Terry acknowledged Saturday that he has retired from professional basketball unless he receives a contract offer from the Lakers, Warriors or Mavericks, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.
Terry presumably favors the former two landing spots for the opportunity to contend for another NBA title, while a reunion with the Mavericks would come more for nostalgic reasons. In any case, it doesn't seem likely that Terry will draw serious interest from any of the three clubs, given that he didn't take part in training camp anywhere and turned 41 years old in September. If this is indeed the end for the veteran guard, he'll wrap up his career with averages of 13.4 points, 3.8 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 29.8 minutes per game across stops in Atlanta, Dallas, Boston, Brooklyn, Houston and Milwaukee over 19 seasons. Terry captured his lone NBA title with the Mavericks during the 2010-11 season.
Terry indicated that he intends to play another season in the NBA and would like it to be with Milwaukee, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Terry has seen his role diminish as a player, playing just 51 games this past season, averaging 3.3 points across 16.0 minutes on 34.8 percent shooting from deep. But, he wants to "see things through" with the Bucks, seemingly as a veteran leader.
Terry did not record a point (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), but added two assists, two rebounds and one steal in 14 minutes during Thursday's 119-111 loss to the visiting Nets.
This was Terry's third game during his last four in which he has failed to score a point, even though he is seeing an average of 20.7 minutes in each of those games. Currently, the former Arizona star is averaging 3.2 points and 1.2 assists over 16.1 minutes per game during his 14th season in the league.
Terry tallied just eight points (3-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, three steals and two rebounds in 21 minutes during Thursday's 116-107 victory over the Warriors.
Terry moved back to the bench Thursday and saw a dip in his playing time. He didn't offer a lot in terms of fantasy value but was able to contribute three steals. That makes nine steals over his past three games, something that is likely going to dissipate at any time. He could move back into the starting lineup at some stage but remains a deeper league option only.
Terry will come off the bench Thursday against the Warriors, with Tony Snell re-joining the starting lineup.
Terry will return to his regular role off the bench after the veteran started in the past two contests. Off the pine, Terry has averaged 3.0 points, 1.1 assists and 0.9 rebounds per contest in just over 14 minutes per game this season.
Terry supplied 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists and five steals across 32 minutes in Tuesday's 105-98 loss to the Clippers.
The veteran continues to draw starts at shooting guard in place of the unproductive Tony Snell, with Tuesday's effort representing a nice bounce-back from a three-point clunker against the Spurs on Sunday. Terry has shot well in two of his last three games, with Tuesday's 57.1 percent success rate preceded by a 75.0 percent tally against the Bulls two games ago. While he won't provide much in non-scoring categories, his five steals against the Clippers served to round out his final line quite nicely and represented a season high.
Terry will start at shooting guard for Sunday's game against the Spurs, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Bucks have alternated their starting shooting guard over the last few games, trying out both Terry and Sterling Brown instead of Tony Snell. After going with Brown Friday, Terry will now get switched into the top unit and should be in line for extended playing time once again. Terry has logged 30 and 29 minutes, respectively, over his last few games, though he's still nothing more than a three-point specialist at best.
Terry will come off the bench for Friday's tilt against the Bulls while Sterling Brown draws the start, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The Bucks have been struggling and Brown went to high school just outside of Chicago, so coach Joe Prunty may be trying to light a spark by inserting him into the starting five. As a result, Terry will head to the pine -- a role where he averages 2.8 points and 1.1 assists across 13.7 minutes per game.
Terry had only six points (2-6 FG, 2-6 3Pt), two assists and one rebound in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 127-120 loss to th Clippers.
Terry moved into the starting lineup to replace Tony Snell, but recorded just six points with very little else. It is unclear whether this move will stick, but nonetheless, he will be related to the bench once both Malcolm Brogdon (quad) and Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) make their returns. Terry belongs on the waivers in basically all formats.
Terry will draw the start Wednesday against the Clippers, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Terry's move to the starting five bumps Tony Snell to the bench. The Bucks' starters have struggled since the All-Star break, so it looks as though they are trying to shake things up with the starting lineup. It's uncertain if Terry will remain in the starting five long term, but this move should lead to an uptick in his minutes.
Terry scored six points (2-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt) while adding three blocks, a rebound and a steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 103-96 loss to the Pacers.
