Jones is only 23, but as a four-year NBA veteran, he’s more experienced than half of the Grizzlies’ roster. He and Morant are close enough in age to be close friends, but far enough in age that Morant respects Jones as a mentor. The two can often be seen chatting and joking after practices, if one or both of them aren’t working on their respective jump shots. “(I’m) just trying to be there for him, support him,” Jones said. “Give him any tips that I know, anything that can help him speed up the learning curve. He’s already ahead on it just from where he’s at talent-wise.”
Jones said that all the Grizzlies “get along tremendously.” Training camp begins Oct. 1, and most players are already in town participating in voluntary workouts. “The thing that impresses me is everyone knows the goal, and that’s we’re one team trying to improve and trying to win a lot of games this year,” Jones said. “Everyone has the best interest of the guy next to them and everyone is looking out for the guy next to them. That’s what it takes to be a great team.”
