Jordan Bone ’16 Called 57th in NBA Draft

Jordan Bone, a 2016 Ensworth graduate and point guard at Tennessee, was picked by the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Bone is the first Ensworth alum to play at basketball's highest level. After being drafted in the 2nd round as 57th pick overall, Jordan was ultimately traded to the Detroit Pistons.

He led the Tigers to the state championship game his senior year and also played on Ensworth's back-to-back state championship teams in 2013 and 2014.

After graduating from Ensworth, Bone played three seasons with the Tennessee Volunteers before declaring for the draft late last month after wowing scouts at the NBA Combine, placing first in four categories of all participants.

He had a breakout season with the top-10 Vols squad in 2018-2019, averaging 13.5 points per game.
