Unrestricted free agent Jason Terry has reportedly agreed to terms with the Boston Celtics on a three-year contract, per Y! Sports. The deal apparently is for the the Celtics mid-level exception of $5 million, with the full value of the deal over $15 million.

Adding Terry is a step to keep the Celtics competitive for the immediate future, even if Boston is unable to retain Ray Allen. Terry’s scoring prowess and off the bench and experience appears to be a nice addition to the Celtics mix of veterans and youth. Terry was a key component to the Mavs championship run in 2011.

Terry has played the majority of his career for the Dallas Mavericks after being drafted by the Hawks 10th overall in 1999 and being traded to the Mavs in 2004. Terry has averaged 16.1 ppg and 4.7 apg (primarily off the bench) over his career, including 15.1 ppg in 2011-2012.
