Thursday afternoon, it was reported that power forward Terrence Jones will be joining the Milwaukee Bucks.
Jones, who is in his fifth year in the NBA, was a graduate of Kentucky. He spent his first four seasons with the Houston Rockets and played the majority of this season with the New Orleans Pelicans, before he was waived. This season, Jones played in 51 games and started 12, averaging 11.5 points per game, 5.9 rebounds per game, and a career-high 1.2 assists per game in nearly 25 minutes per game.
Jones will be a good glue guy who could start for the Bucks, as Jabari Parker had been the starting power forward until incurring a season-ending ACL injury. He’ll likely see split time with Mirza Teletovic, but could provide just the boost that Milwaukee needs to secure a spot in the playoffs. As of Thursday afternoon, the Bucks remain two games out of 8th place in the Eastern Conference.
