Rockets to sign Terrence Jones to second 10-day contract

It appears as though veteran forward Terrence Jones has earned at least another week and a half in Texas. According to a recent report from Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Rockets will be signing Jones to a second 10-day contract.

If the Rockets would like to retain Jones past his latest 10-day deal, Houston will be forced to sign him for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.

“Rockets to sign Terrence Jones to a second 10-day contract tomorrow, a person with knowledge of the move said,” Feigen tweeted. “Rockets do not have to re-sign Jones and Chiozza for two weeks to meet the roster requirement, but will keep Jones around.”

Currently in the midst of his second stint as a member of the Rockets, the veteran forward originally broke into the league with Houston all the way back in 2012-13. Jones was originally selected by the Rockets with the No. 18 overall pick in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft out of Kentucky while he would go on to remain in Houston through the 2015-16 season. After his initial stay in Houston, the former collegiate standout spent time with both the New Orleans Pelicans and Milwaukee Bucks during the 2016-17 campaign. Jones did not play in the NBA last season, however.

Thus far into his latest stint in Houston, Jones has logged just one minute of action which came against the Charlotte Hornets on February 27th. He missed his only field goal attempt and did not log any other statistics during the lone appearance.
