Terry, who retired from the NBA in 2018, recently said in a radio interview with CBS Sports’ Zach Gelb that he received a mysteriously urgent, late-night text message from Cuban, the Mavericks’ billionaire owner, in the days after that 2006 NBA Finals loss. “I got a random text in the middle of the night,” Terry says in the interview. “My wife’s looking at my phone, like, ‘Excuse me, it’s 2 a.m., who’s texting?’ And it said, ‘Meet at the jet.’ And I said, ‘It’s Mark [Cuban].’ Terry’s wife told him he’d better hurry up and meet with Cuban, because the situation “must be urgent” for him to reach out in the middle of the night. When Terry met Cuban at the billionaire’s private jet, he saw that future Hall-of-Famer Nowitzki was already on the plane with some of his friends.
New Arizona Wildcats assistant Jason Terry is entering his first season as a college basketball coach, but it turns out he actually tried entering the industry in 2016. In March of that year, the Stanford Cardinal hired Jerod Haase away from UAB and Terry, 39 at the time, was willing to walk away from his NBA career to be the Blazers’ new head coach. He interviewed for the position (and well, according to him) but was turned down in favor of Haase’s top assistant Robert Ehsan. Terry returned to the NBA for two more seasons, both with the Milwaukee Bucks, more determined than ever to coach one day.
On Thursday, Arizona made the hiring of Jason Terry official. Sean Miller sat down with Brian Jeffries for a quick interview and started by describing what makes Terry so qualified to be a coach. “Jason Terry is somebody that I have gotten to know, like a lot of people here at the U of A, during my 11 years,” Miller said. “At first, I was just a huge fan of his. Anybody that is 6-foot-2, 180 pounds that can play in the NBA for 18 seasons. Right now he is seventh all time in the NBA in three-pointers made, he is a NBA world champion, a NBA Sixth Man of the Year.”
For Miller, the most impressive aspect of Terry may be just how passionate he is about the game of basketball. “I love his passion for the game,” Miller said. “When you think of Jason Terry, don’t you think of someone that loves the game of basketball? When you combine everything I have talked about, he has been there and done it 1,000 times over. Yet I know he would love to be in the gym with our players. Imagine him working out with our guards,”
