Terrence Ross to Raptors: Scouting Report, Video Highlights and Analysis
Newest Toronto Raptor Terrence Ross is one of the top shooting guards in the 2012 NBA draft class, and he improved dramatically in his sophomore season.
The Portland native averaged 16.4 points and 6.4 rebounds with the Washington Huskies, shooting 45 percent from the field and 37 percent from downtown.
What Ross Brings to the Team
At 6'6", 190 pounds, Ross is an excellent shooter and a good athlete. His quickness, combined with his leaping ability, make him a dangerous slasher to the hoop. He uses his length well, allowing him to block shots and be disruptive defensively.
Ross will have to improve his ball-handling and shot selection, however. He had bouts of inconsistency while at Washington.

Ross has the athletic ability scouts are looking for in a two guard and he's proved to be a solid shooter. He can be turnover prone and can sometimes have questionable shot selection, but overall he's one of the best guard prospects in this draft. He's a potential late-lottery- to mid-first-round pick.
One thing appears clear: Ross has the ability to be a dynamic threat in the NBA, but he is also a bit raw and needs to be groomed.
NBADraft.net notes, "Can benefit from veteran support/mid-first round selection to help add seasoning."
Will Terrence Ross be a star in the NBA?
If Ross can play more within the game and pick his sweet shooting spots, he has the ability to be a game-changer and a tough guard in the NBA.
This pick is a bit of a surprise, as Terrence Ross was not expected to go this high in the draft. At 6’7”, Ross can shoot the rock and will be able to help one of the worst scoring offenses in the league. Ross is also able to get to the basket and will be a nice compliment to DeMar DeRozan.
