call.
Turner learned from other sources throughout the evening that the Trail Blazers were not bluffing. Jones needed a couple of minutes. He had decided to listen to pitches at the hotel rather than at his residence because he wanted a quiet spot to contemplate with his team. Now he had left the room and ventured outside for some fresh air and to consult with his father over the telephone. Minutes ticked. Turner was antsy. He worried that the Portland deal could slip away. Where we at? Turner texted. Lock it in. Portland. Jones responded.
