"But in my experience when I was an agent, representing big guys -- guards assimilate better or quicker into the NBA than big guys do, in my opinion ... the speed, the strength, the rotations -- it's different. A big, young guy in the NBA -- takes longer. But he's doing fine. He's got the right mindset." Over three games with the D-League Warriors, Jones is averaging 2.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks over 19.4 minutes per contest. "It's gonna be hard to crack our rotation," Myers said. "But he hasn't played basketball in seven months He needs to play a lot more basketball. But we're encouraged."
