Tyus Jones would be a perfect fit for the Knicks

Another lottery team likely to fetch assets from its roster is the 6-31 Washington Wizards, with Jones as the leading candidate. He’s in the final year of his contract, so he wouldn’t be too expensive for the Knicks, and life as a starter on his current team doesn’t seem preferable to playing winning basketball off the bench.

Jones is much more efficient from inside the arc than Brogdon, and his defense will make him a Tom Thibodeau favorite. His current averages are 12.6 points and 5.5 assists on 58.1 percent shooting from two and 43.1 percent from three, and New York should absolutely swing for him if available.
