The Dallas Mavericks drafted Tyrell Terry with the first pick in the second round in 2020. The 6’2 guard hit a late growth spurt and add some size during quarantine to improve his draft stock. Terry was one of the best 3-point shooters in the NCAA, but he needed time to develop to flourish in the NBA.

The Mavericks were ecstatic to land the 20-year-old guard. He drew comparisons to Seth Curry, and Terry gives Dallas a lights-out shooter to put around Luka Doncic as they attempt to take that next step.

It was a difficult rookie season for Tyrell Terry. He played a total of 56 NBA minutes and only saw action in 11 games. The 20-year-old was away from the team dealing with a personal issue of a significant stretch, and he just never worked his way into coach Rick Carlisle’s rotation. None of that is effecting his time in Dallas. Terry let fans know that he is loving the city.

Terry took to Twitter on July 14 to share a message about Dallas.


The 20-year-old has been working at the Mavericks hoop camp and having a blast. See a video of him taking on the campers here.


That is not the only reason Terry is loving Dallas. He talked about how the Mavs fans continued to support him, even when he was away from the team.

Tyrell Terry is happy to be with the Dallas Mavericks. The second-round pick played well in the G League bubble. He showed off improved playmaking, rebounding, and defense. The 20-year-old did not have his jumper locked in over the short sample, but he gave the organization plenty to get excited about moving forward.

The 20-year-old will be fighting for a place in new head coach Jason Kidd’s rotation next season. Tyrell Terry needs to continue working on his game. He offers plenty of potential, so stay tuned to see how he develops this offseason. Terry figures to be one of the Mavs key players during the summer league. Fans will not want to miss it.
