Former Butler standout Roosevelt Jones didn't have to travel far in his pursuits of a shot in the NBA, training just a few miles from familiar Hinkle Fieldhouse with St. Vincent Sports Performance.

Jones has had workouts for the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics, his trip to Boston allowing him to reconnect with the man who recruited him to Butler, Brad Stevens.

Jones will continue to workout with the St Vincent team leading up to the NBA Draft later this month in hopes of landing on a summer league roster.
