John Logan Jenkins III (born March 6, 1991)[1] is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Jenkins was a two-time TSSAA Class AA Mr. Basketball selection, and was the Gatorade Tennessee High School Player of the Year in 2008–09.[2] He played college basketball at Vanderbilt University.

High school career

As a senior at Station Camp High School, Jenkins was the nation's leading scorer for high schoolers, averaging 42.3 points per game, finishing second on the state's single-season list behind Ronnie Schmitz, who averaged 44.2 points at Ridgeway High School in 1988-89.[3]

Considered a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Jenkins was listed as the No. 6 shooting guard and the No. 15 player in the nation in 2009.[4]

College career

One of the nation's top shooters, Jenkins shot 48.3% (72-149) from three in his freshman season at Vanderbilt, 40.8% (100-245) as a sophomore, and 43.9% (134-305) from beyond-the-arc as a junior. As a sophomore, he led the Southeastern Conference in scoring (19.5) and in 3-point field goals made per game (3.1) and finished second in free throw percentage (.894)[3] and was picked to the Fifth Team All-America by Fox Sports.[5] As a junior, he averaged 19.9 points per game, leading the SEC for the second consecutive season (the first time since LSU's Ronnie Henderson did it in 1995-96). He also tied an SEC single-season record for threes made in a season with 134. He led the nation in three-pointers made per game (3.9) and was named a third-team All-American by the Associated Press.[3]

On April 9, 2012, Jenkins announced that he would forgo his final year of eligibility at Vanderbilt to enter the 2012 NBA draft.[6] The NCAA deadline for players to withdraw from the draft and retain college eligibility passed the following day; as Jenkins did not choose to withdraw, his college eligibility ended at that time.

Jenkins was selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the 23rd overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft. On July 10, 2012, he signed his rookie scale contract with the Hawks[7] and joined them for the 2012 NBA Summer League. On December 1, 2012, he was assigned to the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League.[8] On December 5, 2012, he was recalled by the Hawks.[9]

In July 2014, Jenkins re-joined the Hawks for the 2014 NBA Summer League. On October 30, 2014, the Hawks declined to exercise Jenkins' four-year team option and thus allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent in 2015.[15] On November 28, 2014, he was assigned to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.[16] He was recalled on December 8, 2014.[17] On December 30, 2014, using the flexible assignment rule, the Hawks assigned Jenkins to the Idaho Stampede, the affiliate of the Utah Jazz.[18] On January 20, 2015, he was recalled by the Hawks.[19]
