Bucks news: Jason Terry says being coached by Jason Kidd is a ‘dream come true’
Having played together for five seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, Jason Terry knows Jason Kidd more than most current and former players in the league. Last year, they found themselves on the same team again, but this time not as co-players anymore.
With Kidd being the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, his former teammate became his player. Although that doesn’t happen often in the NBA, the two did not have difficulty adjusting to their roles. Terry even said recently that he had always wanted to be under the tutelage of the former 10-time All-Star.

Now entering his 19th season in the league, Terry has been brought back by the Bucks to serve as their veteran locker room leader, and also mentor their young core of players. He has won a championship with Kidd back in 2011, and also has a lot of playoff experience which he can share to his teammates.
Despite being 39 years old last season, Terry proved that he can still be effective on the court. He came off the bench and provided the Bucks with quality minutes, and letting his head coach know that he can be relied upon on any given night. If he can manage to also perform the same way this year, his team may be geared for a deeper run in the postseason, which could be the last in his career.
