Jason Terry is old now, by NBA standards. There’s simply no way around it. Houston unknowingly showed the Bucks what not to do in the postseason last year–giving Terry too many minutes isn’t a good idea at this point.
Somewhere around 15 or 18 at the most minutes per game is probably Terry’s max at this point. That’s not a horrible thing considering the young players Milwaukee has that need their minutes, but it does prevent Terry from being a true stand-in starter at this point.
Terry’s leadership and spacing will certainly be important, but that might be all he provides the Bucks next season. He averaged just 5.9 points, 1.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.7 steals per game with the Rockets last year. The Bucks don’t necessarily need him to put up big numbers, but his impact will be mostly felt in the locker room, not on the stat sheet.
The Jet had his worst three-point shooting season since 2004 last year. Hopefully that’s just an aberration and not a trend, but it will be something to watch for. As explored in a piece concerning Ray Allen, it’s exceptionally rare for guards to hold up once they near and reach age 40.
