Former Duke basketball sophomore point guard Tre Jones has signed with the same sports agency that represents his brother, Tyus Jones.

Despite the chaos surrounding the 2020 NBA Draft, Tre Jones is continuing to prepare himself for the next level as he has officially signed with a sports agency.

Darren Wolfson of Eyewitness News in Minneapolis first reported on Tuesday that the youngest Jones brother will be signing with BDA Sports, the same agency that represents his brother, Tyus Jones.

BDA Sports also will be signing Minnesota’s Daniel Oturu.

Tyus Jones left Durham after just one season at Duke, winning the 2015 National Championship, and was drafted with the No. 24 overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers before a draft-day trade sent him to his hometown Minnesota Timberwolves.

The eldest Jones spent four seasons with the T-Wolves before signing an offer sheet with the Memphis Grizzlies this past summer, which Minnesota did not match.

As for Tre Jones, the sophomore captain is coming off his second season at Duke, which resulted in the ACC Player of the Year Award as well as the conference’s Defensive Player of the Year Award.

Jones was named to various All-American teams by different publications as well as being a finalist for a number of national awards.

Tre Jones will be leaving Duke along with fellow captains, and seniors, Javin DeLaurier, Jack White, and Justin Robinson as well as freshman Vernon Carey Jr. and Cassius Stanley, who will also be foregoing their remaining years of eligibility for the professional ranks.
