Terrence Jones’ first PBA stint didn’t end exactly the way he had always hoped it would as the top-seeded TNT KaTropa fell in 6 games to the San Miguel Beermen in the Finals of the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup.
Jones, however, isn’t sulking at all as the 27-year old former Houston Rockets forward is now setting his sights on a possible return to the biggest basketball stage in the world.
“If an opportunity to return to the PBA comes I’ll think about it but right now I’m just moving forward to my next chapter and that’s trying to get ready for the NBA season,” said Jones.
While earlier reports indicated the possibility of a return to the team that drafted him 18th overall in the 2012 NBA Draft, Jones said that he is open to suiting up for any team that would want his services.
“Right now, I’m preparing to just be ready for whatever team gives me the opportunity. If that’s Houston, you know, I have a familiar relationship with them and I know we’ll try to go win a championship,” said Jones who posted averages of 35.7 points, 14.7 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 2.7 steals, and 3.5 blocks in the championship series.
“I’m ready to get back home and start worrying about that. It’ll be something that I’m getting ready for now. I wasn’t really taking that into any consideration until my job was finished here first,” added the Best Import awardee.
