Jason Terry has found his next job in professional basketball.  

The Texas Legends announced they hired Terry to serve as the team's assistant general manager. The Legends are the Dallas Mavericks' G League team.

"We are thrilled to have Jason come on board," Legends president and general manager Malcolm Farmer said in the announcement. "His resume speaks for itself. He had a tenured NBA career for a reason, and to have him bring that skillset and work ethic to the table is invaluable for our team and staff."

Terry is familiar with the Mavericks organization from his time as a player.

He played for Dallas from the 2004-05 season through the 2011-12 campaign and helped the team defeat LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals.

"It's great to begin my front office career here," Terry said in the announcement. "The Dallas area has been home to me and my family for many years and the Mavericks franchise has always been family. To get to work with this organization in this capacity is exciting. I look forward to getting started."

Terry played 19 seasons in the NBA for the Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks (who drafted him with the No. 10 pick in 1999), Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Houston Rockets and Milwaukee Bucks
