Kings Trade Jason Terry To Rockets

Last season Jason Terry was traded to the Sacramento Kings at the trade deadline, he didn’t play a game with the Kings as he was recovering from a left knee injury. Terry will be making his comeback this season and it will be with the Houston Rockets.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Kings have traded the former Sixth Man of The Year to the Rockets in exchange for Alonzo Gee and two second-round draft picks.

Terry had been a longtime rival of the Rockets with the Dallas Mavericks, and a move to Houston promises to escalate what has become an increasingly fierce rivalry between the teams this summer.

Terry, 36, spent eight years with the Mavericks before signing a 2012 free-agent deal with theBoston Celtics and moving onto Brooklyn and Sacramento in trades in 2013 and ’14, respectively. Terry was the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year 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.
