Most people forget that New Jersey-native Dahntay Jones spent his first two years of collegiate basketball playing for Rutgers University, before relocating down to the state of North Carolina. In his first two seasons at Duke, he he earned All-ACC Honorable Mention honors, followed by First-team All-ACC honors.
The Boston Celtics took Jones with the 20th overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, but dealt him in a draft night deal that brought them Kendrick Perkins. Jones played 14 years in the NBA, but across eight different NBA teams, and two different stints in the NBA’s Developmental League. In 12 of his 14 years, he averaged less than 10 points per game scoring.
