Jason Eugene Terry (born September 15, 1977 in Seattle , Washington ) is a retired American basketball player who was active in the NBA from 1999 to 2018 , most of it with the Dallas Mavericks . In his 19-year career, Terry won the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award (2009) and the 2011 NBA Championship with the Mavericks.
His nickname Jet comes from his initials ( J ason E ugene T erry). He was a very safe distance shooter and was nominated several times for the three-point shootout as part of the All-Star Games . He has the number 206 tattooed on his chest, the phone code for his hometown Seattle , and right below it is a tattoo of the city skyline . Although Dallas was only given outsider opportunities prior to the start of the 2010/11 season , he got the Larry O'Brien NBA Championship Trophy tattooed on his right bicep during a team meeting on October 19, 2010 and actually won the championship that season.
Terry grew up as one of ten children of Andrea Cheatham and Curtis Terry. He and his wife Johniyka have four daughters: Jasionna, Jalayah, Jaida and Jasa. He founded the Jason Terry Foundation, which offers both academic and athletic programs for Seattle teenagers.
Atlanta Hawks (1999-2004)
His career began in the 1999 NBA Draft , where he was selected 10th by the Atlanta Hawks . After a mixed first season, in which he was able to fight for a place on the starting grid and was appointed to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team , he increased his average in his second season from 8 to almost 20 points per game. This season he set his career best of 46 points. With the Hawks he was the first option in attack for five years, but had hardly any good teammates around, so he demanded a move and in August 2004 with Alan Henderson and a first-round pick in exchange for Antoine Walker and Tony Delk was sent to the Dallas Mavericks .
Dallas Mavericks (2004-2012)
Terry became one of the best sixth men in the league with the Dallas Mavericks and reached the playoffs there every year , even the finals twice. In the 2005/06 season the team lost to the Miami Heat .
In the 2010/11 season, the team reached the final again and, like five years earlier, met the Heat. This time Dallas was able to prevail after a series deficit with 4: 2 and Terry became NBA champion for the first time, where he was named top scorer and player of the game with 27 points in the last decisive game 6.
Although Terry recorded his statistically best season in his time with the Hawks, his extremely important role as Sixth Man was honored with the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award in the 2008-09 season . In the playoffs Terry was able to achieve an NBA playoff record by converting 9 three-point throws in one game in the 4th game against the Los Angeles Lakers . He shares this record with Vince Carter , Ray Allen and Rex Chapman. He finished the game with a three-way odds of 90%.
Boston Celtics (2012-2013)
After the shortened lockout season 2011/2012 Terry left the Mavs and signed a three-year contract with the Boston Celtics . In his first season with the Celtics, Terry averaged twelve points per game and, like in Dallas, mostly came off the bench. Against the New York Knicks, the Celtics were eliminated in the 2013 playoffs in the first round.
Brooklyn Nets (2013-2014)
After Draft Night 2013, the Celtics announced that Terry would be transferred to the Brooklyn Nets along with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett . This cleared the way for the Celtics to rebuild the team with younger players. In Brooklyn Terry played under head coach Jason Kidd , who was his teammate when he won the championship at the Dallas Mavericks in 2011. During the current season, Jason Terry was traded to the Sacramento Kings .
Sacramento Kings (2014)
However, Terry was unable to convince the Nets as hoped. Due to injuries he missed a large number of games. Shortly before the transfer deadline, the Nets Terry finally traded to the Sacramento Kings . In return, Guard Marcus Thornton moved to Brooklyn. Without making a single game for the Kings, Terry fell out with a knee injury.
Houston Rockets (2014 to 2016)
At the end of the season Terry moved to the Houston Rockets . The Texans had reached a deal with the Sacramento Kings that brought the Sixth Man of the Year of 2009, plus 2 second-round picks to Houston. In return, the Kings received a "Trade Exception" as well as Alonzo Gee and Scotty Hopson .
Milwaukee Bucks (2016 to 2018)
On August 22, 2016, Terry signed with the Milwaukee Bucks . Terry only played sporadically due to his age and averaged 3.8 points at the Bucks in two years. Following the season, Terry ended his long-running NBA career at the age of 40.
Terry averaged 13.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.8 assists in over 1,400 NBA games during his 19-year career.
