Friday Quickies: Return of Terrence Jones Edition

Jones is returning to the NBA on a 10-day contract with Houston

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Houston Rockets Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Terrence Jones is coming back to the NBA.

The former Kentucky Wildcat and member of Kentucky’s 2011-2012 national championship team has signed a 10-day contract with the Houston Rockets, per ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.

Jones proved himself to be one of the top players in the NBA G-League, averaging 23.5 points per game (4th in the G-League) along with 9.4 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 1.5 steals, while shooting at a nearly 53 percent clip and 38 percent from the perimeter.

Jones played his first four NBA seasons in Houston before shuffling around teams, so he has some familiarity with the Rockets organization. Hopefully he can catch on with a team that looks to make a deep playoff run and earn a second 10-day contract.
