Milwaukee Bucks sign free agent guard Jason Terry

MILWAUKEE (AP) The Milwaukee Bucks have signed free agent guard Jason Terry.

The team announced the signing Monday. Terms were not disclosed.

Bucks general manager John Hammond calls the 38-year-old Terry ''a true professional who understands what it takes to be successful'' in the NBA.

The 17-year NBA veteran spent the last two seasons with Houston. Terry played in 72 games, including seven starts, with the Rockets last season, averaging 5.9 points, 1.4 assists and 1.1 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game.

The 6-foot-2 guard was selected by Atlanta with the 10th overall pick in the 1999 draft and spent the first five seasons of his career with the Hawks.

Terry then played eight seasons with Dallas, including the Mavericks' 2011 NBA Championship team. He also has played for Boston and Brooklyn.
