Boston.com / Sports / Basketball / Celtics / Celtics' Jones is keeping up (728 words)
One new addition of particular interest is Jumaine Jones, who came to the Celtics this summer in a sign-and-trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers for point guard J.R. Bremer, center Bruno Sundov, and a conditional second-round draft choice.
Jones, a 6-foot-8-inch, 218-pounder starting his fifth NBA season, acquired to provide some depth in the frontcourt, hit long shots from the corners yesterday, drove inside, and jammed up the green-shirted veterans with some dogged defensive play.
Jones was the leading scorer among the Cavaliers' bench players last season, setting career highs in minutes, field goals attempted and made, 3-pointers attempted and made, and free throws.
NBA DRAFT NOTE (643 words)
Last year, Jones outwardly criticized his coaching staff at Georgia for the way he was used and made threats to turn pro after the season if things did not turn around.
Jones' game is superior in the sense that he has a great balance to what he does.
Jones will have to continue to work hard if he wants to achieve that level of success.
