Terry played 28 minutes per game for the Wildcats and was the heart and soul of the team. He provided energy, elite athleticism and above-average defense and passing.

Terry will be a good fit with the Bulls because of his versatility with all of the things he does well on the court.  Chicago is in need of stronger defensive players alongside their star scorers Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan, added Terry provides that. The underrated part of his game is his scoring; it continues to improve yearly.
