Terrence Jones in Taiwan league
FORMER PBA Best import Terrence Jones is set to see action in Taiwan’s P. League+.
The 30-year-old Jones joins another former PBA import Manny Harris in the Steelers lineup.
The 2019 Commissioner’s Cup Best Import, Jones led the TNT Tropang Giga to the finals of the PBA’s mid-season conference but lost to fellow NBA player Chris McCullough and the San Miguel Beermen in six games.
Jones is expected to make an instant impact for the Steelers, who are 0-3 in the tournament.
