The Tre Jones File
Team: San Antonio Spurs
Draft: 41st overall pick, 2020 NBA Draft
Contract: Signed a 3-year, $4.19 million rookie contract in 2020
All in the Family
Tre Jones knows all about being successful in the sport of basketball. For him, a lot of that comes through seeing what his brother, Tyus Jones, a Memphis Grizzlies guard, has accomplished throughout his career. Yet one thing is apparent about Tre Jones. He doesn't seem to care about the comparisons, the debates, or really anything that tries to drive a wedge between himself and his brother.
The former Mr. Basketball of Minnesota seems to instead care mostly about his family and the bond the sport has created for them. A kinesiology student just like his eldest brother, Jadee, Jones looks up to him especially on the court. Jadee opted for the coaching route, and can often be found working his brothers out in the gym. Tre says that his brother really knows a lot about the body, which helps him in that offseason trainer role. Of course we also can't forget about the boys' mother either, who sacrificed and always put the three of them ahead of everything else, hoping they would realize their dreams one day. It's safe to say that for Tre and Tyus especially, the two former Duke guards have delivered on that investment made a long time ago.
