Big George had been an All Star level performer with the Pacers in the ABA and then in the NBA for the Sixers. He averaged 22.6 ppg and 11.4 rpg in his first year in Denver, but then fell apart and was out of basketball after the 1981-82 season. In Philly, Jones ended up winning a title in 1982-83 and was 1st team All Defense 6 times and 2nd team on another occasion.
the Sixers got the better end of that trade for sure.  McGinnis and DR.J could get along and Jones was a shutdown defensive foward and could score 15ppg. i think that Jones even made the all star team, even though he was a back up for the Sixers.

 Jones was the NBA's first 6th man of the year winner while he was with the 76ers.

Caldwell also had three brothers, Wil, Major, and Charles, who, like him, played college basketball at Albany State in Georgia and then in the NBA and ABA. Near the end of his career, Charles picked up a title ring as a bench player for the Rockets.

I liked Major Jones.  He played for the Pistons for a while.  He was a real hot dog, but fun to watch.

In 1991, Dad took me to a Braves game. We stopped at the McDonald's on Cleveland Avenue for a meal.

He left me at a table while he went to order. Several minutes later, he comes back with the food and a story.

Dad's 6'5". Another tall guy in line out of the blue started talking to him.

Guy: You ever play basketball?

Dad: No. Did you?

Guy: Albany State.

Dad: Did you ever play with the Taylor boys?

Guy: Do you know Miss Mattie?

Dad apparently confirmed it. The guy starts talking about going with the Taylor brothers to their home in Enigma. Their mother - Miss Mattie - can cook and she'd feed anybody who walked in the door.

The Taylor boys are our local legends. We're friends with the family, as Dad worked with Miss Mattie at Enigma Elementary.

This story does have a bit of a point.

Last year, Dad ran into one of the Taylor boys. He hadn't seen him in years. He happened to remember the meeting in Atlanta and asked him who it could've been.

Wayne told him it was probably one of the Jones brothers. Based on the years they all played at Albany State and how tall he was, we figure it was probably Wil.

I've always wondered how many points he would have averaged in college if there was a three point line.  He used drill shots from well behind the NBA line.
