Wiki

Larry Jones (born September 22, 1942 in Columbus, Ohio) is a retired American basketball player. He played professionally in the NBA and ABA, from 1964 to 1974.

A 6'3" guard from the University of Toledo, Jones started and ended his career with the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers, who drafted him in 1964. However, Jones would have his best years in the rival ABA, playing for the Denver Rockets, The Floridians, the Dallas Chaparrals, and the Utah Stars from 1967 to 1973. A high-scoring jump shooter, he averaged at least 22 points per game during each of his first four seasons in the league, and during one stretch with the Rockets in 1968, he scored at least 30 points in 23 consecutive games. He was also named to four ABA All-Star teams, and he was the first president of the ABA Player's Association. Upon retiring from professional basketball in 1974, Jones had tallied 10,505 combined NBA/ABA career points. Larry is now a substitute teacher in Columbus City Schools.
