Terry himself said it first when discussing his new deal with Bucks reporter Jim Paschke–his biggest strength at this stage in his career is the leadership he can bring to Milwaukee.
Terry is selling himself short by forgetting to mention his playing ability, though. He’s still got some game left in him, as he showcased last season with the Houston Rockets. Although it was somewhat of a down reason for the Jet, he still played pretty well.
Terry got into 72 games with Houston, and played over 17 minutes per game. He shot 35.6 percent from three-point range in that time, although he scored under six points a game.
Those kind of numbers may not seem like much, but the threat of Terry at the three-point line will be enough to open up some space for the rest of Milwaukee’s offense, which is crucially important considering the team plans to run through Point Giannis this year.
Terry found himself getting even more time in the postseason, playing in all five of Houston’s games and getting nearly 25 minutes per game in that series. Unfortunately his efficiency dropped off a bit with the increased minutes load, although he did bump up his scoring to seven points per game.
