Wolves are in the title game and Tyus Jones is the league MVP


Tyus Jones and the Timberwolves are playing for a championship against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night – and you can watch them battle for Summer League glory at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.

On Sunday, Jones was named the MVP of the Las Vegas Summer League, where he's guided the Wolves (4-3) all the way to the title game. Minnesota is the No. 24 seed – the lowest seed possible – and they're taking on the No. 2-seeded, undefeated Bulls (6-0).

After scoring 29 points in the Wolves' semifinal win over the Suns on Sunday, Jones is averaging 19.4 points, 6.3 assists and 4 rebounds per game.

"We want it bad," Jones said Sunday on ESPN. "We came this far, we’re going to try to bring it all home."

Jones has a minor wrist injury but it will not limit him in Monday's title game.



Past Summer League MVPs include:

  • 2012: Damian Lillard and Josh Selby
  • 2013: Jonas Valančiūnas
  • 2014: Glen Rice Jr.
  • 2015: Kyle Anderson
  • 2016: Tyus Jones
