HoopsHype Terrence Ross rumors
Every year, agents seem to get in the way of what a team wants to do with its workouts and this year is no different. Damian Lillard was ready and even willing to work out against Kendall Marshall on Tuesday, but on the advice of his agent, he didn’t. Instead, he conducted his workout solo about an hour or so after Marshall and Washington’s Terrence Ross and Pickering native Devoe Joseph joined three others in a group workout which would have been ever so helpful to the Raptors had it included Lillard.

The Nuggets worked out draft prospects today and when Terrence Ross was asked what player he's like, Ross replied: "I'd say similar to a J.R. Smith." Of course, Ross meant Smith's athleticism and shooting — not Smith's combustible personality on and off the court — but it was amusing, especially inside Pepsi Center, to hear someone describe themselves in a positive way by using Smith as an example.

Terrence Ross will enter the NBA draft, the school announced Sunday. The sophomore guard plans to hire an agent, meaning he cannot return to the Huskies. "I discussed the pros and the cons with my family and I just think this is a great step for me and it's time for me to take my game to the next level," Ross said in a statement released by the school. "On the court, off the court, with school and in life...it's just been a real blessing to consider myself a Husky and get to where I am right now." Seattle Times
Sophomore G Terrence Ross has 55 points on 52.8-percent shooting in the Huskies' two NIT games, including a career-high 32 points in Friday's win over Northwestern. But Ross refused to say if Tuesday's quarterfinal game would be his last as a Husky before he jumps to the NBA. CBSSports.com
