Curry Thompson and Igoudala
Myself (March 2014):
The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.
I was going based on the merits of all three- hence why I wasn't thinking OKC or Miami. GSW though- I'd go to war with our guys instead of theirs. My reasoning- our trio is better on D, and Iggy is 30 and has only played over 70 games once in the last 4 seasons. If Iggy loses a step due to injury/age, Curry is better than KL but not by that much because he can't play D, Ross can be better if he comes out with improved dribbling and aggression than Thompson, and Iggy a step slower isn't as good as DD.
Lowry -Ross-DD is a good trio. Potentially DD is the weak link and he's an all-star. Curry-Thompson-Iggy are better defensively even with Curry but worse offensively even with Curry.
What I love most about Ross is his foot speed. The guy can stay in front of the John Wall's & Westbrook's. I hope he never signs up for the infamous Raptor 10 lb of muscle bulking summer program.
We still really need a big wing who can handle the Melo's & Joe Johnson's but not necessarily a starting 3.

Really curious to see him and Big val this year after their disappointing play offs last year.
Terrence Ross has already gotten bigger. He posted a pic on instagram recently with Terrence Jones and some other guy and he looked thicker to me. Not where it was too much though. I think he's just the right size now from that pic at least. He needs to get a little stronger but I don't want him getting too big either.
As much as it was hopeful to be the only playoff team starting two sophomores, is it ideal to have Ross start on a playoff team? Not to rehash the value of Ross but now that there is a but more money lying around, there are bigger names being mentioned as a SF target. Is there any realistic target that would move Ross to the bench? Is that a bad thing?
For The Win
Bigger names like who? Ariza? I'll take Ross any day of the week. Can't wait to see him improve again this season.
Moving Ross to the bench would indeed be very poor for his development. I'd prefer a backup small forward to use if required against bigger small forwards, like people have stated above.
Rather start him so he gets experience.
