Tre Jones: Shot Form Assessment
Jones jump shot is reflective of his experience to date: a point guard in high school that operated with the ball in his hands often that has become more of a peripheral player in the Duke half court offense. As such, his shooting form is significantly better on pull-up jumpers than off the catch. He does a great job squaring up off the dribble, and consistently has a soft wrist in these settings. As a result, he has an impressive 87 percent side-to-side accuracy on this limited sample of shots, though his distance control has been erratic. When shooting off the catch a number of issues crop up; his alignment if often poor, his elbow angle issues get worse, a few instances of significant elbow flare or guide hand issues, and finally his wrist is very inconsistent. As a result, he has trouble with accuracy in both directions when shooting off the catch, though the distance control has been slightly better in the limited sample to date.
