The Houston Rockets sent a pair of rookies to their D-League affiliate.

The Houston Rockets sent rookies Scott Machado and Terrence Jones to their Developmental League affiliate Rio Grande Valley Vipers, according to beat writer Jonathan Feigen.

The two players should be available tonight for the Vipers, as the team will face the Tulsa 66ers, the Oklahoma City Thunder's D-League affiliate. Jones will get the chance to face off against former Kentucky teammate Jeremy Lamb.

The Rockets host the Utah Jazz tonight. Tip-off is at 7 p.m CT.
