The timing, of course, is a bit interesting, with star guard Ja Morant having been suspended by the NBA for the first 25 games of 2023-24. Jones filled in admirably this past season when Morant was sidelined.

Jones, 27, appeared in 80 games, averaging 10.3 points and 5.2 assists, shooting 44 percent from the field and 37 percent on 3-pointers. Coach Taylor Jenkins has praised Jones’ leadership and ability to direct the offense.
He signed a two-year, $30 million deal with the Grizzlies in 2022.
Fischer did not specify which teams might have an interest, though it is believed the Wizards may be among them.
