Terrence Jones Headed to China

The past few years have not been kind to Terrence Jones as he has struggled to find a good home in the NBA.

After being drafted by the Houston Rockets in 2012, Jones worked hard in the D-League and finally got called up to the league in early 2013.  However, the injury bug bit hard in 2014-15 and he missed over 40 games due to a nerve inflammation in his leg.  He seemed to be getting back on track, but a series of injuries in 2015-16 (concussion, lacerated eyelid, car wreck) limited playing time.  After his car accident, he returned for 4 games before again sitting out due to a respiratory illness.

The New Orleans Pelicans picked up Jones in the 2016-17 season and he looked to be getting back on track, averaging 11.5 points and 5.9 rebounds.  But the Pelicans were looking to trade Jones after they picked up Demarcus Cousins from the Kings.  Ultimately, New Orleans waived Jones in February.

Jones then landed in Milwaukee but only played 6 minutes in 3 games before being released.

On Sunday, it was reported that Jones is headed to China now after signing a one-year deal with Qingdao.

While no further details have been released yet, this is good news for the former Kentucky star.  The BBN always has a soft spot in their hearts for former Wildcats, especially those who were part of national championship teams.  Here’s hoping Terrence has a successful run in China!
