Report: Bucks near deal to bring in Jason Terry
The Milwaukee Bucks have a solid starting backcourt, with Matthew Dellavedova at the one and Kris Middleton at the two — and with Giannis Antetokounmpo as the point forward handling a lot of the playoff duties.
But behind them they Bucks are young, and they have questions at the two guard with Rashad Vaughn and Malcolm Brogdon vying for minutes.
Enter Jason Terry, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.
The Milwaukee Bucks are in advanced discussions to sign Jason Terry to bolster their backcourt and add a veteran presence, NBA sources say— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) August 19, 2016
Terry will be 39 by the time the season starts, but in a limited role he was fairly solid for the Rockets last season. He still has some playmaking skills, and he can catch-and-shoot to space the floor, hitting 35.6 percent from three last season. He’s also a little better defensively than one would expect.
In a limited role — 15 minutes a night? — he could provide some veteran stability on and off the court (and they likely can get him for the room exception). Assuming this is a one-year deal, it’s a respectable move for the Bucks. Not a game changer, but solid.
