Terrence Jones has deal with Bucks

He was waived by the Pelicans on February 23.

The Milwaukee Bucks have signed forward Terrence Jones to a contract for the remainder of the season.

He'll likely get an opportunity to play with the Bucks, who recently lost Jabari Parker for the rest of the season after suffering his second ACL tear. With the Rockets, Jones averaged 10.4 points and 5.8 rebounds. He was also rumored to be interested in joining the Celtics, but talks reportedly fell through because Jones wanted more significant playing time.

Either way, we can look back at his career thus far to find out what to expect from Terrence Jones going forward.

Jones started the season in New Orleans, where he was averaging 11.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, but the 25-year-old was deemed surplus by the Pelicans after they acquired DeMarcus Cousins. "He wants to play".

Marc Stein of ESPN and Shams Charania of The Vertical reported the news.

Jones won't be with the Bucks until Saturday, and it's now unclear if he'll be able to suit up for Milwaukee's game that night against the Toronto Raptors.

Jones may temporarily step into Beasley's role while he recovers. However, the Milwaukee are willing to give him a chance to prove his worth before giving it another shot in July.
