DALLAS — In an emphatic statement before Friday’s game against Boston, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle let it be known what type of prestigious hardware Celtics guard Jason Terry will be collecting once his career is over.“Jet’s going to be in the Mavericks Hall of Fame,” Carlisle said. “He may not make it to Springfield, [the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame in Massachusetts), but he’s going to be one of those guys who is going to be a little like Derek Harper.“He’s going to be one of the best players ever to not be an All-Star and maybe not ultimately make Springfield. But his number is going to be hung up in the rafters here, and that’s a big deal. Trust me on that one.”Terry played for the Mavs from 2004 until he and the Mavs couldn’t agree on a new contract last summer when he became a free agent. The fiery guard had helped the Mavs reach the NBA Finals in 2006, and win the NBA title in 2011 before signing a three-year, $15.675 million contract with the Celtics this past summer.“I love Jet,” Mavs owner Mark Cuban said. “I want him to be part of the Mavericks’ organization when he’s done.“Jet’s going to be a Maverick for life.”Terry all but said he bleeds Mavericks blue, adding that he’s kept tabs on his former team’s struggles.“It’s tough, because I’m still a Mavs fan at heart,” Terry said. “Again, when you break up the team, that’s what happens.”Carlisle said Terry is one of the all-time top clutch players he’s ever played with or coached.“He’s one of those rare guys that can have a lot of things going on around him,” Carlisle said, “and then he can just lock in and go score 12 points in the fourth quarter and hit the game-winning shot.” Beaubois shelved?As far as Rick Carlisle is concerned, guard Rodrigue Beaubois is probably done for the season.Beaubois had surgery on his left hand this past Wednesday — three days after he was injured during Sunday’s loss to Oklahoma City.“I don’t know that he’s out for the year,” Carlisle said. “The most likely scenario is that he probably is.“He had surgery where there were three screws inserted. He’s healed up from things in the past, but I just don’t know. I think most likely he’s probably done for the year, but I’m not for certain.”Beaubois becomes a free agent on July 1, but Mark Cuban said his injury doesn’t necessarily cast a dark cloud on his possible future with the Mavs.Cuban said, “It’s not like the last 16 games of the season is going to change our evaluation.”Beaubois has been injured at some point during all four seasons of his NBA career.“That’s crazy, it’s just unfortunate,” Cuban said. “You never want to see that happen to anybody. And Roddy is just a good kid, so I know it’s frustrating to him to.”In 45 games this season, Beaubois averaged four points and 1.9 assists in 12.2 minutes per contest and shot 36.9 percent from the field.
