Scouting Report
Assets:
The son of former NBA power forward Popeye Jones is a great athlete with impressive all-round upside from the back end. Can put up good point totals, log a ton of ice time and play a shutdown role if need be. Is a difference-maker. Owns a big point shot for the power play, too.
Flaws:
While he has impressive size (6-4, 208 pounds), he needs to become a greater physical presence game in and game out in order to maximize his physical gifts. Also, he could stand to work on his shot accuracy from the point so as to score more goals at the highest level.
Career Potential:
Talented, all-around defenseman with upside.
