Terry said in a radio interview in Dallas that he would love to play for the Mavericks, where he was a former NBA Sixth Man of the Year and part of the 2011 NBA Champions. “I won’t rule out returning back to Dallas,” Terry said. “It’s my home and my heart,” Terry said. “I bleed blue. I’m a Maverick.” Sacramento Bee

Based on his comments, it doesn’t matter what else the Kings do short of landing a superstar that would make them title contenders. Terry wants no part of Sacramento. “I wouldn’t say it’s rebuilding, but a building process,” Terry said. “DeMarcus Cousins is a huge talent. Attitude, a little shaky. Rudy Gay, not a proven winner in this league but a tremendous talent and a guy you can build around. “They’re in transition right now. For me, at this point in my career, I want championships.” Sacramento Bee

With the league’s new calendar in effect, Gay and the Kings are now free to discuss a new long-term contract extension. He’s not ruling out the possibility of inking a new deal before the season starts, but Gay also wants to assess the team’s direction and vision before making any long-term commitments. “I don’t want to create a big fuss like it was before, but I’m kind of taking my time,” the Kings starting small forward said. “I’m open to doing things, but I really want to see where the organization is going first.” Cowbell Kingdom

Coach Michael Malone understood last season would be a transition for Gay, but he expects the forward will be better this season. “I’m looking for him to be more of a leader next year. I am looking for him to be a better defender next year,” Malone said. “And we’ve already talked about and he said it on his own: ‘Coach, last year I held the ball too much. I’ve got to get off the ball. I’ve got to make a play quicker.’ The fact that he’s committed to us and he saw enough good things to opt into that final year I think speaks for the whole organization.” Sacramento Bee
