Jones agreed Sunday with the Suns on a two-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Jones will provide some insurance at center for the Suns in the likely event Aron Baynes heads elsewhere in free agency this offseason. The 25-year-old enjoyed a 19-game run as a starter for the Hawks during the 2019-20 campaign, but he saw his playing time tail off as the season unfolded. He ultimately finished with averages of 5.6 points, 3.7 boards and 0.7 blocks in 16.1 minutes per game across 55 appearances.
Jones (illness) available for Friday's game against the Nets. Jones was originally questionable due to an illness, but he's feeling good enough to play. With Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) out, Jones should see some backup center minutes.
Jones is questionable for Friday's game against the Nets due to an illness, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Jones may have caught the same illness that Trae Young has. More information on Jones' status may arrive following Friday's morning shootaround.
Jones will come off the bench Wednesday against the Cavaliers, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Jones has started the past seven games for a banged up Hawks team, but he's seen just 15 minutes in each of his past two appearances. Dewayne Dedmon, who was acquired from the Kings prior to the trade deadline, will get the start at center in favor of Jones on Wednesday.
Jones contributed 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 127-120 win over the Timberwolves. Jones had a pretty strong showing in this game, putting up numbers across the board. Unfortunately, his time in the limelight might be short-lived as the Hawks just revamped their frontcourt with the additions of Clint Capela and Dewayne Dedmon via trade. Jones wasn't exactly a full-time, fantasy-relevant option in shallower leagues to begin with, but these acquisitions basically shut the door on the hopes of any significant production when this frontcourt is at full strength.
