JET won’t fly in Sacramento.

Former Brooklyn Nets forward Jason Terry will not suit up for the Sacramento Kings this season after getting traded there by the Brooklyn Nets, according to various reports.

Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee cited a radio interview by Kings coach Michael Malone, in which Malone says Terry’s left knee hasn’t felt the same since undergoing offseason surgery in June:

During the team’s training camp in October, Terry called the left knee surgery “a little cleanout.” “Just some wear and tear,” Terry said. “Normal body. What a 35-year-old walking around normally would have on his knees. So for me, I needed it, probably should’ve had it two years ago.”

Terry only played sparingly for Brooklyn, struggling with consistency and playing in just 35 of a possible 51 games.
