2012 NBA Draft Results: Perry Jones III Selected By Thunder With No. 28 Pick

With the No. 28 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder selected Perry Jones III from Baylor, who had a stunning fall from lottery status.

Jones didn't have a great career at Baylor, despite the team's success; the common perception is that Perry's uncommon gifts were largely wasted. Luckily, that has never happened in the NBA. It's hard to pin a prospect's NBA potential on how good of a situation he lands in, but that seems all too true here: He needs to have the right coach and system to make his talent really sing. Even at the low end of his potential, he should be a useful NBA player, though. Anthony Randolph is still around, right?
