NBA Mock Draft Pick #24 -- Tyus Jones, Guard, Duke University

SB Nation's Bucks blog, BrewHoop, explains the pick:

On paper the Bucks are already loaded with young point guards; unfortunately they're not yet loaded with really good point guards. As a result, they may not be able to pass up a player with Tyus Jones' skill and potential, especially this late in the first round. Despite turning 19 only weeks ago, Jones was a crucial component of Duke's title-winning team last spring, providing an intriguing combination of playmaking, shooting and big-game cajones despite lacking ideal size for a point guard. The latter issue is the primary reason Jones could slip to the latter half of the first round, despite the fact that he projects as a top-ten talent by virtually every advanced projection model.
