SOMEONE’S coming home to the NBA.

After Terrence Jones’ astonishing stint in the Philippine Basketball Association, grabbing the Best Import of the Conference Award and reaching the finals, he finds himself back in familiar territory with the NBA.

Daryl Morey, the Houston Rockets general manager, has confirmed that Kenneth Faried and proven veteran Hilario Nene did not make the cut for the final roster.

Instead, Morey said over Rockets’ official website podcast “RocketsCast Live,” that it would be former Rocket Jones who will fill the final roster spot.

Before training camp starts this September, teams are in the process of completing their final rosters that will ball out in the next season.

No stranger to the Houston community, the Rockets drafted Jones last 2012 NBA Draft from the University of Kentucky and played four seasons after getting traded to the New Orleans Pelicans.
