But the most of that year he spent at Al-Riffa where in 23 Premier League games he averaged remarkable 30.8ppg, 16.7rpg, 3.4apg, 2.4spg and 1.0bpg. It was a very successful season in his career as he was awarded Asia-Basket.com All-Bahrain League Forward of the Year and voted to 1st Team and voted to All-Imports Team.
In 2008 Jones was drafted by Iowa Energy (D-League) in fourth round (50th overall).

Aggressive offensively using his length to go inside against smaller players Has a decent midrange game and some polished moves going to the basket Has good length, long wing span Solid rebounder Stays with in his comfort zone, doesn't try to do too much or get out of control Improved defensively showing the ability to pick up a fair number of steals His overall feel for the game is solid.
