"Congrats to Tyus Jones for setting an NBA assist-to-turnover record."


  

          

Until this year, only three players with 200+ assists in a season had put up an assist-to-turnover ratio of better than 4:1.

The previous record for a qualifying NBA player was held by Terrell Brandon, who put up a 6.14:1 assist-to-turnover ratio, set over 15 years ago-- but he only played 32 games that season. The previous record for a player who also played the majority of a team's games was Muggsy Bogues, with a 5.94:1 back in 1990.

Tyus Jones SMASHED both of those numbers, putting up an absurd 6.96:1 assist-to-turnover ratio this season.

Good timing, as he enters restricted free agency this year. Secure that bag with high efficiency, Tre!

Not that it looks as great next to Tyus's NBA numbers this year, but Tre set a Duke rookie record for A:TO this year, even over Tyus's. His passing is definitely comparable, and Tre's defense was unquestionably better than Tyus's as a Duke freshman. He's also a little bigger than Tyus, so that's a definite plus for the next level.

The downside right now is the shooting, obviously. Tyus came into Duke shooting 38% from 3 and 88% from the stripe. Tre shot 26% from 3 and 75% from the stripe. Now granted, the 75% FT percentage suggests Tre should be a better shooter from 3 long term than he was this season... but yeah, this year, he was a liability from the perimeter.

Considering Tyus has only been shooting two 3s a game and one FT a game, I don't really think he needs to be as good a shooter as Tyus to still be as effective. He just has to be better than he is now-- I expect Tre to do closer to 35% from 3 and 78-80% from FT next season, which I think is all he'd need to show to be a lock first rounder. He's the better defender, he's got the same gift for passing/efficiency, and he's got an inch or so of height on his brother. Just like Tyus, you're not bringing him out to score-- you're bringing him out to create opportunities, and you're bringing him out to be a pest to the opposing PG. They're both the ideal guy to run a team with a couple stars on the roster imo-- they're looking first and foremost to help the stars, and they also make great decisions when asked to.

Gun to head, it's hard to ignore that Tyus is *already* in the NBA doing these things, and Tre is merely the potential guy, so I'd go Tyus, but if you need a guy *like* one of these two-- and several teams definitely could use a Jones-- then either guy I'd imagine would suffice and really thrive in that role. I think Tre should be close enough to as good as Tyus that teams will want him next draft.
