NBA Draft Rumors: Perry Jones, Terrence Jones Fail To Impress In Warriors Workout

With last week's NBA Combine now in the rearview mirror, individual teams' pre-draft workouts are going to be the focus of the NBA for the next couple of weeks. One of the first big ones featuring top prospects took place on Monday with the Golden State Warriors hosting potential lottery picks Terrence Jones, Perry Jones III and Tyler Zeller.

The Warriors were hoping that one of the Joneses would show his ability to play the small forward. That didn't end up being the case, however, according to Marcus Thompson.

When all was said and done Monday, neither Baylor's Perry Jones nor Kentucky's Terrence Jones wowed Warriors management, according to sources. They're good players with top-level talent, sure. And both played well. But they didn't do enough to make the Warriors fall in love, which is probably what had to happen for either of them to be the No. 7 overall pick.

Both players still have one major question hanging over their heads: can they play small forward at the NBA level? Neither answered that question, at least not definitively, with their performance in Monday's workout, which means No. 7 may be too high for either.

The good news is that Zeller apparently was pretty impressive, according to Thompson. The best news, though? One of the six players the Warriors worked out was named Jet Chang ... and another was Festus Ezeli!
