    Congrats Terrence Jones for getting that call. Soak up the experience, young man! What an honor.

    ESPN2
    9:30 CST
    Team USA Scrimmage

    All the heavy hitters are sitting, so this is more for the hopefuls and future hopefuls. Terrence could get some decent minutes. I wouldn't be surprised to see Harden and Howard cheering him on courtside.



    Why Jones, who didn’t get an invite to the camp? Several players, including Anthony Davis and John Wall, are sitting the scrimmage out, so five players were called in, including the Real T. Jones. Both he and Boogie will be on the White Team.

    Here are the complete rosters:
    Blue Team

    Harrison Barnes (Golden State Warriors)
    Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards)
    DeMar DeRozan (Toronto Raptors)
    Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons)
    Kenneth Faried (Denver Nuggets)
    Rudy Gay (Sacramento Kings)
    Amir Johnson (Boston Celtics)
    Victor Oladipo (Orlando Magic)
    Elfrid Payton (Orlando Magic)

    Coach: Monty Williams
    White Team

    Arron Afflalo (New York Knicks)
    Michael Carter-Williams (Milwaukee Bucks)
    DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento Kings)
    Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors)
    Blake Griffin (Los Angeles Clippers)
    Terrence Jones (Houston Rockets)
    Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio Spurs)
    Mason Plumlee (Portland Trail Blazers)
    Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors)
    C.J. Watson (Orlando Magic)

    Coach: Tom Thibodeau

    In camp but not playing: Jimmy Butler (Chicago Bulls), Mike Conley (Memphis Grizzlies), Tobias Harris (Orlando Magic), DeAndre Jordan (Los Angeles Clippers), LaMarcus Aldridge (San Antonio Spurs), Carmelo Anthony (New York Knicks), Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans), Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder), Paul George (Indiana Pacers), James Harden (Houston Rockets), Gordon Hayward (Utah Jazz), Dwight Howard (Houston Rockets), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers), LeBron James (Cleveland Cavaliers), Kevin Love (Celveland Cavaliers), Chandler Parsons (Dallas Mavericks), John Wall (Washington Wizards), Chris Paul (Los Angeles Clippers), Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder).

    Why is Terrence with all the White guys? Griffin, Carter-Williams, Plumlee and Thompson.

    This sucks for people that bought tickets, at Summer League they were advertising it as if the marquee players were playing this scrimmage.

    "The Real T. Jones"? I wonder what the story is behind that nickname.

    Kentucky sports news source, so it's probably a Cats thing.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Rockets + Cats connections got him the sweet invite. Harden,Howard,Anthony Davis, Boogie....

    meanwhile I read how Derek Favors was all butthurt for not getting an envelope...lol

    I was coming to post this... But I see y'all beat me to it. It will be interesting to see TJ play completely healthy again.

    Really nervous about this. I still cringe at what happened to Paul George last summer. Hoping our guys stay healthy.

    Lol, there's absolutely no defense in this game. Literally, NO defense in the paint. LITERALLY. If you get past 3 point line you have open road to a layup.

    appears that he's put on some upper body muscle this summer, but he looked slow and unmotivated in the first half.

    Can't watch at work - but is he still dodging contact?

    Extra upper body muscle is good as long as he plans on using it in the paint regularly.

    You can't really tell anything from this nonsense. It's like the All Star game but less intense with all of the actual All Stars not in the game.
