Trey McKinney-Jones Returns to Fort Wayne Mad Ants
Trey McKinney-Jones, the second year player out of University of Miami, has been reacquired by the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. He was apart of the Mad Ants squad last season that went undefeated in the postseason and won the D-League championship. In the 2014 season, he averaged 15 points and 4 rebounds as a rookie.
McKinney-Jones has played two games so far in his return. Against the Westchester Knicks, he scored 11 points, grabbed 6 rebounds, and had 2 steals. Against the Grand Rapids Drive, he scored 7 points, 2 rebounds, and added 2 assists. Because of the chemistry he has with the teammates he played with last season he was a starter for both games. However, he played less minutes than he has been used to, and struggled to get into a good shooting rhythm. At the Westchester Knicks game, he went 4 for 11 shooting, and in the Grand Rapids Drive game he went 3 for 7. As the season continues, he should get more minutes equal to that of Gary Talton, if Andre Emmett plays small forward.
