Despite his age, it appears as though veteran shooting guard Jason Terry has continued to draw some interest from around the league. While many have speculated that the seasoned two-guard will return to the Milwaukee Bucks for another go-round atop the highest level, it remains to be seen as to exactly where he lands come 2017-18.
“Jason Terry also made an appearance at the Summer League and, while it is generally assumed he’ll return to the Bucks for another season, it’s far from a slam dunk,” writes Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times. “According to league sources, the 39-year-old Terry, who gave the Bucks some quality leadership and 3-point shooting last season, has drawn interest from some other teams. An official with a Western Conference playoff-caliber team, who requested anonymity, confirmed his team is contemplating extending Terry a contract offer.”
Although slated to turn 40 years old in September, Terry has remained both a durable and effective player over the last several seasons. Most recently making 74 regular-season appearances for the aforementioned Bucks in 2016-17, he averaged 4.1 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 18.4 minutes per game. In addition, he shot just under 43 percent from behind the arc in what may become his only season in Milwaukee.
Prior to suiting up for the Bucks in 2016-17, Terry previously made appearances for the Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets and Houston Rockets. For his NBA career, the veteran shooting guard is currently averaging 13.8 points, 3.9 assists and 2.4 rebounds per outing.
