Terrence Jones is headed back to the NBA. Or, the G-League at least.

After playing in China for a few months, Jones is back in the States and will sign with the Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State’s G-League affiliate, according to USA Today. Jones, the 18th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, played for Houston, New Orleans, and Milwaukee before signing a one-year, $2 million deal with Qingdao in the Chinese Basketball Association. Late last month, he was released by Qingdao following a confrontation in practice with the head coach. In nine games, he averaged 22.3 points, 11.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 2.3 blocks.

Here’s hoping he makes the best of this new opportunity.

    A poor attitude is costly to career and personal finances.

      Poor choices too…

    Negative Nancies who make no bad choices. Funny.

    I do remember that Jones had some problem with his legs a couple of years ago, and that put a monkey wrench in his career. I am hoping he does well.

      Sure people make bad choices, but when was the last time you stomped on a homeless dude?

    I’m sure they have the inside scoop though Smyrna Cat. Ha.

    It’s interesting looking back at the 2012 team given their careers. Jones had a good run but hasn’t lasted. MKG never took off like we all expected and seems to have maxed out as an elite defender (not nothing). Lamb didn’t last. Miller is getting his chance now but will never be more than a role player. Teague has disappeared. Wiltjer is new to the league but isn’t likely to ever be more than a role player.

    That team seemed like an All-Star squash but in reality, looking back, Davis was the only elite player. We all knew he was amazing when he was here, but looking back he seems even better!

      They were all excellent college players, which doesn’t always translate to the pros.

      True. Compare them to the 38-1 squad, which has numerous players doing big things in the league: Towns, Booker, even Andrew. Lyles, WCS, and Ulis consistently get good minutes. The 2012 Just gelled unlike anything we’ve seen with Cal. I loved the 2015 team, of course, but they had so many more weapons to work with.
