Raised in Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York, Jones was one of two children of Charles and Cathy Jones and graduated from Bishop Ford Central Catholic High School in 1993. In 1997, Jones estimated to The New York Times that around 15 of his friends from Bedford-Stuyvesant were killed on the streets.[1]

Jones attended Rutgers University and Long Island University, before spending two seasons in the NBA for the Chicago Bulls (1998–99) and the Los Angeles Clippers (1999–2000). Afterwards, he played overseas, notably in Argentina.
