After tearing up the NBA Development League for six games, rookie Tyus Jones is headed back up to the Wolves. The team recalled him from the Idaho Stempede Tuesday morning.
In six games for Idaho, the rookie guard averaged 24.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.5 steals in 35.2 minutes per game. Started each game, he shot 48.7 percent from the floor, including 42.6 percent from three-point range. In his final game before being recalled, Jones scored 30 points while adding five rebounds and five assists.
Jones, from Apple Valley, was selected with the 24th overall pick and acquired by the Wolves in a draft-day trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Jones has appeared in two games this season for Minnesota, averaging 0.5 points in 6.9 minutes per game.
