    Here we go again...

    This is the 6th time this season (11/30, 12/14, 12/26, 1/16, 2/1 and today) that the Rockets have assigned Jones to the D-League.

    Maybe they wanted him to develop in the D league, but didn't want Royce "The Rim" White to exercise his cancerous influence on him?

    Clearly TJ is either trade-bait in the off-season, or has just always been considered a 'We'll see what he can do next year' guy by the organization. Hopefully he uses this year to make himself mentally strong and to hone his skills.

    And in case this stings for him, which it very well might, he should just look at the Rockets' history with Chuck Hayes, and see how that all turned out.

    Clearly with TJones going down, the Vipers have a better chance of winning now that Royce left.

    TJones is way better than Royce.

    Maybe, DM forcing Mchale to showcase T-rob for trade in the offseason. Jones make the rotation next year.

    The Rockets are usually pretty good at determining when players are ready to play. My understanding is that Jones has the physical skills but is having difficulty knowing where he is supposed to be on the floor.

    I really feel Jones could be helping the Rox this year. His skill set is needed by the Rox. I feel the only reason they are playing TRob over Jones is because he was a top 5 lottery pick and they feel they have to give him a chance over Jones at this point. Oh well...

    Sounds more interesting to speculate on trade scenarios or coaching conflicts than if he just came back from a hand injury and is cleared to play, albeit with the RGV.

    The few minutes he got while on the rox he didn't appear to be out of position. I know that's not practice but what he did with those minutes appeared to be enough to earn more pt

    You are talking about T-Jones...

    I'm talking about T-Rob..

    But you are correct about people speculating... A lot of posters are like characters from Lord of the Flies... One person states something and they just run to every thread repeating something that they have no knowledge of...
