Terrence Jones signs his contract


(That is a baby, not the contract.)

Terrence Jones inked his deal with the Rockets today. The former Cat and “Teach Me ‘Bout Kentucky” star signed with Houston for $2.5 million over two years.

That is exactly $2.5 million more than Bryan The Intern made in his first two years with KSR.

Go Cats.

    1.25 ayear after taxes 750,00 he should sue Cal, for breech of contract kid could have left but Cal, talked that crap of him returning and being the best overall player in the country. Amazing how people forget this.

    Congrad TJ you will be just fine where you are at! With hard work you will make lots of money in your career! Rondo wasn’t a lottery pick either!

    I was thinking that rookie contracts for rookies are typically 3 year deals…incorrect?

    Cal owes this a kid a couple million for duping him into coming back.

    We wouldn’t be NATIONAL CHAMPS without him! And if he had left you would have said he should have stayed!

    A) I bet TJ would tell all yall little girls that Cal did more for him than he did for Cal.

    B) Glad its only 2 years – that means he’s a free agent and can move to a team that actually needs forwards and doesn’t have 12 of ’em.

    2 and 5, you really don’t know what you’re talking about do you? But that doesn’t keep you from spouting your useless drivel.

    TJ will be All NBA 1st team someday, and we can thank him, and Coach Cal, for him coming back and developing. An absolute steal for Houston no doubt, but is he even 21 yet? Just wait and see, 1st team All NBA someday. It’s not always about the money. Without TJ, UK might not have gotten number 8. Any doubters on Coach or TJ can go to hell.

    rookie contracts are 2 years with team options for the 3rd and 4th

    11, what is not truthful that 2 and 5 said?

    2,5,and 14 = 1 person. There’s not a whole lot of people in this state that actually believe that. Cal encourages kids to go pro more than ANY other coach in college ball. And if he did tell TJ he thought he could do better with a second year, you better believe he meant it. We never saw the TJ that threw down in the Midnight Madness game again.
