Veteran guard Jason Terry has spoken repeatedly this year about wanting to play 20 NBA seasons, and with the offseason around the corner, he hasn’t changed his tune. Terry, who is coming off his 19th year in the NBA, said during his exit interview with the media that he intends to play one more season and wants it to be with the Bucks, per Matt Velazquez of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (Twitter link).
According to Velazquez, Terry said he has already talked to Bucks management about the possibility of spending the 2018/19 season in Milwaukee. Having been with the club for the last two years, the 40-year-old no longer has a major role in the rotation, but he has been a respected voice in the locker room.
“Obviously I know my impact,” Terry said, per an AP report (link via ESPN.com). “I’ve been here two years now. I want to see the process, the finished product, because I know the potential.”
The Bucks don’t project to have any cap room this summer, with more than $98MM in guaranteed money already on their books and Jabari Parker up for a new contract. That could work in Terry’s favor, however. Since he won’t expect more than a minimum-salary contract, the NBA’s active leader in career three-pointers could help the Bucks fill out the back of their roster on the cheap.
