Ex-Mavericks champion accused of not paying for expensive Rolex watch

Jason Terry is being sued for something really unique some five years after his NBA career ended.

According to court records obtained by Priscilla DeGregory of the New York Post, ex-NBA player Terry is being accused of not paying for a $25,000 diamond-encrusted Rolex watch. 

In order to attend Drai's Nightclub in Las Vegas, Nevada while attending the NBA Summer League, Terry allegedly stole a custom-made 23.5-carat stainless steel timepiece from famous jeweler Eric Mavachev.

According to Mavachev, Terry later expressed interest in purchasing the watch, and Mavachev obliged. 

The complaint claims that Terry was supposed to pay him back, but he never did, and he also ignored Mavachev's repeated attempts to get in touch with him.

On Monday, Mavachev filed a case in Manhattan Supreme Court demanding the $25,000 he claims he is owed through a breach of contract. 

Here you may find DeGregory's whole analysis of the lawsuit.

Terry, at 45, spent 19 of them (from 1999 to 2018) as an NBA player.

In 2009, he was named NBA's Sixth Man of the Year, and in 2011, he and the Dallas Mavericks won the NBA title.
