Terry was moved to the Kings with forward Reggie Evans in exchange for swingman Marcus Thornton. With a logjam at the wing spot and with Terry's aching left knee, the former Mavericks guard has decided to rehab his knee in preparation for the 2014-2015 NBA season in Dallas rather than try to earn minutes for coach Mike Malone.
It is just as well. Sacramento has rookie guards Ben McClemore and Ray McCallum to try and develop as they wallow in the depths of the Western Conference. Terry has posted career-lows of 4.5 points on 36.2 percent shooting while averaging 16.3 minutes per game.
Sam Hinkie, Danny Granger to discuss buyout from Sixers
Granger was traded with a second-round pick on Feb. 20 to Philadelphia for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. The Sixers are one of the worst teams in the NBA with a record of 15-41 and Granger would like to be bought out in order to land with a contender this season.
But Granger clearly does not want to be in Philly and is expected to push for his release to try to work his way to Miami, OKC, SA, etc.— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 21, 2014
However, if the former All-Star leaves the Sixers he would lose his bird rights, a major factor in future contract considerations. Philadelphia could also hang on to him to use as sign-and-trade bait come this summer. General Manager Sam Hinkie and Granger are set to meet to discuss their options.
Charlie Villanueva could get buyout from Detroit
NBA Trade Deadline
NBA Trade Deadline
Villanueva has not been a part of the Pistons' regular rotation, which features big men Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond and Josh Smith. He is averaging a career-low 8.9 minutes per game, finding no space for action in the jam-packed frontcourt rotation. Villanueva is currently listed as the third power forward behind third-year man Jonas Jerebko.
The former Raptors and Bucks forward has a hefty salary of $8.6 million left on the last year of his contract this season. If bought out, Villanueva would likely sign where he would get the best opportunity for playing time.
