Terrence Jones said that he's going to take "full advantage" of his season in China to prove he's ready for another shot in the NBA.
"This is my last opportunity to prove to my family, my city and myself that I deserve where I dream to be," he said. Injuries have really slowed Jones down, but the 25-year-old forward also admitted to making some "immature decisions" earlier in his career. Jones signed a one-year deal worth $2 million, but the CBA season ends in early Spring. If he impresses, there's a chance an NBA team could pick him up for the final couple months of the 2017-18 season. Jul 31 - 10:02 PM

Free agent F Terrence Jones has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal in China.

The deal with Qingdao is reportedly "one of the largest single-season deals in China history," so it sounds like Jones will be making more than he could have in the NBA. He had a disappointing 2016-17 season but he's still just 25 years old, so this short-term deal in China doesn't preclude a return to the U.S.

Bucks waive F/C Terrence Jones.

The Bucks having so much success with Giannis Antetokounmpo as a four man ended up being Jones' undoing. Even with Michael Beasley hurt, Jones played a grand total of just six minutes in his time with the Bucks in March.

Terrence Jones never left the Bucks' bench on Wednesday.

Michael Beasley is expected to miss another two weeks and we could see T-Jones crack the rotation, but the early returns (or lack thereof) are obviously not promising. He's only stashable if your waiver wire has been picked clean.

Terrence Jones had his first practice with the Bucks on Tuesday, although most of the regulars did not participate.

With Michael Beasley set to spend at least another two weeks on the sidelines, there should be ample opportunity for Jones to get into the rotation, so hopefully, him going through Tuesday's practice will help him get some minutes under Jason Kidd. With the Bucks losing their two primary power forwards, Jones might just be in the right place at the right time. If you have someone to drop and want to take a flier on TJ, it makes a lot of sense.

Terrence Jones was a DNP-CD on Monday.

Coach Jason Kidd said it was going to be tough to play Jones on Saturday, but apparently he meant Monday, too. Jones could've had a chance to come in during garbage time with the Bucks using Spencer Hawes and Rashad Vaughn, but Kidd went away from him. The Bucks are likely going to practice on Tuesday, which may be the essential part of the protocol to get Jones minutes. He's still a solid pickup considering there are not any healthy players who primarily play the four.

Coach Jason Kidd said "it's going to be tough" to play Terrence Jones against the Raptors on Saturday.

"We'll take him to Philly and see if we can get him some minutes there," Kidd said about Jones. In other words, Jones is not expected to be in the rotation today unless there is some unforeseen trouble. Jones should be getting minutes once he's up to speed as really the only healthy Buck whose primary position is power forward. He's still a solid pickup.
Mar 4 - 6:27 PM

The Bucks announced on Saturday that they signed Terrence Jones to a contract for the remainder of the season.

The Bucks host the Raptors on Saturday night, but it is unknown if Jones will be available to play. Milwaukee released Axel Toupane to clear a roster spot for Jones. Over 51 games with the Pelicans this season, Jones was averaging 11.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.0 block in 24.8 minutes per game. He will be battling Mirza Teletovic, Tony Snell, Thon Maker and Michael Beasley (knee) for playing time, but if Jones can secure 20-plus minutes a night, he should be able to post intriguing fantasy numbers. He's worth a flier if you have room on your roster.

Terrence Jones is expected to join the Bucks on Saturday.

That means he's not expected to suit up on Friday night. In the last two games, Giannis Antetokounmpo has played by far the most power forward minutes with a bunch of wings around him and a center, so clearly there is a role for Jones. If it works out, Jones could be looking at minutes in the upper 20s with his new team. He's worth a pickup in standard leagues to see what happens.
Mar 2 - 7:13 PM

Terrence Jones has agreed to a deal with the Bucks for the rest of the season.

The Bucks have been trying to piece together the other forward spot opposite Giannis Antetokounmpo, and now they have their answer. This is arguably the best landing spot for Jones and perhaps the Bucks will even want to look at him for next season -- Jabari Parker (knee) will not be ready to start the year. Jones' competition for minutes will be from Mirza Teletovic, Tony Snell, Thon Maker and the injured Michael Beasley (knee). Jones only needs about 24 minutes to yield value in standard leagues, so it makes a lot of sense to add him to see how this new opportunity works out.
Mar 2 - 5:31 PM

Terrence Jones reportedly had preliminary talks with the Celtics, but a deal is unlikely.

Boston would not be a good landing spot for Jones at all, so hopefully, nothing becomes of this report. Jones is in a contract year, so chances are he'll want to put himself in a situation where he can prove his worth. However, until he's actually in the "advanced discussion" phase of a new contract signing, he can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Terrence Jones cleared waivers on Saturday.

It's a little surprising that nobody picked up Jones on his cheap contract. Some team should be after Jones as a backup, but he's not the best stash candidate unless your waiver wire is dry.

Pelicans waive F Terrence Jones.

With the addition of DeMarcus Cousins, there just isn't going to be minutes for Jones in New Orleans. He should certainly receive some interest in the free agent market and some of the bad teams could claim him to give him minutes. Chances are his fantasy value drops on a new team, but he could still be worth stashing in deeper leagues to see where he winds up.
Feb 23 - 5:58 PM

The Pelicans are now expected to waive Terrence Jones, according to Justin Verrier of

He wasn't on the practice floor today and the Pelicans likely wanted to unload him for cheap on a deal. Jones will be one of many players teams will go after in the free agent market following the deadline. He is likely going to see a smaller role than what he had in the first half, so he may not be worth owning in standard leagues going forward.
Feb 23 - 3:16 PM

Trade candidates Terrence Jones and Omer Asik (illness) were both missing from Pelicans shootaround on Thursday prior to tonight's game against the Rockets.

Jones is technically dealing with a thumb injury but this is more likely a trade holdout, as he's one of the players everyone expects to be moved today. Asik is listed as doubtful tonight due to his illness, but it would not be at all surprising to see both players traded in the next few hours.
