Meet Dallas Mavericks summer league roster: Tyrell Terry- G

Terry headlines the Mavs summer league roster in 2021. He was the 31st overall selection in the 2020 NBA Draft. The 20-year-old played just 56 minutes with the Mavericks last season, but he was away from the team for a significant stretch dealing with a personal issue.

Tyrell Terry was a sharpshooter during his lone season at Stanford. The 6’2 guard averaged 14.6 points and shot 40.8 percent from 3-point range as he was named to the Pac-12 All-Freshman team. Terry was drawing Seth Curry comparisons as he headed into the draft.

The 20-year-old played in the G League bubble last season. He averaged 14.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.1 steals in 29.4 minutes per game. Terry showcased his improved playmaking and ball-handling. The Mavericks will be hoping to see another step forward in those areas in Las Vegas.

Dallas’ summer league squad lacks playmakers, so Terry will be asked to step up. Fans should be watching closely to see how the young Maverick performs. He is excited about the opportunity to compete.

Tyrell Terry signed a four-year deal with Dallas after he was drafted. The Mavericks have a team option for the 2023-2024 season. The 6’2 guard will be on the roster, but figures to play an end-of-the-bench role. Terry must shine in Vegas if he wants to move up the team’s depth chart heading into the 2021-2022 season.
