NBA: Rockets F Terrence Jones Allegedly Stomps on Homeless Man

Jul 31 2013, 9:43pm CDT | by

Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to a charge of harassment in Portland after he allegedly shouted at and stomped on a homeless man.

Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones pleaded not guilty to a charge of harassment after he allegedly stomped on a homeless man. 

The Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen writes Jones also shouted at the homeless man. The 21-year-old Jones was arrested at 2:07 a.m. PT with a Class B misdemeanor. He was subsequently released four hours later and is now awaiting a Septembe 6 trial in the Multnomah County Circuit Court, per Feigen.  

Sgt. Anthony Passadore saw Jones hang out with a group of eight and walk past two men who were sleeping on a doorway at around 2 a.m. He then yelled at them to "wake up" and then stomped on one of the men's legs. He was taken into custody around a half block away from the incident. 

According to Maxine Bernstein of the Oregonian, the exact location of the incident was along Northwest Third Avenue. Referring to the district attorney's criminal information document presented in court, Bernstein says the 21-year-old Jones is accused of "unlawfully and intentionally" harassing and annoying the man by subjecting him to "offensive physical conduct."

Jones' lawyer, Kevin O'Connell, said his client will fight the charge. They also deny Jones ever stomping on the homeless man's leg. The man was identified as 46-year-old Daniel John Kellerher, who suffered a minor injury. 

Jones is a Portland native who graduated from Jefferson High School before moving on to the University of Kentucky. He was part of the Wildcats team that won the 2012 NCAA championship. 

In 19 games in the 2012-13 NBA season, he averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds.

Pressure Is on Houston Rockets Youngsters to Step Up This Season

Aug 13 2014 3:37pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Houston Rockets' younger players are being pressed into a greater role this year, and the team’s prospects depend very much on how well they respond. Can the kids step up and meet the demand? In order to free up cap space to go after Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh or both, the Houston Rockets lost three of their more productive role players from last season: Chandler Parsons (arguably a star in his ...

Who Will Be the Houston Rockets' 3rd Scorer Next Season?

Aug 11 2014 9:52pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A retooled Houston Rockets squad will take the floor with fresh questions in the 2014-15 season, and this is perhaps the most prevalent: Who will be its third scorer? With Chandler Parsons gone, there will be a productivity hole left open. There’s a blind spot of offensive creation behind the James Harden-Dwight Howard juggernaut and no clear successor to the role. Houston has a handful of less headline-grabbing ...

Houston Rockets Players Who Will Make a Big Jump in 2014-15

Aug 7 2014 3:46pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Houston Rockets are better than you think they are—so long as a few players take important steps forward in their upcoming campaign. Roster fluctuations that occur in free agency can be somewhat illusory. The Rockets have been mocked for striking out on Chris Bosh and losing Chandler Parsons, Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik this summer. More big names have gone out the door than have come through it in Houston this summer.  Trevor Ariza, for example, is hardly a starry acquisition. But he’ ...

Why Chandler Parsons Is An Excellent Complement to Dirk Nowitzki

Jul 31 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Maybe Chandler Parsons' three-year, $46 million contract is a bit bloated; maybe it isn't. But no matter how much you value a promising offensive piece with three-point range and a solid game off the bounce, there's no question that he'll fit seamlessly into the Dallas Mavericks offense alongside Dirk Nowitzki.  With addition of Tyson Chandler to solidify the back end of the defense, Parsons will likely take over as the starting small forward—his former position ...

Are Houston Rockets Still a Top-4 Western Conference Team?

Jul 29 2014 6:24pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Who are the Houston Rockets? As they continue to work through an NBA offseason that was once dressed in promise and optimism and grand ambitions but is now steeped in disappointment, it's a fair question. And it's a malleable inquiry at that, not one stringently limited to the scope of how it's phrased. With one question, we're asking a vast number of different things. Are the Rockets who they think they ...

Why Did Houston Rockets Give Up After Striking out on Chris Bosh?

Jul 27 2014 9:18pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After hitting home runs in the offseason of 2012 with James Harden and 2013 with Dwight Howard, the Houston Rockets went for a third. But, after attempting to nab either Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh, they struck out and then seemingly quit. There were other high-caliber—albeit restricted—free agents available, such as Eric Bledsoe of the Phoenix Suns and Greg Monroe of the Detroit Pistons. So why didn’t the Rockets keep gunning f ...

James Harden Says Truthful Thing, Everyone Gets Mad

Jul 24 2014 4:37pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

The sports media world is buzzing about comments Rockets guard and defensive virtuoso James Harden gave to The Phillipine Star recently, when asked about the team’s loss of Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin. Here are the comments, in case you missed them: “Dwight (Howard) and I are the cornerstones of the Rockets,” said Harden. “The rest of the guys are role players or pieces that complete our team. We’ve lost some pieces and added some pieces. I think we’ll be fine next season.” Here’s the ...
