Jason Terry shot down the Lakers in Game 4

Jason Terry traded to rival Houston

Beloved Dallas Maverick Jason “The Jet” Terry was acquired by the Houston Rockets on Aug. 31.

The former Boston Celtic and Brooklyn Net spent the second half of last season with the Sacramento Kings, but never played a single game due to injury.

Terry spent eight years with the Mavericks, helping them win the 2011 title, before signing a free-agent deal with the Celtics in 2012 and was traded to Brooklyn and Sacramento soon after.

Houston is sending a package of non-guaranteed contracts, which includes Alonzo Gee, that the Kings can ultimately waive and gain salary savings and roster space.

Sacramento will also send Houston two second-round picks, one from the Knicks.

The Kings have been trying to unload Terry’s $5.4 million expiring deal and Houston was continuing to search for another legitimate role player this offseason.

This continues the battle between Dallas and Houston after Chandler Parsons came to the Mavericks in July, a year after Houston beat out Dallas for free-agent center Dwight Howard.

The two teams will meet Oct. 7 to begin the preseason, while the first regular-season meeting will be in Houston on Nov. 22.

Houston will visit Dallas for the first time this upcoming season on Feb. 20.
