Early career

Born in Malvern, Arkansas, he moved to Portland, Oregon in middle school and became the Oregon High School Player of the Year for Sam Barlow High School in Gresham, a suburb of Portland. He then went on to play four seasons at the University of Oregon, where, during his senior year, he led the Ducks to the Elite Eight, with the help of PG Luke Ridnour and G/F Luke Jackson. While widely considered to be an underachiever during his first three years at Oregon, Jones jumped onto the national radar screen as a senior, becoming a candidate for Pac-10 Player of the Year and averaging 18.6 points per game. Fred Jones is known as the primary building block to the recent success of the Oregon Duck basketball program, per Ernie Kent.

Professional career

NBA

Jones was the 14th pick in the 2002 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers. He was drafted by Isiah Thomas. He played sparingly as a rookie, averaging only 1.2 points per game in 19 appearances while playing behind Reggie Miller. That scoring average increased to nearly 5 points per game in his second year while appearing in 81 games. He more than doubled his averages during the 2004–05 season (to 10.6 ppg), partly due to fellow teammate and small forward Ron Artest being suspended for the season for his involvement in The Malice at The Palace incident. In his first start after the incident, Jones scored a career high 31 points against the Orlando Magic, establishing himself as one of the team's primary scoring weapons.

In 2004 he won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, beating out two-time champion Jason Richardson.

In the 2006 off-season, the Toronto Raptors signed Fred Jones.[1]

On February 22 2007, the Raptors traded Jones to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for guard Juan Dixon.[2]

Jones, along with Zach Randolph and Dan Dickau, was traded to the New York Knicks on June 28, 2007 for Channing Frye and Steve Francis. The trade reunited Jones with New York Knicks head coach Isiah Thomas, the man who drafted him. The Knicks did not re-sign him after the year.

On December 28, 2008, Jones signed with the Los Angeles Clippers as a free agent.[3] He was waived on January 5, 2009,[4] however 3 days later he was again signed by the Clippers to a 10-day contract.[5]

On January 11, 2009, against the Phoenix Suns, Jones recorded his first ever double double, with 13 points and a career high 10 assists.[6]

On January 28, 2009, Jones received news that the Clippers would resign him for the rest of the season,[7] which they did the following day.[8]

Italy

In August 2009 Jones signed with Italian team Pallacanestro Biella.[9] After suffering a shoulder injury, although still under contract, Jones is back in the United States rehabbing his injury.
