Milwaukee Bucks logo 11The Milwaukee Bucks are reportedly close to signing veterans Jason Terry and Steve Novak for the upcoming season.

ESPN.com reported Thursday that the Bucks were in advanced talks with Terry.

The 38-year-old Terry won the NBA sixth man award with Dallas in 2009 and spent the last two seasons with the Houston Rockets.  Bucks coach Jason Kidd played with Terry on the Dallas Mavericks NBA championship team in 2011.

The Bucks had originally signed Novak back in February after he was released by the Denver Nuggets.  He played in just three games with the Bucks before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

Terry ranks third all-time among NBA players in three-pointers made with 2,169, behind only Ray Allen and Reggie Miller.

The Bucks can use some help there.  Last season, they attempted and made the fewest three-pointers in the NBA.

Earlier this summer, the Bucks signed free agent Mirza Teletovic, who set an NBA record for three-pointers made in a reserve role while playing with the Phoenix Suns last season.

Novak led the NBA in three-point shooting percentage (47.2) during the 2011-’12 season when he was with the New York Knicks.
