Video: Perry Jones III throws it down on Tyrus Thomas

Oct 17, 2012, 5:09 PM EDT

In three years, we may look back and say Perry Jones III was the steal of the 2012 draft.

Nobody questioned his physical gifts, but plenty of scouts questioned his desire, toughness and basketball IQ. If you watched his games at Baylor you saw flashes of what he can do physically — like the dunk above on Tyrus Thomas — but that was far from consistent.

Oklahoma City was the perfect place for him to land in the draft — a young but very professional locker room. A deep team. Screw around and they will call you on it, plus you will not see the court. We’ll see what happens, but in a couple of years we could see a lot more of this from Jones.
