NBA point guard Tyus Jones spent the last season with the Washington Wizards but he may not be with that team for much longer.

According to Evan Sidery, Jones is “highly unlikely” to return to the Wizards in the 2024-25 season.

“Washington is working through sign-and-trade possibilities as they will now prioritize Jordan Poole and Bub Carrington in their backcourt,” Sidery wrote, adding that a deal for Jones could come together this week.

Jones put up 12 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 7.3 assists on 48.9% from the field and 41.4% from the three-point line during the 2023-24 season.

It was his first year with the Wizards and the team gave him more time on the court than previous teams.

For example, he started in 22 of 80 games during his last year with the Memphis Grizzlies but started in all 66 of his games with the Wizards.

A couple of years ago, Jones was talked about as one of the best sixth men in the league and was even in contention for Sixth Man of the Year.

His star power faded a bit after moving to the Wizards, partly because that team was so bad and didn’t receive a lot of attention.

But the truth is that Jones is a great guard and could add a lot of help to several different teams.

Sidery’s report states that the Wizards are going all-in on the combination of Jordan Poole and Bub Carrington.

That leaves no space for Jones but his departure could be good for Washington if they commit to a smart and beneficial deal.
