The Rockets announced on Friday morning they are sending Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas to their D-League affiliate in Rio Grande Valley.
Both have spent time with the Vipers earlier this season and both have excelled.
Jones was assigned to the Vipers on Nov. 30 and recalled on Dec. 3. While there, he averaged 22.5 points and 17.5 rebounds in two starts with Rio Grande Valley.
Motiejunas was assigned to Rio Grande Valley on Nov. 13 and recalled on Nov. 25. He averaged 24.0 points and 9.5 rebounds in two starts with the Vipers.
"It's a short little trip for the guys," Kevin McHale said after Friday's shootaround. "Get a practice in and then play, I think, probably Saturday Sunday (he's right), and then I think they'll be back early next week with us. So it's a good chance for them to get a couple of games in.
"I think playing helps them a great deal. They're going to have to play."
