Terrence Ross hasn't proven himself as an NBA player any more than Austin Daye. If Terrence Ross is disappointment Landry could take his minutes that leaves some minute at the 3.
Two years away...
I don't know about you. But i didn't know what to expect about AA going into last season. I didn't know anything about him. I didn't know his game. I didn't know he can shoot the ball like that. Like i said, he was an unknown going into last season.
Highlights from his sophmore year 10-11 his best year as pro. Going into his 3rd year thier was a coaching change and saw his minutes drop.
Coach Kuester speaking about Daye's Sophmore year and how he can improve for his third year. Too bad he was fired and replaced that summer. Could we of seen more from Daye? This league is all about oppurtunity. AA proved that this year.
Austin Daye's best game of the this past season
Highlights of this past season. All im saying is that Ross, Fields and Novak better come prepared for training camp. Out of all of Massai's low risk high reward signing his the one im more excited about.
YES, i know the Raptor withdraw has gotten the best of me -_-
I was going to start a new thread about Masai drafting strategy, but maybe it's not worth it so I will just mention my thoughts here.
There seems to be a pretty consistent theme in what he has done so far (I mean aside from finding low cost players). I suggest that almost everyone he has picked up so far (maybe outside of Hansbrough) has had a particular reason for not performing better. It's almost like he has instructed his scouting staff "go find role players who have reasons for not performing better in their roles. Coaches whose systems don't suit the player, players in situations where they aren't going to get noticed, players who had injury issues that held them back or players that have a flaw in their games that no one has bothered to fix."
It's been mentioned many times that these guys are low risk, but all of them also have the potential to do quite well in certain circumstances. And any of them might become worthwhile trade chips down the road. I can see some of these guys going in situational trades to teams who have suffered injuries and need a role specialist at the 12th spot on the bench come trade deadline, as the playoffs start looming.
Might be my imagination, but Masai would seem to be operating on multiple levels.

Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
At this point in time Daye is a better player than Ross.
