NBA Draft 2012: Perry Jones Has Huge Workout On Monday

While Anthony Davis and Thomas Robinson have moved to the very top of the power forward crop in the 2012 NBA Draft, Baylor sophomore Perry Jones III is still trying to establish himself among a very talented group at the position.

His draft stock has been slipping in recent weeks, but he'll have a golden chance to stem his slide next Monday:

Terrence Jones, John Henson and Jared Sullinger are three of Jones' main competitors to be a lottery selection as a swing forward. All three had better statistics than PJ3, but none have his combination of size and athleticism at 6'11 235.

Sullinger, in particular, could well be sliding due to reports about his back troubles. He'll have no chance of defending any of the five other players at the Detroit workout, while Jones can match-up with all five.

The Pistons are rumored to be looking for a front-court partner for second-year big Greg Monroe. However, it's not the best fit for Jones' talents as he and Monroe are similarly unselfish 6'11+ passers who might be better suited to playing with a more dominant scorer in the front-court.
