ABOUT TERRENCE JONES
Portland is home to Jones, leading Jefferson High School to three straight Oregon class 5A State Championships between his sophomore and senior years, averaging 32 points and 14 rebounds going to the McDonalds All American Game and Jordan Brand Classic in 2010. Taking his talents to Kentucky, Jones became an NCAA National Champion; he was one of just six players in UK history to record 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 140 blocks in a career. Now a member of the Houston Rockets, who drafted Jones in 2012, he gives back to the community he is from as well as where he resides during the NBA season.
