2010 NBA Draft, 25th Pick: Grizzlies Pick South Florida's Dominique Jones

Memphis GM Chris Wallace continues to pile up backcourt players. After selecting Kanas' Xavier Henry earlier on the night, the Grizzlies selected South Florida's Dominique Jones 25th overall. Jones, a burly combo guard out of South Florida could be a steal at this point in the draft. A physical presence, Jones is adept at creating his own shot and getting into the lane, although he needs to improve his outside shot. Still, those limitations from three-point range didn't prevent him from dominating the Big East last season, putting up over 20 points a game, as he carried South Florida to near-relevance (a major accomplishment in that loaded conference).

An underrated playmaker, Jones will likely have to transition to the point in the pros. With O.J. Mayo and Mike Conley already on board in Memphis, the Grizzlies backcourt is suddenly very crowded. Expect some more moves here.
