HoopsHype Terrence Ross rumors

February 4, 2013 Updates

And therein lies the reason he’s been getting after Ross. He doesn’t want his young teammate to make the same mistake he did and is going out of his way to make sure he doesn’t. “ I’m telling him, first of all, just because he thinks it’s any other dunk contest and you just go out and dunk, no,” DeRozan says stressing the negative at the end. “I try to let him know that millions of people are going to be watching you. You could change how people look at you from that day on. Everything is going to be different.” Toronto Sun

Having been passed over before, the snub (my word not his) of an invite to the NBA rookie/sophomore game barely registers for Raptors guard Terrence Ross. He may yet get to Houston as a dunk contest participant, but the Eastern Conference assistant coaches who did the voting for what is now called The Rising Stars Challenge did not deem him worthy of a spot on that team. Ross shrugged it off like it barely mattered. “Not surprised,” Ross said. “I mean, I didn’t even go the McDonald’s all-American or the Jordan Classic so not being in the all-star game is not really a big deal for me.” Toronto Sun

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
