Now that he’s officially been signed, did the Milwaukee Bucks do well by making veteran guard Jason Terry their 14th man?
It was no surprise to any Milwaukee Bucks fans who keep an eye on Bucks rumors, but on Monday night the team made it official and signed veteran guard Jason Terry to a contract, making him the 14th Buck under contract for the 2016-17 NBA season.
The Jet is a smart veteran player, and one who seems genuinely excited to be a part of this young Bucks team going forward. His experience and leadership should be huge for this team–Terry will be the first real veteran voice on the Bucks since Jared Dudley.
Going out of their way to get a veteran is a good look for the Bucks, who floundered without an outspoken locker room leader last season. The Jet should have a lot to offer to the young Bucks, especially Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Jabari Parker.

On the other hand, Terry has really earned that veteran status. He’ll turn 39 in mid-September, making him the oldest Milwaukee Buck to ever suit up. Does the Jet have enough fuel left to take off this season?
His contract is almost certainly veteran minimum, but is that good value for a 39-year-old, even one as experienced as Jason Terry? We’ll go through the pros and cons of this deal, as well as the value of the deal and Terry’s fit with the team, to see if the Milwaukee Bucks did well in signing the Jet.
