Terrence Jones will not receive a qualifying offer from the Rockets, while Donatas Motiejunas has received one and is now a restricted free agent.
The fall of Jones in Houston is mysterious and not getting a qualifying offer is just the most recent event in that sequence. They probably know more about the many ailments that Jones has faced and if there are any off-court issues pushing his drop-off. That said, the Rockets haven’t exactly been a tight ship for a while now and if a team can perform due diligence and get a green light they might see some upside here. Motiejunas’ back issues are front and center and he’ll have to prove his can stay on the floor.
