2012 NBA Draft Results: Terrence Jones Selected By Rockets With No. 18 Pick

With the No. 18 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets selected Terrence Jones from Kentucky.

Jones was the old man at Kentucky ... as a sophomore. He arrived in Lexington with Brandon Knight (a lottery pick in 2011) and left with Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and a national championship. He subjugated his own game for the team, but still offered up tremendous defense and timely offense. He's comparable to Earl Clark and the Morris twins. If he can extend his jumper out to the three-point line, morphing into an Al Harrington type could be in the cards. But as was the case in '12, his calling card early in his career will need to be defense.
