I'm pretty sure he's a forward

It's a TC deal. He won't make the team.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is a TC deal?

Training camp, he's just a camp body most likely.

Gotcha. Thanks. That makes more sense than keeping 4 centers if be is indeed a center like OP has in the tweet.

I'm assuming this is Perry Jones III, a long lanky 3/4 tweener with a bum knee that never got any traction and has been out of the league the last 2 years.

You forgot "one-eyed." Dude is a good story, but we still need a 3.

Thats a different baylor player that had the eye issue.
Perry Jones has all the god given size and athletic ability to be a star, but he's never been close to that level.

I thought he was NEXT when at Baylor. Next amounted to much.

Yeah I thought he was gonna be really good.

He thought he was Durant offensively, though. Should've gone more the AD route.

From a physical tools perspective, he was unreal coming out of high school. Too much of an ego and not a smart enough player though.

Here is a vice sports video on him from last year. Still wants to be scoring 20+ pts per night instead of just being on a roster:

Cant see him making the team, but he at least has the upside of athletic profile.

If Hassaan Whiteside could come from the bottom and play to his talents...

I'm rooting for Jones, but I don't really expect a whole lot.

Perry Jones came out of college saying his game most similarly mirrored Kevin Durant

Ahh, that was Isaiah Austin. Jones just has a bit of a lazy eye.

Remember when OKC drafted him and people said, "How lucky could they be...?"

It went downhill for them fast lol

There was a very brief stint a couple of years ago when KD was out and then Westbrook went down and Perry subsequently got placed into the starting lineup. We had a really good 3-5 game stretch as a starter and then he got hurt. By the time he got back, I think KD had returned and PJ was once again out of the rotation. That's the only real traction he got. I loved watching him play at Baylor, but he was never assertive and consistent enough.

Wanting to fap but would just be realistically making up an excuse to fap
