Former NBA player and current Utah Jazz assistant coach Jason Terry is being sued for allegedly not paying for a rented Rolex he wanted to buy outright.
The Rolex was a 23.5-carat stainless steel customized timepiece.
Mavachev’s attorney, Mark Shirian, told The New York Post that Terry wanted to wear the flashy watch while at the venue. Afterward, instead of returning the timepiece, he decided to purchase it, according to the suit.
In the suit, Mavachev claimed that Terry then “ghosted” him after telling “The Jet” that he never received the funds.
“Despite earning over one hundred million dollars in the NBA, Mr. Terry has failed to fulfill his financial obligations and has not made the necessary payments for the valuable timepiece,” Shirian said. “We are prepared to use all available legal avenues to recover the outstanding payment for the watch.”
The New York Post reported that Terry didn’t immediately return requests for comment.
