Haley Jones (born May 23, 2001)[1] is an American professional basketball player for the Atlanta Dream of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). She played collegiate basketball for the Stanford Cardinal of the Pac-12 Conference. As a sophomore in 2021, she was named an all-conference selection in the Pac-12.[2] The Cardinal won a national championship that season, and Jones was named the Final Four Most Outstanding Player.[3] She was selected 6th overall in the 2023 WNBA draft by the Atlanta Dream.

Jones was born in Santa Cruz, California. She attended Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, where she was named the Naismith Prep Player of the Year and a McDonald's All-American as a senior in 2019.[4] A five-star recruit, Jones was ranked the number one recruit in the 2019 class by ESPN.[5][6] As a freshman at Stanford University in 2019–20, she averaged 11.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.4 assist before suffering a season-ending, knee ligament injury.[7][8] The following season in 2020–21 Jones returned to play, averaging 13.2 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 2.8 assists.[9] The Cardinal won the 2021 NCAA tournament for their first national title since 1992.[3]

On April 13, 2021, the Santa Cruz City Council declared that henceforth April 4 will be known as "Haley Jones Day" in recognition of her athletic accomplishments, specifically winning the national championship with Stanford and receiving the NCAA Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four award.[10]
