2012 NBA Free Agency: Jason Terry Agrees To Deal With Boston

Jason Terry has agreed to a three-year contract with the Boston Celtics and will leave the Dallas Mavericks just one season removed from winning an NBA championship. The Celtics will use its entire mid-level exception on Terry with the total value of the deal being worth $15.6 million.

Terry was a key contributor off the bench for the Dallas Mavericks during their 2011 championship run. He was originally selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the 10th pick in the 1999 NBA Draft. Atlanta received that pick from Golden State in exchange for veteran point guard Mookie Blaylock. Terry played five seasons in Atlanta before being moved to Dallas for Antoine Walker and Tony Delk.

Terry was named as the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year for the 2008-09 season. He is expected to fill that same role with the Celtics.
