Terrence Ross

After signing Corey Joseph and Demarre Carrol this offseason, the Raptors gave Ross a 3 yr 31 mil extension. This season, they are bringing him off the bench for somewhere around 20 minutes, averaginf 5pts and shooting 31% from the field.

Masai Ujiri said in an interview the other day “Right or wrong, [the Ross deal] could be a bad contract, we're not going to get every single one right, but all I'm saying is these are sometimes the risks we have to take which doesnt exactly sound like the most supporting statement from your GM.

I know its still early in the season and im not saying they should jump ship yet, but would they be interesting in moving him? I still think he's a guy with a good amount of upside, and in a faster-pace offense I think he could be more effective.

Who would be interested in him on the market? I think thats a move that Philly would look to make given their current situation. Any other thoughts?

Philly

Philly has nothing to trade except picks, and unless Toronto is willing to accept 2nd round picks for him, I dont see Hinkie giving up first rounders.

a second rder from Philly is

a second rder from Philly is like a late first anyway. Ross may have lost confidence. I don't know. But a change in scenery might help.. I wouldn't mind him in Boston. Maybe under Brad Stevens, Ross would regain some ability. Not sure I would want to add his salary though.

Think

I think he would thrive in Philly in the fast paced offense and his shooting ability something we lack. Also his shooting ability would help our bigs out slot because he would stretch the floor. He also fits the mold of the type of player thru like big and athletic. Like the poster said above me though I don't see heinke giving up much for him and I'm not sure he would be willing to pay 10 mil a year for him.

Philly

Would Philly give up Stauskas and their 2nd rounder for Ross? I like the potential of Ross, but he hasn't made anything of it in the last couple years and is behind DeRozan and Carroll and comes off the bench after Joseph. Stauskas would give the Raps a shooter off the bench as well as another Canadian. And a Philly 2nd rounder is almost like a 1st round pick, just without the guaranteed money!

If the Raptors accept that

If the Raptors accept that trade Philly would accept it. But no way they accept that trade,

maybe

Ross will start costing a lot more than Stauskas starting next year. Ross has sort of worn out his welcome in Toronto. He could be a great 3 and D guy with slashing/running the floor ability but he just doesn't have that intensity and drive to do so. Sometimes he turns it on, but it's a rare occurrence. His confidence is quite shot, and being delegated to a bench role isn't going to help that.

Stauskas can provide the shooting that Ross was supposed to. JJohnson and Joseph can come in to defend a good wing player which Ross was supposed to do. It's a lateral move in my mind, but it saves you money.

That 50+ point game from Ross

That 50+ point game from Ross was one of the biggest abberrations in NBA history. He has a decent stroke, but he's not consistent enough to hang his hat on it. Ross has the athelticism to be a Trevor Ariza type, but without the reliable shot he's a fringe player.

Sacramento would be a good fit. I don't know if McLemore is the answer for the Kings

Ross needs the right culture

Ross needs the right culture first if he wants to be an impactful player in the NBA. Kings don't have that culture.

How is that a good fit? The

How is that a good fit? The only benefit for either possibly would be a change of scenery. They're actually pretty damn similar. Both athletic SGs with zero ball skills and low IQs, who are supposed to be 3&D SGs but are inconsistent shooters that actually aren't that good defensively.

Holy crap did the Raps jump the gun on that extension.

Memphis, maybe he can compliment Gasol and Conley well

I've watched a lot of Raptor

I've watched a lot of Raptor games and Ross has been the most disappointing player on that team for at least the past 2 years.

The only reason I think he was extended was to provide some type of "insurance" if Derozan doesn't get resigned after this season.

Ross needs an offensive system which doesn't rely on him to have any creativity with the ball. He has not shown the ability to create forhinself or his teammates on a consistent basis.

I think Philly is an outlier in this case since if he was on that team he would be getting 30 plus mpg and at least 10 FG attempts. A fully focused Ross can play a Danny Green type role for playoff teams as he's shown he can be a good defender while hitting the 3 at a good clip.

Ross is trash, no basketball

Ross is trash, no basketball iq and his confidence is shot as he can neither create for himself because of his lack of ability to handle the ball. His basketball iq hurts him the most on the defensive end, he is athletic but continues to find himself having a hard time staying in front of anyone. On offence he stalls the offence and currently stands as no kind of threat. I can see Toronto buying this contract out in a years time.
