BC-BKN--Heat-Terry

February 20, 2019
Emanuel Terry got a surprise after the final Team USA training-camp practice before their FIBA World Cup qualifying games this weekend. He’s not playing for Team USA after all. He’s in the NBA instead. Terry got signed to a 10-day contract by the Miami Heat, a move that caught him completely off-guard.

MIAMI (AP) — Emanuel Terry’s plans to play for his country this weekend have been thwarted, for a very good reason.

He’s back in the NBA instead.

Terry was signed to a 10-day contract Wednesday by the Miami Heat, who made the move after he spent a few days with USA Basketball in its training camp at the University of Miami this week. So instead of playing Panama on Friday and Argentina on Monday in the last games of qualifying for the FIBA World Cup, Terry will be with the Sioux Falls Skyforce for a G League game in Long Island on Thursday and then with the Heat this weekend.

Terry got told of the move just before Team USA broke camp in Miami. He says he’s “had dreams about this.”

Terry averaged 4.5 points in two games with Phoenix earlier this season.
