Rockets Acquire G Jason Terry from Kings

Rockets Acquire G Jason Terry from Kings

Thomas Northcut/Thinkstock(HOUSTON) -- The Sacramento Kings dealt guard Jason Terry and draft picks to the Houston Rockets on Wednesday for forward Alonzo Gee and guard Scotty Hopson.

In 35 games with the Brooklyn Nets last season, Terry averaged 4.5 points and 1.6 assists per game. He was dealt to the Kings along with forward Reggie Evans on Feb. 19 for guard Marcus Thornton.  Terry did not appear in a game with Sacramento due to knee issues. The 15-year veteran is second among active players with 1,950 three-pointers.

The Rockets acquired Gee and Hopson in a three-team trade with the Washington Wizards and New Orleans Pelicans during this offseason that also included forward Trevor Ariza.

ESPN: Kings Sending Guard Jason Terry to the Rockets

ESPN: Kings Sending Guard Jason Terry to the Rockets

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- He may not be the player he used to be, but the Houston Rockets are rolling the dice on veteran guard Jason Terry. ESPN reports that the Sacramento Kings will send Terry to Houston.

While the deal is not yet officially completed, the Rockets will also receive two second-round draft picks from the Kings while they will send guard/forward Alonzo Gee to Sacramento.

The 36-year-old Terry began last season with the Brooklyn Nets but wound up being traded to the Kings right before the trade deadline. Because he was recovering from a knee injury, Terry never suited up for the Kings during his brief tenure there.

In 35 games this past season, Terry averaged a career-low 4.5 points and 1.6 assists per game.

He will likely be a reserve/backup guard to Patrick Beverley in Houston.

Gee is a five-year NBA veteran who will already be playing for his fourth team. This past season, he averaged 4.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.
