Eddie Jones was raised in his hometown, where he attended Blanche Ely High School, after which he enrolled at Temple University. While in college, he distinguished himself as a basketball player, being named the 1993-94 Atlantic 10 Player of the Year. After this successful season in college, Eddie declared for the 1994 NBA Draft, and ended being selected by the Los Angeles Lakers as the 10th overall pick.
In his first season, Eddie made an impact on Lakers` game, as he had 14.0 points, 2.0 steals and 3.9 rebounds per game in the 64 games he played, starting in 58 of them. Eddie was named fourth in the Rookie of the Year award contest, and was selected for the NBA All-Rookie First Team. His second season saw an increase in Jones` playing time, as he played in 70 games, while starting in 66 of them, and solidifying himself as a starter in the shooting guard position; that year, the Lakers reached the play off, but were defeated by the Houston Rockets led by Clyde Drexlter, Charles Barkley and Hakeem Olajuwon. Nevertheless, Eddie had great numbers in the series, averaging 17.3 points per game.
The following season, the Lakers bought the star center Shaquille O`Neal, while also trading Vlade Divac for Kobe Bryant; Eddie was still one of the first options in offense, and he averaged 17.2 points in the 80 games he played, all of which were starts. He stayed with the Lakers until the 1999 season, having the lead role in attack and defense, and mentoring the young Kobe Bryant, as both of them played in the same position, however, he was eventually traded to the Charlotte Hornets for Glen Rice, J.R. Reid and B.J Armstrong, alongside Elden Campbell.
In his first season with the Hornets, Eddie started 30 games, as the NBA season was shortened to 50 games, while he also started 20 games for the Lakers, and averaged 17.0 points, 3.0 steals and 4.2 assists per game. In the next season, Eddie shone on the court, having his best season ever in the league as he averaged 20.1 points, 2.7 steals, and 4.2 assists per game, starting in 72 games.
In the 2000-2001 season, he signed a new contract with the Hornets, but was traded to the Miami Heat for Jamal Mashburn and PJ Brown. He led the Hornets to the play-offs, but then playing with the Heat, the starting center of the Heat, Alonzo Mourning was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease, and Eddie and the rest of the team could only do so much and were swept in the first round by his former team Charlotte Hornets. He played for the Heat until the end of the 2004-2005 season, after which he was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in a five team trade that included 13 players. He played for Memphis for just two years, with his numbers in decline, before he returned to Miami for the 2006-2007 season after he was waived by the Grizzlies. Unfortunately, his stint was short, as he played in only 35 games, after which he became an unrestricted free agent, and joined the Dallas Mavericks on a two year deal, which only increased his net worth.
His two years lasted for only a season, as he was traded to the Indiana Pacers, for which he never played a game, as he was released from the Pacers just six days after he joined the team, after which he decided to retire.
Eddie ended his career with 14,155 points, and 1,620 steals; he was the NBA steals leader in 2000, and played in three NBA All-Star games, 1997, 1998 and 2000. Furthermore, he was named into the NBA All-Defensive Second Team three times, consecutively from 1998 until 2000.
