Veteran shooting guard Jason Terry is meeting with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to Gery Woelfel. The shooter will complete a workout and meet with team officials.
According to Woelfel, his incumbent team, the Milwaukee Bucks, are interested in bringing the vet back, as well:
It’s no secret the Milwaukee Bucks would like to retain Terry’s services, but they are likely to draw competition for his services from the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Timberwolves, one of the NBA’s up-and-coming teams, have expressed more than a passing interest in Terry and that’s indicative of them bringing the veteran guard to Minneapolis for a workout and meeting with team officials, including Tom Thibodeau, the Timberwolves president of basketball operations and head coach. Sources said Terry arrived in Minneapolis on Sunday and is expected to be there for two days.
Terry appeared in 74 games, all off the bench, in his lone season in Milwaukee. The 40-year-old averaged a career-low 4.1 points per game but shot 42.7 percent from three.
Both the Wolves and Bucks are in dire need of shooting and Terry can provide that. He is a defensive liability and as such cannot play heavy minutes, but the veteran has one important skill that can be of use to both teams.
