2012 NBA Draft Rumors: Perry Jones III To Visit Sixers

Perry Jones III is one of the players who will visit with the Philadelphia 76ers in advance of the 2012 NBA Draft, according to Tom Moore of Philly Burbs.

Jones remains an enigma after two seasons at Baylor. He's a skilled, mobile, 6-foot-11 forward who has drawn comparisons to Kevin Durant, but he also failed to produce at an elite level in college, averaging 13.5 points and 7.6 rebounds as a sophomore.

Jones was projected to be a top-five pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, but decided to return to Baylor for another year of seasoning. Rather than take a step forward during his encore season, Jones' development stagnated and teams still have doubts about whether he will ever reach his vast potential.
