Default Terrence Ross

Starting a new thread because T.Ross discussion was taking over the Landry Fields thread.

NBA Comparison: Eddie Jones

Strengths: Solid ball-handler ...Very good court vision, finding teammates off P&R, or fast break ... Runs the lane well in transition with ability to spot up on the wing or finish a lob ... Lacks a conscience. Possessing irrational confidence at times, allowing him to play at a high level without perceived nerves or anxiety in high-pressure situations ... Long and active defender on-ball ... Excellent pass denial. ... Capable help defender, proven through passing lane deflections and weak-side shot blocks ... Great footwork in the face-up game, mostly showcasing pump-fake, one dribble pull up/step-back ... Good 3pt and mid range shooter ... Shot has good lift and form ... Exciting dunker in traffic or off lobs, with exceptional contortion abilities and body control in the air ... Length and ball instincts make him a great rebounder for a guard ...

Weaknesses: Despite his confidence, can seemingly get lost in the flow of the game at times ... Needs to further develop explosive first step, to use quickness to his advantage ... Must improve finishing at the rim on non-dunks ...Will need to develop counters to offensive wing moves ... Plenty of space to bulk up frame ... Continue to build on the beginnings of post-game he flashed ... Shot selection can lead him astray at times ... Can benefit from veteran support/mid-first round selection to help add seasoning ...

Notes: Leaves University of Washington after two seasons of exciting moments, dominating stretches, and occasional silent spurts ... All PAC-12 selection as a sophomore ... Got better as season went on, averaging 25 ppg in UW NIT Semifinal run ... High school teammate of Terrence Jones

There has been some debate about ball handling and it is interesting that the very first positive is "solid ball-handler".

Also thought I would post his Toronto workout because it was on the nbadraft page.

I think at the very least we are getting a future 3pt specialist. He has a beautiful stroke.
