Chandi Jones (born March 25, 1982) is a professional basketball player.
Jones is the daughter of Janice and David Jones, a 1974 draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys. She was a basketball and long jump standout at Bay City High School in Bay City, Texas. Jones attended college at University of Houston. While attending UH, Jones was a standout and brought the program to national prominence. During her freshman season, Jones tore or anterior cruciate ligament, and missed the final eleven games of the season. Even with the injury, she was awarded the Conference USA Freshman of the Year honor and was also named to the All-Conference first team. As a leader of the Lady Cougars, Jones helped the team advance to the finals of the 2002 Women's National Invitation Tournament (WNIT), and to its first NCAA Division I Women's Tournament bearth in twelve years in 2004. She was named the Conference USA Player of the Year three times. She graduated in 2004 and in 2005, the University of Houston retired Jones's jersey number (14). She is currently the all-time leading scorer in school and conference history.
Following her collegiate career, she was selected by the Phoenix Mercury 8th overall in the 2004 WNBA Draft before being traded to the Detroit Shock for Shereka Wright, Erika Valek and Sheila Lambert on draft day. On July 30, 2005 Jones was dealt to the Lynx along Stacey Thomas and a draft pick for Katie Smith.
After averaging 5.0 points per game in her first two seasons, ankle and knee injuries limited Jones to just six games in 2006. She averaged just 2.8 points and 6.3 minutes in those contests. On May 18, 2007, Jones was released by the Lynx.
