Tough news for a former Cat: Terrence Jones has been sent to the D-League by the Houston Rockets. So far this season, Jones has averaged 3.6 points per game and 2 rebounds per game in 10 minutes per game. He’ll join the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, who coincidentally play the Tulsa Drillers tonight, whose roster includes DeAndre Liggins and Daniel Orton.
The news is surprising, since Terrence has had a decent season so far, including a posterizing dunk over Jodie Meeks a few weeks ago. The move may be partly due to the impressive play of Patrick Patterson, who had a career-high 27 points against the Thunder on Wednesday.
Teach ’em bout the Rockets, Terrence.
