On Tuesday, the Texas Legends announced that they hired Jason Terry as their new assistant general manager. Terry is a former 18 year NBA veteran, who spent eight seasons with the Dallas Mavericks.
“It’s great to begin my front office career here. The Dallas area has been home to me and my family for many years and the Mavericks franchise has always been family. To get to work with this organization in this capacity is exciting. I look forward to getting started,” said Terry.
In 2004, the Mavericks sent Antoine Walker and Tony Delk to the Atlanta Hawks for Jason Terry and Alan Henderson. Terry would help lead the Mavericks to the NBA Finals in 2006 and 2008. They would lose the first matchup against the Miami Heat but were able to capture the franchise first title in 2011. He averaged 16.1 points, 4.1 assists, and 1.2 steals in 32.7 minutes per game with the Mavs. Terry Also went on to win the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award in 2009
Last month, Terry spoke with Fanatics View as a member of the Big 3 basketball league about the possibility of him signing a one day contract and retiring as a Dallas Maverick.
” Listen, I will sign a 20… Matter of fact, I will sign a lifetime deal with the Mavericks to come back, coach, scout any position Mark Cuban will bless me with,” said Terry.
Terry last played in the NBA as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks in 2018. Since his time away from the game, Terry was a part of the broadcast crew on NBA TV and TNT’s Players Only. TNT back in July announced that the segment of Players Only would not be returning. He was also a part of the third annual season of Ice Cube’s 3 on 3 basketball league the Big 3 as a member of Trilogy. Terry also did some work with the Pac 12 Network and ESPN.
During his career, Terry averaged 13.4 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game.
