Virtus Bologna announced Reyshawn Terry

Virtus Bologna announced the signing of small forward Reyshawn Terry(2.03-SF/PF) who started the season in the LegaA2 in Italy playing for Triboldi. He was waived by the Dallas Mavericks after the pre-season games. Reyshawn Terry played for Aris Thessaloniki last season competing in both the Euroleague and the Greek A1 league.

He graduated from North Carolina and played for Aris Thessaloniki last season.He was acquired last summer in a draft night trade with Orlando. After being selected with the 44th pick, the forward was traded to Dallas for the rights to Milovan Rakovic (60th pick). He averaged 8.8 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 20.3 minutes in 19 Euroleague games.

As a player of Triboldi he averaged 16.5 points 8.2 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in 8 games. Reyshawn Terry is considered a small forward in the NBA but he can cover the power forward position in Europe. He will be replacing Jamie Arnold who hasn't pleased Virtus with his performance and work attitude.

If Terry had the mindset of a pro player he could have been playing in the NBA now.. he's got the body and the skills but lacks the brains and the motivation..

It's easy for those who can't play the game to criticize those who have talent and skills! I feel that all Dallas offered Reyshawn was empty promises. I'm glad that he's in Italy playing.
