During an interview with Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, Washington Wizards point guard Tyus Jones was asked to talk about shooting guard Jordan Poole.

Jones and Poole are both newcomers to the Wizards this season and have bonded quickly.

“As a person, we hit it off right away,” Jones said about Poole. “He’s a Midwest kid. We have that in common. He’s a basketball junkie. He loves hoops like myself. We’re always talking about our game, games around the league, watching film and breaking down situations. On the court, we’re getting more familiar with each other and building that chemistry. I’ve seen how well he moves without the ball. We’re continuing to try to implement his style of basketball here in DC and seeing what best suits him.

“For a point guard, it’s a fun task for me to try to alter the game to how it can fit everybody and make everyone gel. He’s the first in the gym and the last to leave. He’s a tireless worker. He works on his craft and is dedicated to it. That’s something you like to see from the face of your franchise.”

The Wizards acquired Poole from the Golden State Warriors and got Jones from the Memphis Grizzlies this past offseason.

Poole is averaging 16.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists for the Wizards while shooting 40.6% from the field, 30.1% from beyond the arc and 78.6% from the free-throw line.

Meanwhile, Jones is averaging 9.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 4.8 assists while shooting 45.9% from the floor, 36.8% from 3 and 50.0% from the foul line.
