NBA rumors: Tyus Jones available

Grizzlies point guard Tyus Jones has been made available in trade talks, leaguesources told HoopsHype.

More on Tyus Jones Trade?

Darren Wolfson: Suns have been most active trying to grab Tyus Jones from the #Twolves, as @Zach Lowe first reported. But others have inquired. New Orleans has liked him in the past. Nonetheless, the Wolves have told teams they aren't interested in moving him right now. Also: no ext. talks.
At some point, the tools and the highlights have to translate into something better than "smaller Rudy Gay." If Minnesota moves Butler or Tyus Jones -- and Phoenix has asked about Jones, sources say -- that would at least place Wiggins into some lineups with only one other primary ball-handler.
Jones had considered requesting a trade, but the meeting with the team defused that notion before it arose. And for now, at least, the Wolves have no intention of dealing him.
Are Thibs &/ or The Wolves considering bringing back Derrick Rose and, if they are, what does that mean for Tyus Jones? Jon Krawczynski: No question that they are interested in bringing Rose back. Thibs certainly heard plenty of questions when he first brought Rose in. But in that role as a combo guard off the bench, Rose was good. He played solid defense, scored well and was a great teammate. [...] There is also no question Rose is interested in continuing to play for Thibs. These last few years have been chaotic for him and he wants to play for a coach he knows and trusts. What does that mean for Tyus Jones? His playing time dwindled late in the season and in the playoffs as Rose’s increased. He certainly would seem to be a candidate to be traded.
