Default CNN SI - Terrence Ross in summer league

http://nba-point-forward.si.com/2012...sct=nba_t12_a0

Three key points i guess...

1) Ross to push Derozan to show up or move on

2) Casey has been in regular touch with Jonas Valanciunas, the Lithuanian center Toronto selected with the No. 5 pick in the 2011 draft. Casey last saw Valanciunas a few weeks ago in Houston, where the Lithuanian national team was training in advance of an Olympic qualifying tournament.

Valanciunas spent last season playing professionally in Lithuania, but hes coming to Toronto this season, and Casey says he expects Valanciunas to seize a major rotation role immediately. Hes been playing against grown men, Casey said, and they eat their young over there.



3) Casey thrilled about Lowry - probably had a lot of imput into decision.

Lowry being the anti Jose PG we already know who the starter is.

I think Derozan has a higher ceiling than Ross but he'll never reach it. He has too many huge holes in his game. Ross' shooting gives him a chance to be a serviceable starter at some point but, IMO, nothing more than that.

Let's just say I'm not excited about either guy.
