The San Antonio Spurs had the chance to chase after big-name free agents like Kyrie Irving and Fred VanVleet this summer, but their front office saved their cap space and made a short-term investment in Tre Jones instead. Though he will retain his title as starting point guard, the 23-year-old will have to prove he deserves to run the offense as the team enters the Victor Wembanyama era.

The Silver and Black are stacked with talent at almost every position, but Jones is in for the challenge of his life as he auditions for a long-term future as a starter against the greatest points guards across the NBA. With that in mind, where does the diminutive playmaker belong in the floor general heirarchy as the league prepares to kick off another 82-game regular season schedule?

Tier One: All-NBA Contenders

No one should be surprised that Tre Jones is nowhere to be found at the top of the basketball food chain. This tier is home to the best point guards on the planet, and each of these household names has a chance to take home All-NBA hardware at the end of the season.

1.) Luka Doncic
2.) Steph Curry
3.) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
4.) Ja Morant
5.) Damian Lillard
6.) Trae Young
7.) Kyrie Irving

Luka Doncic, Steph Curry, and Ja Morant are generational talents who have the skill to be the engine of a championship offense. The other superstars in this tier are also capable of carrying an immense scoring and playmaking load, which separates them from their peers.
