Bleacher Report suggests that the team could make a move sign Washington Wizards guard Tyus Jones, reuniting him with his brother Tre.

"Jones, who turns 28 in May, is one of the league's better classic point guards. He's currently on the rebuilding Washington Wizards, who may be reluctant to reinvest in him this summer. Jones is averaging a career-high 12.2 points and 7.2 assists per game and is shooting a career-high 42.5 percent from three-point range," Bleacher Report writes. "While Jones will receive interest from contenders and could be a sign-and-trade candidate, an offer from the Spurs in the $20 million-per-year range should get it done."

Tre Jones has yet to prove that he is the point guard of the future, and Tyus likely wouldn't take that title either. However, bringing him onto the roster would give the team some stronger point guard play to help Victor Wembanyama further establish himself in the NBA.

Washington is also a rebuilding team with very little tying them down financially. However, the opportunity to play alongside his brother and be Wembanyama's table setter may be too hard for Tyus to pass up.
