Aaron Jones hopes to take advantage of his good chemistry with Jaylon Brown, with whom he met three years ago at the Finnish Vilpas Vikings, to help Bilbao Basket achieve their goals and, incidentally, continue to grow as a player. "I know Jaylon and I have followed him closely these years. I have seen that he has been able to play a great game and I also want to contribute things to the team," said the American pivot at the start in Miribilla, in a face-to-face press conference .

The North American player, 2.06 meters tall and 26 years old, arrives in Bilbao from Merlins Crailsheim in Germany, where last season he averaged 11.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.8 steals and 17.2 PIR per game. After concluding his university stage in the United States in Mississippi (2011-2015), he made the leap to European basketball with the German RheinStars Cologne (2015-2016). Subsequently, the interior played for the Bulgarian Beroe Stara Zagora (2016-2017), the Finnish Vilpas Vikings (2017-2018) and the Greek Rethymno Cretan Kings (2018-2019) .

"On a personal level I know what I am capable of. I always want to win, that is my mentality. And as a team you have to go day by day and get as high as possible," said Jones, who considers that he does not have great weaknesses in his game and defined himself as the glue of the team.

The new signing of RETAbet was accompanied by the sports director, Rafa Pueyo, who stressed that Jones is a player who "always brings a lot of energy and rhythm" to the game and who, in addition, is "very fast and mobile for his position". "He stands out for his effectiveness in attack near the rim. Thanks to his mobility and his ability to play over the rim, he takes advantage of pick & roll situations. In addition, he is a good rebounder on both rims and has good defensive activity that helps to excel in recoveries and plugs, "he explained.
