NBA career

Jones was the 14th pick in the 2002 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers. He played sparingly as a rookie, averaging only 1.2 points per game in 19 appearances while playing behind Reggie Miller.

In his first start after the incident, Jones scored a career high 31 points against the Orlando Magic, establishing himself as one of the team's primary scoring weapons in the absence of its stars. 2002 NBA Draft - 26 June 2002– New York City, New York // * Note: The Minnesota Timberwolves forfeited their first-round pick due to salary cap violations. ...
