Frederick (Freddy/Fred) Terrell Jones (born March 11, 1979) is an American professional basketball player who plays at the shooting guard position. He's currently playing for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Born in Malvern, Arkansas, he moved to Portland, Oregon in middle school and became the Oregon High School Player of the Year for Sam Barlow High School in Gresham, a suburb of Portland. He then went on to play four seasons at the University of Oregon, where, during his senior year, he led the Ducks to the Elite Eight, with the help of PG Luke Ridnour and G/F Luke Jackson. While widely considered to be an underachiever during his first three years at Oregon, Jones jumped onto the national radar screen as a senior, becoming a candidate for Pac-10 Player of the Year and averaging 18.6 points per game. Fred Jones is known as the primary building block to the recent success of the Oregon Duck basketball program, per Ernie Kent.

Jones was the 14th pick in the 2002 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers. He was drafted by Isiah Thomas. He played sparingly as a rookie, averaging only 1.2 points per game in 19 appearances while playing behind Reggie Miller. That scoring average increased to nearly 5 points per game in his second year while appearing in 81 games. He more than doubled his averages during the 2004–05 season (to 10.6 ppg), partly due to fellow teammate and small forward Ron Artest being suspended for the season for his involvement in The Malice at The Palace incident. In his first start after the incident, Jones scored a career high 31 points against the Orlando Magic, establishing himself as one of the team's primary scoring weapons.
