Play in the Orlando Summer League begins today for the Oklahoma City Thunder. The league will last a little under a week and give the Thunder a chance to have some of its young and up-and-comers get on the floor together. One of the most promising prospects from OKC may not be participating however. Jones will be entering his second season with the Thunder next year. In his first season, he spent more time with the D-League Tulsa 66ers than in OKC. The departure of Kevin Martin and a year of experience under his belt may lend to Jones seeing more time in the Thunder rotation next season. Jones has often been described as Kevin Durant’s backup at the small forward position. A normal Thunder rotation sees Durant sitting 5-6 minutes each half, meaning Jones could realistically see 10-12 minutes per game in that role.
