Former NBA champion reportedly coming back for incredible 19th season


Jason Terry has been playing in the NBA for a long time and it will get even longer according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.

He will be returning for his 19th season and is now one of a handful of players who was drafted in the 1990s --- he was drafted 10th overall in 1999 --- still playing in the NBA. The other one that comes to mind is Vince Carter who was drafted in 1998.

Terry won his lone NBA championship in 2011 with the Dallas Mavericks who beat the superstar Heatles after LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined the team. He was also named Sixth Man of the Year in 2009 and has played for six different teams now. He also played for the Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, the Bucks and Brooklyn Nets.

Terry has recorded over 18,500 points, over 1,500 steals, over 3,200 rebounds and over 5,300 assists in his career.
