For second year in a row, Herb Jones earns praise for offseason work

At the start of last season, New Orleans Pelicans head coach Willie Green raved about Herb Jones' work ethic and how great he'd looked.

During the Pelicans' media day on Monday, Green was asked if anyone had made a similar impression this offseason. 

"Herb Jones!" Green said. "He doesn't go home much. He's in New Orleans every day, every morning — to the point where [David Griffin] and those guys are telling him, 'Herb, you gotta have some balance.'"

Jones was excellent as a rookie, emerging as one of the NBA's best perimeter defenders while averaging 9.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.8 blocks on .476/.337/.840 shooting splits.

The 23-year-old was a key contributor for the Pelicans and earned a spot on the All-Rookie Second Team.
