Terrence Ross NBA Draft Profile

Washinton Terrence Ross NBA Draft Profile

Terrence Ross, Sophomore, Small Forward, Washington



As a freshman at Washington Terrence Ross was just a roleplayer. He averaged 17.4 minutes per contest and scored just 8.0 points per game. He did start to show off his nice jump shot and great athleticism, but it would be another year before Ross made a big impact in Seattle. During the 2011-2012 campaign Ross did just that. He started every game and led the team in scoring with 16.4 points per game and second in rebounds, steals and blocks.

At 6-7 and 197 pounds, Ross could easily beat the opposition in the Pac-12. He has a smooth jump shot with range well beyond the NBA three-point line. He could also easily attack the basket and finish around the rim. Ross is a great athlete, but it will not be as simple at the next level. With equally good athletes defending him at the next level, Ross needs to get stronger or get more aggressive.


Final Projection:

With a good junior year, Ross could have cemented a spot in the top ten of the 2013 NBA Draft. Another year to work on his strength and continue to improve other facets of his game would not have been a bad thing either. However, Ross will not likely fall out of the first round in the 2012 NBA Draft. He has more than enough potential to make teams willing to take a chance on him in the middle of the first round.
