Deal close: Jason Terry going to Rockets in swap with Kings

Guard Jason Terry is headed back to Texas, where he had his best success as a member of the Dallas Mavericks. Word Sunday had him en route to the Houston Rockets.

Terry, 36, reportedly will be dealt from the Sacramento Kings in a cap-room trade, according to CBS Sports.

Headed to Sacramento: Alonzo Gee and picks. In addition to Terry, the Rockets will get two second-round picks, according to Yahoo! Sports.

After eight seasons with the Mavericks, Terry joined the Boston Celtics as a free agent in 2012. He was the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year in 2009 and 2011, a sign of his expected role with the Rockets.

The deal promises to continue stirring the fire between t

he two Lone Star State rivals. Terry also could find success in the Rockets' up-tempo offense while helping fill a need for a guard with playoff experience.

Gee might not last long in Sacramento, where observers believe the Kings will waive him to free up cap space.

The Rockets will also receive two second-round draft picks and send guard/forward Alonzo Gee to the Kings, along with at least one other non-guaranteed contract.

The 36-year-old Terry started last season with Brooklyn and averaged only 4.5 points in 35 games. He was traded to Sacramento at the trade deadline and didn't play the rest of the season as he recovered from a left knee injury. Terry played in Boston in 2012-13 after eight seasons in Dallas, where he was named the league's Sixth Man of the Year in 2009 and 2011.
