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.

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.
