The Houston Rockets have picked up contract options for both Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas for the 2014-2015 season. Jones put together a solid preseason before suffering an injury, as he had averaged 7.5 points in 25 minutes in 4 games. Motiejunas, on the other hand, showed signs of his upside, but continues to remain inconsistent, as Omri Casspi seems to have taken over the backup power forward spot. Still, his skill-set gives him a high potential to become a productive NBA player, which is why general manager Daryl Morey continues to be high on him.
