The former world class sprinter wants to play basketball in Europe and possibly in the WNBA.
Jones is no stranger to basketball; she received a full scholarship to play the sport at the University of North Carolina where she won a national title, but track later became her first love.
Since the steroid scandal and her release from prison in 2008, a six month sentence for lying to prosecutors about using PED’s, Jones has had a baby with husband and former sprinter Obadele Thompson, their third child together.
The disgraced sprinter, wife and mother should be given a second chance to redeem herself and win the right way. Besides, the WNBA could use all the publicity they can get, their ticket sales suck.
