3. Jason Terry

Many people forget that before Jason Terry was a three-point gunner off the bench he was a very productive starting point guard for the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks selected Terry with tenth overall pick in the 1999 NBA Draft and he quickly proved he was one of the better players on the team. Terry played only five seasons for the Hawks (1999-2004), but he excelled during a relatively mediocre era of Hawks basketball.

In those five seasons Terry averaged 16.2 points, 5.5 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game on 42.7 percent shooting and 36.7 percent from outside. He led the team in scoring during the 2000-2001 season, scoring 19.7 points per game while knocking down 39.5 percent of his three-pointers.

He still ranks fifth all-time in assists per game with 5.5 and tenth in assist percentage at 28.3 percent. Terry was a stabilizing force during a time where few people cared about Hawks basketball and his contributions should not be forgotten.

Since leaving the Hawks Terry has turned into a very valuable role player. He primarily has served as a shooter off the bench, most notably for the Dallas Mavericks where he won the 2011 NBA Championship. Terry will enter his 17th season this year for the Houston Rockets.
