But not necessarily in a way we would like. The Houston Rockets reassigned rookie forward Terrence Jones to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the Rockets’ NBA Development League affiliate, on Wednesday. The assignment is the record 74th of the 2012-13 NBA and NBADL seasons, and is the third for Jones this year. He is one of 43 NBA players to have been assigned to the NBADL this season.
Jones (6-9, 252, Kentucky) rejoins the Vipers after having played in two games for the team, averaging 22.5 points,17.5 rebounds, one block and 36 minutes. Jones has appeared in 11 games for the Rockets this season, averaging 3.1 points, 1.6 rebounds and 8.3 minutes.
