Jones winding up workouts

Posted by Bob Condotta at 5:00 PM

Had a chance to talk with Bobby Jones today as he was waiting in the Dallas airport heading to Sacramento.

He was in Dallas after working out for the Mavericks this morning and is scheduled to visit with the Kings Tuesday.

It will be his second workout for Sacramento.

And it's interesting that the Kings are showing so much interest considering they have the 19th pick in the draft and that's it, having traded their second-round selection. Obviously, the Kings also work out players so they have a feel of what's out there in case they get involved in more trades.

Jones said he has had workouts for 10 or 11 teams and said everybody he has talked to has told him he will certainly get drafted "it's just a matter of who, when and where.''

He was scheduled to have workouts last week with Portland (Thursday) and Seattle (Saturday) but cancelled both after slightly injuring his groin.

But Jones said he didn't think that should hurt his standing with either team, saying that if any teams should know how he plays it should be the two in the Northwest.
