Grizzlies trade Tyus Jones to Wizards in five-player deal

The Washington Wizards are acquiring point guard Tyus Jones in a three-team trade with the Memphis Grizzlies and Boston Celtics.

What It Means:

Chris Paul isn't expected to stay on the Wizards' roster, so Jones is in position to be the starting point guard and play a signficiant role next season. The Grizzlies are acquiring Marcus Smart in the trade and the Celtics are landing Kristaps Porzingis. Smart will now be Memphis' starting point guard to begin the season while Ja Morant serves his 25-game suspension. Monte Morris and Delon Wright could take a hit with Jones now in the picture.

Jones had a 17.7% usage rate last season and averaged 23.0 FanDuel points in 24.3 minutes per game, with 10.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.0 steals, and 1.5 3-pointers per contest. As a starter, he averaged 16.4 points, 4.0 rebounds, 8.1 assists, 1.8 steals, and 2.0 3-pointers.
