Mason Jones is still on the Rockets’ roster but they had their opener postponed because of a shortage of players. The Rockets’ G-League team opened its season three weeks ago and as far as I can tell Mase hasn’t played in any games there.
Other NBA Hogs: Bobby Portis scored three points in his first game as a Buck, Gafford scored 5 points for the Bulls. Beverley scored 10 points in the Clips’ win over the Lakers.
Without a true off-season and summer league, I would be surprised if either Joe or Jones played significant minutes in the early season besides a blowout. I think they’re both just trying to figure out the pro game at this point.
I really like Jones chances of staying with the Rockets once Harden is traded.
Not certain, but I know a lot depends on their contract. Not sure about Joe, but I believe Mason has a 2 way contract. G League and NBA, with pay scales for each league, depending on which he’s playing in.
