Jason Terry says he could be an asset to the Heat
Earlier this week it was reported that Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash said he wouldn't mind joining the Heat next season if the Suns can't make him a suitable offer. Add Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry to the ever growing list of veterans trying to latch on with the Heat.
"Miami is definitely a title contender. For sure," Terry told FOX Sports Florida before Dallas' 106-85 loss at AmericanAirlines Arena about his interest. "(Team president) Pat Riley is a great guy and what he's done with the organization is tremendous.
"No question, they need a veteran shooter, a guy who can score besides LeBron (James) and (Dwyane Wade), and they know they can count on. I'm a guy that's been in this league 13 years, (averaging) 15 points a night, easy. Off the bench or the starting lineup, it doesn't matter. So I think I'd be an asset to them."
Terry's words ring true. He could definitely be a help off the bench and he's a winning player. He doesn't care how much he plays, if he starts or comes off the bench, or how many shots he gets. He'd be perfect for the second unit.
My question is how many more veterans who want a crack at a ring are willing to gravy train their way to a championship. Because that's what it's amounting to right now.
