Marcel Jones

Al-Ahli (Premier League) inked 33-year old American (has also New Zealander passport) forward Marcel Jones (203-99kg-85, college: Oregon State).
Jones played in the summer at SC Rangers in New Zealand NBL league. In 15 games he recorded very impressive stats: 23.2ppg, 10.2rpg, 2.3apg and 1.4spg. A very good season in his career as he was voted to All-New Zealand NBL 2nd Team, All-Domestic Players Team and League Player of the Week. Jones ended the last season at Al Gharafa (D1) in Qatari league. 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 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).
He attended Oregon State and it will be his eleventh (!!!) season in pro basketball.
Among other achievements Jones' team won New Zealand NBL Regular Season in 2010 and 2016.
He is a very experienced player. Jones has quite traveled the world as his pro career brought him to twelve different countries on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Australia and of course North America). Jones has played previously professionally also in Bosnia (HKK Zrinjski HT Mostar), Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo (Prishtina and Bashkimi), Romania (Pitesti), Slovenia (Helios), Syria (Al Wahda), Turkey (Akhisar Bld) and United Kingdom.
His game is described as: Strengt: Forward with good size for the 3 position. 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.
