Tyus Jones NBA Free Agent Odds

Tyus Jones NBA Free Agent Odds
Fact Checked by Jim Tomlin

Tyus Jones last changed teams less than a year ago, catching the attention of Virginia sportsbooks. On June 23, 2023, he was part of the three-way trade involving the Memphis Grizzlies, Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards announced the day after the NBA Draft. Now, the Wizards guard could be on the move again. A 6-foot-1 guard, the former Duke standout is now a free agent. He’ll be entering his 10th season in the league this fall, but he just turned 28 this month. 

The Wizards might re-sign him to a lucrative, long-term deal. But Jones is on the wish lists of several other teams in the league. BetVirginia.com developed hypothetical odds to see where Tyus Jones will land for the 2024-25 season. These are not odds you’d find at any licensed Virginia sports betting apps operator.

Where Might Tyus Jones Land?

Jones isn’t a supermax contract player, but he is a capable ball handler who posted career highs in scoring (12.0) and assist (7.3) averages this past season in Washington, which also doubled as his first as a full-time starter. Jones became a valuable starter for the Wizards. He started all 66 games he played in the 2023-24 season; he had accumulated 94 starts in eight seasons combined, with Minnesota and Memphis, before that. Minnesota is one of four teams left in the 2024 NBA playoffs; get the best Virginia sportsbooks promos from us when you sign up and wager.

The Spurs are very much like the Wizards in that they are rebuilding. They have a very nice building block in Victor Wembanyama, who can help coach Gregg Popovich restore the Spurs to their former elite status. A steady point guard like Jones could hasten the Spurs’ revival.

However, Jones has indicated a willingness to stay in DC, and the Wizards have measures they can take to offer him a better deal than he’d get elsewhere. During his end-of-the-season press conference with local media last month, he spoke positively about interim head coach Brian Keefe (a candidate for the permanent job) and the team’s management. 

“It starts at the top, and everyone else, you have to follow suit,” he said. “And honestly, that’s what gives me the hope and the belief in this organization.”

Odds on the 2024-25 NBA championship are already at Caesars Virginia Sportsbook. As one might expect coming off of a 15-67 season, the Wizards have +50000 odds to win it all, tied with the Pistons and Trail Balzers for the longest odds in the league.

NBA Free Agency Period Starts June 30

The NBA free agency window will open at 6 p.m. Eastern on June 30, though there might be indications before then where Jones will end up.

Washington has the second pick in next month’s NBA Draft – see our Washington Wizards draft picks 2024 page for a preview. The Wizards will likely select a front-court player, but there will be point guard options available. UConn’s Stephon Castle, Kentucky’s Rob Dillingham or Reed Sheppard could hear their name called in that spot.

According to USA Today’s HoopsHype, Jones is the 20th-best free agent available this offseason. The site describes him as “a very safe floor general.” Jones posted a league-leading 7.3 assist-to-turnover ratio this past season, but HoopsHype said his “lack of risk-taking” reduces how impactful he can be to a team.
