Mavericks shooting guard Jason Terry is interested in exploring signing with the Heat when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this offseason, reports Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida. His comments about the Heat come in the wake of the Mavericks not offering the former Arizona star a contract extension this past offseason as they attempt to clear salary cap space with hopes of making a splashy signing. Terry, 34, is currently averaging 15.2 PPG and 3.5 APG in 49 games with the Mavs.
"No question, they need a veteran shooter, a guy who can score besides LeBron (James) and (Dwyane Wade), and they know they can count on. I'm a guy that's been in this league 13 years, (averaging) 15 points a night, easy. Off the bench or the starting lineup, it doesn't matter. So I think I'd be an asset to them."
