The Houston Rockets and the Sacramento Kings has an agreement that will send veteran guard Jason Terry, to the Houston Rockets according to league sources. Jason Terry who has been a long time rival of the Rockets during his time playing with the Dallas Mavericks, should make this upcoming season an interest one.
Jason Terry now 36, spent eight years with the Dallas Mavericks before signing with the Boston Celtics after becoming a free agent in the 2012 free agency, then moved on to the Brooklyn Nets and the Sacramento Kings in 2013 and 2014. He also earn the sixth man of the year awards in 2009 and 2011.
The Rockets will send a package centered on non-guaranteed contracts, including Alonzo Gee, that the Kings can ultimately waive and gain salary savings and roster space, league sources said. Sacramento will send Houston two second-round picks in the deal, including one via the Knicks, league sources told Yahoo. The trade could take some time to officially complete, based on restrictions of contracts in the deal, league sources said. Sacramento had been trying to unload Terry and his $5.4 million expiring deal, and Houston had been searching for a playoff-sturdy guard to join its bench.
The Rockets lost restricted free agent Chandler Parsons to the Mavericks in July, a year after beating Dallas to free-agent center Dwight Howard.
