Suns’ Derrick Jones Jr. puts on All-Star Dunk Contest preview in warmups

The fans have voted Aaron Gordon as the overwhelming favorite to win the All-Star Slam Dunk Contest, but with such a competitive field, a victory is far from certain.

Derrick Jones Jr. has never dunked in an NBA game.

But the athleticism of the Suns’ wing got in invited into Friday night’s All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest, and in warmups Monday night Jones gave the people a little preview of what they may get to see on Saturday night.

Damn, this could be fun Saturday night.

The Magic’s Aaron Gordon comes in the man to beat, and Glenn Robinson III and DeAndre Jordan have thrown their hats in the ring as well.
