Rockets forward Terrence Jones Wednesday pled not guilty to a harassment charge in his native Portland stemming from an incident where he allegedly kicked a homeless man outside a nightclub.

Jonathan Feigan of the Houston Chronicle had the details.

Everybody pleads “not guilty” at their arraignment, with any deals or a potential trial still in the future. It is likely some kind of plea deal is reached before this ever gets to any kind of trial.

Smart money says Jones and the Rockets simply want to have this go away as quickly and quietly as possible.
