HoopsHype Terrence Ross rumors

June 20, 2012 Updates

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.

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.
