Bucks: Veterans Jason Terry, Steve Novak headed to Milwaukee, reports say

August 20, 2016

With the youngest roster in the league, the Milwaukee Bucks are hoping the addition of two veterans can help with their problems shooting from long distance.

Free agents Jason Terry 38, and Steve Novak, 33, are expected to be signed as soon as Monday, league sources said Friday.

Terry is a former NBA Sixth Man Award winner (2009) who won an NBA championship with the Dallas Mavericks in the 2010-11 season alongside Bucks coach Jason Kidd, then the Mavericks’ starting point guard.

Selected No. 10 overall in the 1999 draft, Terry has played for five teams in his 17 seasons — Atlanta, Dallas, Boston, Brooklyn and Houston — and ranks third all time in the NBA in 3-pointers made, behind only Ray Allen and Reggie Miller.

The Bucks signed Novak in February after he was traded from Oklahoma City to Denver and released by the Nuggets. The former Marquette and Brown Deer High School standout played in just three games with Milwaukee and a total of 19 minutes before suffering a season-ending knee injury.
