Jones was spotted at the MedStar Health Performance Center earlier today before the Mystics made their announcement.

Jones was the 12th overall pick in the 2020 Draft from Louisville. She played two of her college seasons with forward Myisha Hines-Allen, who missed practice due to testing for health and safety protocols.
Given that the Mystics’ roster is set for the season, Jones is on the roster as “insurance” and will play sparingly, which General Manager and Head Coach Mike Thibault said after practice.