The last time the 40-year-old blocked three shots in a game was over seven years ago. Terry was pressed into duty in the starting five due to all the Bucks' injuries, and while at this stage of his career he doesn't have much of a fantasy ceiling, he could be worth using as a bargain DFS flyer until younger legs start returning to the backcourt rotation.
Terry will start over Sterling Brown at shooting guard for Friday's contest against the Pacers, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
After being blown out by the Pistons on Wednesday, coach Joe Prunty has opted to switch up the team's starting five. Terry has seen an increased role within the rotation over the past four games, averaging 5.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 20.5 minutes while shooting 40.0 percent from three on 3.8 attempts.
Terry said Saturday that he intends to play during the 2018-19 season, Genaro C. Armas of the Associated Press reports. "For sure, 100 percent, my goal is to play 20 seasons," Terry said."The [Milwaukee] organization understands that and I think the league is on notice."
Terry is still holding down a rotation role for the Bucks in his 19th NBA season, with the 40-year-old averaging 2.6 points in 11.9 minutes per game over 28 appearances while shooting 36.2 percent from 3-point range. With his contract set to expire after the current season, Terry will hit free agency in July, but if he remains serious about continuing his career, the veteran guard shouldn't have much difficulty securing a one-year deal from a team. Even so, Terry likely wouldn't be in store for a larger role than the minimal one he's maintained with the Bucks. Instead, he would provide his greatest impact for any team as a positive locker-room presence.
Terry scored 14 points (4-5 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), grabbed two rebounds, dished one assist and snatched one steal across 26 minutes Friday in Milwaukee's win over Toronto.
The Jet poured in 14 points, a season-high, Friday against Toronto. His scoring and three-point shooting came in handy during the OT victory. His fantasy value is limited, but the 40-year-old deserves some props for the performance. Looking ahead, Terry could prove to be a useful piece off the bench as the Bucks claw their way through the East.
Terry scored 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt) while adding one rebound in 15 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 111-104 win over the Magic.
The veteran guard scored all his points in the second half, providing a key boost that helped the Bucks overcome a four-point deficit at the half. Terry is little more than a player-coach at this stage of his career -- he's scored in double digits only twice all season -- but he's been showing flashes of his old form lately, going 10-for-17 (58.8 percent) from three-point range over his last six games.
Terry (personal) logged two minutes in Sunday's 109-94 win over the Nets, recording no statistics during his time on the floor.
Terry had missed the Bucks' last two games to tend to a personal situation, but rejoined the team in New York for the start of a four-game road trip. Though he was on the periphery of interim head coach Joe Prunty's rotation, Terry could see his court time increase Tuesday against the Knicks with key reserve guard Matthew Dellavedova uncertain to play in that contest after spraining his right ankle in the fourth quarter against Brooklyn and not returning.
Terry (personal) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Brooklyn.
The veteran was held out of Friday's win over the Knicks while attending to a personal issue, but the Bucks' game notes for Saturday's game indicate that he'll be back in the mix. Terry has seen an increase in minutes since the Bucks changed coaches, and he could maintain that role going forward after the Bucks lost Malcolm Brogdon to injury on Thursday.
Terry (personal) will remain out Friday against the Knicks, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.
Terry will miss a second straight game for personal reasons and should be considered day-to-day in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Nets in Brooklyn. The veteran has not been fantasy-relevant this season, but he's recently taken on a more significant role in the Bucks' rotation, playing between 13 and 18 minutes in his last four active contests.
Terry has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves for personal reasons, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Specifics regarding the issue have yet to be released, but with the Bucks playing a back-to-back set Thursday and Friday, it's possible Terry will be forced to miss more than one contest. His status should be updated prior to Friday's tilt. In the meantime, Sterling Brown, Matthew Dellavedova, Sean Kilpatrick and Rashad Vaughn are all candidates to see a slight uptick in minutes with Terry unavailable.
Terry scored 12 points (4-6 FG, 4-6 3PT) in 18 minutes during Sunday's 110-96 win against Chicago.
On Sunday, Terry was solely a three-point shooter from the bench against Chicago. The veteran guard responded with an efficient 4-of-6 from beyond the arc for a season-high 12 points. While this performance was noteworthy, Terry is a fantasy afterthought this season. Through 19 games, Sunday's scoring performance was his first output of more than four points all season. In addition, it was his first points since December 29.
