    Star-Telegram - Jason Terry returned from his vacation in the Bahamas to sign a six-year $50 million contract with the Mavericks.

    Terry had agreed upon the contract on July 1st.

    “For me, it’s a no-brainer,†Terry said. “I’m at the prime of my career, so getting a long-term deal now was the No. 1 priority.â€

    “It means a lot to me — the commitment that the Mavs have shown to me and the support they’ve shown me all year long,†said Terry, who spent five seasons with the Atlanta Hawks . “For me, personally (coming to the Mavs) I knew it was an opportunity to play on a winning team and to finally get to the playoffs where I could showcase my skill level.

    “But I also knew this was a chance for me to become a better player all-around. This is truly a blessing

    It's a big raise for Jason Terry. Making 50 million dollars over 6 years is a lot for him. But he played very good and helped Dallas to reach the NBA finals so a efty paycheck was definitly waiting for him. A lot teams wanted him but he probably knew that Dallas was going to give the contract he wanted.
