A league source confirmed yesterday that Duke’s Austin Rivers, taken by New Orleans with the 10th pick, was indeed targeted by the Celtics during their failed attempt to move up the board Thursday night. But Doc Rivers’ son wasn’t alone. The Celtics had targeted “four or five guys” who went in the lottery, including North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes, who was taken by Golden State at No. 7. The Celtics had worked out Barnes and Washington’s Terrence Ross, the eighth pick of the draft by Toronto, during the Eastern Conference finals in Miami. Boston Herald

Charles F. Gardner: Terrence Ross is headliner of Bucks workout today - one of top shooting guard prospects in draft. Also Ryan Allen of UWM works out again. Twitter

However, Lamb went into Phoenix this weekend and toughed out a workout on the bad ankle. A source in Phoenix told me the Suns were impressed with his toughness and willingness to fight through the workout. His performance there could keep him in the lottery. If Lamb is gone, Terrence Ross, Dion Waiters and Austin Rivers are all possibilities here. So is Arnett Moultrie. ESPN.com

Dion Waiters is a strong possibility to become the third guard behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson as Golden State hopes Curry ditches the ankle injuries once and for all after they ruined his 2011-12. Oakland product Damian Lillard would be considered as well, but may not get there with the Blazers at No. 6 and needing a point guard. Terrence Ross is also in the mix, the Bay Area News Group reports. NBA.com

Washington wing Terrence Ross was supposed to work out for the Warriors on Sunday, and when he didn't, it started speculation about a draft promise. He last worked out for Portland, which selects No. 6 -- a spot ahead of the Warriors. Turns out, Ross simply has a sprained ankle and couldn't practice against St. John's Moe Harkless on Sunday.

Ryan Blake, the senior director of NBA scouting operations, said five players whom the Mavs could consider at No. 17 include Washington shooting guard Terrence Ross, Mississippi State power forward Arnett Moultrie, St. John's small forward Moe Harkless, Illinois center Meyers Leonard and North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall. Blake, however, believes Jones will be long gone before the Mavs make their first selection. Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Here is a couple name to throw into the mix for the No. 7 pick: Syracuse SG Dion Waiters and Washington SG/SF Terrence Ross. According to sources, Waiters is high on the Warriors’ draft board. The 6-foot-4, 221-pound guard has impressed several teams and appears to be one of the hot names. He impresses the Warriors because of his ability to score, create offense and also play point guard. He’s got good size for a point guard. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said Waiters’ game reminds him of Dwayne Wade. Contra Costa Times

The Trail Blazers’ draft workout Wednesday was star-studded, with five of the six players projected as first-round picks. The workout probably meant the most to Terrence Ross, a Portland native who entered the draft after two years at the University of Washington. “It’s surreal, you know?” Ross said. “I can’t believe it. It’s hard to take in even now.” Oregonian

“The biggest thing about it is not having to stay in the hotel,” Ross said. “I can just stay at home. That was a big part. All my family seeing me before I get to work out for the Blazers, that’s like a dream.” Oregonian

There are also six players who are all projected to be picked in the area where the Bucks are drafting that probably won’t travel to Milwaukee before the draft. They are Duke combo guard Austin Rivers, Washington shooting guard Terrence Ross, Syracuse combo guard Dion Waiters, Connecticut shooting guard Jeremy Lamb, Weber State point guard Damion Lillard and Ohio State power forward Jared Sullinger.

Terrence Ross could be an option. Ross averaged 16.4 points and shot 37.1 percent from 3-point range while earning first-team All-Pac-12 honors as a sophomore at the University of Washington. He averaged 25 points in the Pac-12 champion Huskies’ four-game run to the NIT semifinals. “I think I can provide some shooting ability (by making) some 3s, midrange (jumpers), pull-ups and score down low,” Ross said. “I think that’s something they need help with. I think I’d be a perfect fit.” phillyburbs.com
