Terrence Jones is getting another shot at the NBA level.
According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, Jones has been picked up by the Milwaukee Bucks for the remainder of the 2016-17 season.
Jones had been waived by the New Orleans Pelicans on Feb. 23.

This is a relatively low-risk deal for the Bucks, and a good opportunity for Jones, who is still young. He’s in his fifth season in the league, but just turned 25 in January.
The Bucks are competing for a playoff spot; at 26-33 they are two games back of the Detroit Pistons for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference. Jones, who averaged 11.5 points and 5.9 rebounds in 51 games (12 starts) for the Pels this year, gets the chance to play with one of the NBA’s top young players in Giannis Antetokounmpo.
