Jones ready to make an impact with the Conneticut Sun | 10th Year Seniors
Jonquel Jones left college basketball as one of the most decorated players in women's collegiate basketball history last month. TheGrand Bahama native won multiple awards while at George Washington University, and Thursday, she took the next step in her career, when she was drafted with the sixth pick in the first round by the Los Angeles Sparks in the 2016 WNBA draft. Following the pick, she was immediately traded to the Connecticut Sun in exchange for former Duke guard Chelsea Gray and the Suns No. 1 draft pick next year. Jones, when asked about the trade, said she wasn't bitter at all about it and is looking forward to becoming a part of the Suns organization. "That's life, you just have to adapt and make changes," she said. "I'm happy to be with Connecticut. I talked to coach Miller (Curt) extensively and he felt like my game would transition well to this system and he told me that he was really high on me, so i wasn't surprised when i heard that they traded for me."
