Re: Should Jones start next season
There is no way Jones doesn’t start next season, baring injury. Jones. Murray, Traore are locks. They have proven themselves on the court.
Stats for Jones last season:
1.Points per game 10.5 3rd best to Slater and Murray
2.Rebounds 143 2nd best to you know who
3 Blocked shots 28 2nd best to Traore
4.Steals 46 2nd best to Murray
5.Three pointers 37.1% 2nd to Slater
6 Playing time 27.8 min per game 3rd best
Yes, it's true that if someone talented comes along they could get your minutes but Jones proved last year that he's a valuable asset based on his season stats. If he works hard and doesn't get injured, he should start.
If Jones comes off the bench he will be gone after next year. There is zero chance this guy comes off the bench. As usual some on this site are losing their minds over some of these new kids that haven't played one second at Long Beach. It is going to take some time for the new guys to adjust. Let's all relax and see how these guys look when practice starts in Oct and then how they look when the season starts in Nov.
he certainly could start -- but with a deep bench and if they play an up tempo game he along with other players on the bench will get plenty of minutes --
Agree, Jones should start at the 2 or 3 slot.
No way is Jones not starting.
at first glance -- we should have a very strong bench and hopefully we play an up tempo at both ends of the court -- press press press -- it looks like we will have a lot of pieces to move around with -- we should be at least 10 or 11 players deep next year
pg - 6' murray
sg - 6'3" marcus
sf - 6'5" a traore
pf - 6'10" stroud or l traore
c - 6'11" chayce
Looking at the depth chart, here is what I see. Several of our players are able to play multiple positions, so I may list them under more than one slot.
PG: Murray, Tsohonis, Hunter, Hart
SG: Jones, Tsohonis, Hunter
SF: Jones, Rotegaard, A. Traore, George
PF: A. Traore, L. Traore, Stroud, Ngoyi, Rotegaard
C: L. Traore, Polynice, Stroud, Ngoyi, Yan
Not having seen most of these guys play, but knowing the value of at least some experience, potential starting lineup:
PF: A Traore
C: L Traore
