Tuesday, Alan Griffin announced he would explore his options, as well. Griffin was the team’s leading scorer off the bench, averaging 8.9 points per game for Brad Underwood’s squad.
Jones appeared in 10 games for the Fighting Illini in the 2019-20 season, recording just 53 minutes of action. He averaged 0.9 points and 0.8 rebounds per game for the season.
It’s unclear if Jones has a specific destination in mind. He is a former four-star prospect.
