HoopsHype Jason Terry rumors

October 20, 2013 Updates

Terry does not know how many minutes he will play Wednesday night. "He looks great," Nets coach Jason Kidd said. "When he's with the white team (in practice) it makes him that much more dangerous in a sense he gets the ball in the basket and understands how to play, sets screens, does all the little things. He's a competitive. He hates to lose so that's what he brings to the table and that's what he's been doing the last couple days. "No matter who it's against, just want him to get some time on the floor and see him with some different guys, coming off the bench we'll see how he looks but just to give him as many minutes without stretching him too long."

Garnett then delivered a stern postgame message to James by telling the Heat star to mind his own business after James commented about how Ray Allen was criticized for leaving Boston when discussing the trade that sent Garnett, Pierce and Jason Terry to Brooklyn earlier this week. "He's entitled to his own opinion," Terry said about James on Friday, "which we don't care about." ESPN.com

Jason Terry, who has been limited throughout training camp as he recovers from offseason left-knee surgery, participated in nearly all of Friday’s practice, and said that he hopes to go through a full practice when the Nets retake the practice floor Sunday. However, Terry will not participate in Saturday’s game against Detroit, and said that he is focused on getting back in the lineup for the Nets’ final two preseason games Oct. 23 in Boston and Oct. 25 in Miami.

Speaking of which, the story about how Rondo "didn't feel anything" upon learning about the trade that sent Garnett and Pierce to Brooklyn to chase another title without him? Not the whole truth, Rondo said -- at least not how he meant it. "You know me; I don't really say much," he told me in a conference room of the Four Seasons hotel. "I don't really speak out [on] exactly what happened. I kind of stay to myself. I talk to Kevin all the time. I talk to P. Obviously, it was different when the trade went down. I didn't expect it to happen because I just got off a plane. But it happens, and that's the business. But I'm not going to say, like, ‘Forget about them.' I was just talking about them in the locker room today -- telling some stories about how KG was, things Paul did," he said. "At the end of the day, I still talk to every one of those guys. I talk to Jet [Jason Terry]. I talk to P. I talked to Kevin [Monday]. We still check on each other. It's a brotherhood. It's something you can't erase. We won titles together. We've been through the fire together. It's something for life." CBSSports.com

Jason Terry considered himself a card-carrying member of that club until this last week or so, all thanks to the apparent yuckfest and chat sessions when the Nets take to the friendly skies, as they did Monday night. "It's a great vibe, it's a brotherhood," Terry said after practice at the PNY Center Monday before the Nets hopped on their chartered flight to Washington. "It's what you envision when you come into a new group of guys with the veteran leadership that we have. The best part of it is the plane rides. I can't wait to get on the plane ride right now. "Usually, during the season, you're like, 'Damn, another plane trip?' Now it's like, 'Yeah, let's get on the plane, man, let's fellowship.' And that's what it's been about this first week." Newsday

Brooklyn Nets guard Jason Terry doesn't think much of New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith's title guarantee, but he likes the Knicks' chances in streetball. Asked about Smith's guarantee that the Knicks would win the championship, Terry told Dime Magazine in an interview, "Maybe the Rucker Park Championship. I don't know, not the NBA championship. I don't see how they could guarantee that, at all. I'm not buying it, so ... I mean, it's a bitter rivalry, you know it's going to be intense, and however they feel over there in that locker room they are guaranteed and entitled to feel that way but we don't want to see that happen on our watch."

In a conversation with Bill Simmons, Danny Ainge talks about the trade that sent Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to the Nets, saying that a number of factors helped get the deal done, not the least of which was the "connection" Pierce has with Deron Williams and Jason Kidd: they share Jeff Schwartz as an agent. Ainge thinks the Schwartz connection was a big motivator for Pierce who in turn helped KG decide to give up his no-trade clause and join him in Brooklyn (although Ainge, from habit, referred to New Jersey as the Nets home.) "I also think that Paul has a connection with having the same agent as Deron Williams and Jason Kidd," said the Celtics GM. "I think probably there was some discussion going on there. I don't know that for sure, but my guess is that they had some conversation about it, that Paul was the one that talked KG into wanting to do the deal or letting go of his no-trade clause to make the deal happen and that took some convincing."

But first, Terry promised to be an improved player following a disappointing season with the Celtics. “I’m definitely going be flying higher than I was in Boston. This will be my first year healthy in the last couple of years,” he said. “I’m looking forward to getting back to that Sixth Man of the Year form that I had two years ago. And the only one that can do that for me is coach Jason Kidd because he understands what needs to be done for me to assume that role. Whether I was going to be in Boston or right here, I had to get healthy.” Boston Globe

With the Nets' flurry of fresh faces, coach Jason Kidd essentially has a jigsaw puzzle and will have to find ways to make everything fit together. Besides the trio of former Celtics, they're going to incorporate newcomers Andrei Kirilenko, Shaun Livingston, Alan Anderson and Mason Plumlee into the mix. "I think it will come together," Rivers said. "Listen, anything comes together when a lot of people want it to come together, and they have a lot of guys that want it to come together. Paul, Jason and Kevin want to win another title and everyone else wants to win their first. So if they all want to do that, then it all will work out." Newsday
