The Rockets have once again found themselves in contention for the NBA title this season with the reunion of Russell Westbrook and James Harden in the H-Town, and now they need some role players. One guy they’re looking at is ex-Cat and former Rocket Terrence Jones.
Rockets like what they have with their minimum signings, especially with Anthony Bennett. The team is looking at bringing Terrence Jones back, per a source.

Terrence Jones was originally drafted by Houston after the 2012 National Championship season, where he spent four injury-ridden seasons with the franchise. When the Rockets made their run to Western Conference Finals in 2015, Jones averaged 10.2 points and 4.8 rebounds during the postseason starting nine of the 17 games he played in.
He had a short time with the Pelicans and the Bucks before returning to the Rockets on a 10-day contract last season, but his contract was not renewed.
It’s been a wild year for T. Jones. He was G-Leauge player of the week back in February. As I mentioned earlier he did sign a 10-day with the Rockets which ultimately didn’t get renewed before the playoffs. In May, he signed a deal with TNT KaTropa of the Philippines for the 2019 PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) Commissioner’s Cup. That, of course, led to the infamous brawl in June where Terrence got caught with a vicious clothesline.
Now, after a crazy 2019, it looks like Jones might find himself back with the Rockets after all.
