Jordan Bone is already a new player at Casademont Zaragoza. The Aragonese team and the player, aged 1.90 and 24, have reached an agreement whereby the American will defend the elastic red until the end of the season.
Trained at The Ensworth School in Nashville, Bone was recruited by the University of Tennessee, where he began playing in the 2016-2017 season. There his improvement was progressive year after year, going from 7.2 points, 1.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists of the first season to 13.5 points (52.5% in field shots), 3.2 rebounds and 5.8 assists of the last, two years later, in the 2018-2019 season.
After his third year in the NCAA, Bone decided to enroll in the 2019 NBA Draft, skipping his fourth year of college eligibility. The point guard was selected 57th by the New Orleans Pelicans and, in this way, began his adventure in the NBA, despite the fact that he would end up in Detroit after a transfer.
With the Pistons he averaged 12.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in the Las Vegas Summer League, reaching 10 games for the franchise in the NBA during the 2019 season. This experience was combined with his contribution to the Grand Rapids Drive of the G League, a competition in which he stood out thanks to his 17.6 points, 6.9 assists and 3.3 rebounds per match.
In the 2020-2021 season, Bone wore the colors of the Orlando Magic in 14 regular season NBA games and the Delaware Blue Coats in the G League over 16 other games. From there he jumped to the Indiana Pacers to play the last NBA Summer League in Las Vegas this year, later signing with Turkish Besiktas for the 2021-2022 campaign. A season in which so far he has played 11 games contributing 11.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists in the Turkish league and 17 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4 assists in the Basketball Champions League.
In the words of Jaume Ponsarnau
“Jordan Bone is a player who can help us give a different record to our game, especially because he has the ability to take advantage of being very fast and explosive”, said the “coach”. He believes that he can help “in two positions, 1 and 2”, with the ability to generate and score “thanks to his ability to finish with his shots, especially” from the pot.
He is a good defender and comes out of a very good University in that aspect and his adaptation to our basketball “will happen because of a defensive step.” He has the conditions to do it and, with him, he seeks “to be a team that has more possibilities to get more advantages in the game and that helps to play better.”
