Jason Terry is done for the season. The Sacramento Bee's Jason Jones tweeted that Kings coach Michael Malone announced that Terry, traded by the Nets on Thursday, never fully recovered from his off-season knee injury.

Malone said a healthy Jason Terry could help the Kings next season and Terry hasn't felt healthy all season after offseason surgery.— Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) February 22, 2014
After his off-season knee surgery, Terry missed part of training camp. Then after playing 11 games, he had to shut it down for the next 15. He admitted he had come back too soon from surgery and never got it going, shooting 25.8 percent overall in February.
Larry Coon thinks the Kings are likely to dump Terry this summer.
Probably waive/stretch in the offseason. RT @bkny248 what do you think happens with Jason Terry?— Larry Coon (@LarryCoon) February 22, 2014
It's the second time in a month that a Nets player didn't play after being traded. Tyshawn Taylor was sent to the Pelicans for the draft rights to Edin Bavcic. Shortly afterwards, New Orleans released him. After a stint in the D-League, Taylor signed Friday with a team in the Puerto Rican league.
