Bucks Re-Sign Jason Terry

SEPTEMBER 18: The Bucks have officially re-signed Terry, the team announced today in a press release. Terry’s new deal will give him the ability to veto trades during the 2017/18 season.

SEPTEMBER 15: The Bucks are signing Jason Terry to a one-year, $2.3M deal, Shams Charania of The Vertical tweets. It’s a guaranteed minimum salary deal for Terry, who will earn $2,328,652 despite only counting for about $1.471MM against Milwaukee’s cap.

Now on the verge of his 19th professional campaign, Terry brings his considerable wealth of knowledge (not to mention his respectable stroke from beyond the arc) back to the young Bucks roster. The veteran, who is celebrating his 40th birthday today, logged 18.4 minutes per game in 74 contests with Milwaukee last season.

The decision to bring back Terry for a second year with the club will increase Milwaukee’s guaranteed contract total up to 14 players, although it’s not clear what sort of on-court role he’ll actually see in 2017/18.

The Bucks watched Malcolm Brogdon blossom into a Rookie of the Year at the point last year, backed up by the ever-scrappy Matthew Dellavedova. Similarly, at the two, they’ve already re-signed Tony Snell (at over $9M this year) and may look to integrate third-year man Rashad Vaughn.

The logjam in the backcourt, however, likely had little bearing on the guard’s free agency either way. Considering that Milwaukee has officially arrived on the scene as an upstart playoff contender, simply having someone with Terry’s experience swinging towels on the sidelines will likely pay off in the end.

    Not that I dislike it but aren’t there better players out there to contribute to our team? I’d love to have him as an assistant coach but he’ll take away time from brown

      Dan the fan — the NYK just signed Jarrett Jack, to give you a glimpse of who’s left in the FA market.

      JET is a great fit, happy to play 10 mins/gal and hit the occasional dagger 3.

      That’s the first towel-swinging I’ve seen for Sterling Brown. Good stats though!
      JTerry was the one who started the comeback against Miami for the title. He would not stop believing and played like it. The rest of the Mavs followed suit and it came true! He’s got the stuff that that stretched-out ream needs if he can pass it along.
