Shawn Marion happy to see Jason Terry reunite with Jason Kidd on Bucks
With his recent signing with the Milwaukee Bucks, veteran shooting guard Jason Terry will be reunited with a former teammate, but this time as his coach, in Jason Kidd. If there’s someone who’s happy about this move and knows it will be a good partnership, it’s Shawn Marion.
The three were teammates from 2009-2012 and won a championship together in 2011 with the Dallas Mavericks. Marion recently spoke to the Star-Telegram’s Dwain Price, expressing his delight with knowing the two will be working again with each other:
“That’s awesome, I love it, They need a great veteran up there.”
Terry will be turning 39 next month and is expected to play a minor role off the bench. He brings the Bucks leadership, which is important given they have a very young team with 10 players under 25-years-old. He is expected to be the mentor and locker room leader the team badly needs.
Marion echoes this and shared what he knows The Jet can bring to the table:
“I just talked to him the other night. I’m happy he’s going to join J-Kidd and help him out, he’s a great veteran that can help do some things that can help control the young guys, and he’s going to give them some veteran leadership.”
With the addition of a proven veteran and former NBA champion to their fold, the chances of making a run in the postseason seem even more possible now.
