Terrence Jones told Basketball Insiders that he wanted a larger role and that is why he chose to sign with the Pelicans.
Some of this is just spin because it wasn’t like the line for Jones’ services was going out the door. He has big injury risk and one has to wonder why there was practically no market for him. He does have a better shot at playing for a shallow Pelicans squad and theoretically he fits Alvin Gentry’s uptempo system. If he has a good preseason, the ceiling for him in fantasy leagues is as a late-round flier pick.
