    Default NBA AM: The NBA Rookies To Watch

    http://www.hoopsworld.com/nba-am-the...kies-to-watch/

    Terrence Ross, Toronto: The training camp battle between Terrence Ross and Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan will be one to watch. DeRozan has the bigger, more mature NBA body and he is certainly more explosive as a scorer. However, Terrence Ross is a far better shooter. There has been talk that the Raptors would try and find ways to get both guys on the floor together, but if Ross wins the starterís job in camp or if injury strikes Ross has the ability to be an impact scorer. Like Barnes itís unlikely that Ross gets the minutes and touches to be a real Rookie of The Year candidate, but when you start looking at the Rookies to watch he could be one of the best of the bunch.

    DeMar is more explosive as a scorer? Not sure about that at all. Can't wait to see both these guys on the floor together.

    When Demar gets it going, he really gets it going.

    Saw that last night this kid could be so special......so explosive. Rudy DeMAr and Terrence are going have some incredible highlights coming this season.

    Does anyone see Ross cracking the regular rotation this up coming season?

    Casey was reluctant to play him last year and with a new GM and last year under contract he's definitely in win now mode I believe. One would assume Fields should be better then last year and with Gay and Demar cemented in the 30+ MPG is there meaningful minutes for him?

    As soon as Ross can come in and not stink up the joint every second game, he will crack the regular rotation. as long as he continues to be inconsistent he will not. and please people, let's not hear any of that "well, if coach would only give him 20 minutes a game he could get consistent." That's not the way it works.

    I see both sides to that. Might be a debate that's already been hashed out but I would say that if the coaches and staff decided that accountability was more important than letting him play through mistakes it was the right call. If you feel he would be better off learning from those mistakes in real time, that's another argument as well... I don't really know the answer and I have a feeling each player is different.

    It has been hashed before.

    The accountability argument takes huge beating with handling of Bargnani and AA (dreadful if you remove his top 3 games).

    Ross will get minutes if Raps advocate playing bigger minutes of small ball. May be our most dangerous line up this up coming season tbh its not a stretch thats a lot of athleticism and talent for opposing teams to try and contain. I see Ross playing 18-24 mpg next season.

    Bargnani was being forced down Casey's throat. AA was the only option for most of the season to hold Ross accountable with.

    I think the big problem was that Casey was playing to (TRY AND) win in the present.

    If you want to (TRY AND) win in the present, you play AA. If you want to win in the future, you play/develop Ross.

    I think Ross will have a really crappy year this year. I doubt his work ethic and I don't think he will make the jump that the rest of the other starting players are planning to make and ultimately fall behind. I can see him getting good in season 3 though. I don't believe he has the same drive as Quincy Acy and Jonas Valancuinas.

    Ross seems to be/think/act younger than his age. I mean, nothing wrong with being goofy and fooling around, but when it's time to get to work, you have to get to work. He also seems to have a bit of a sulky attitude. Just my impressions. I don't think he wants to be in TO. I think he is letting this affect his work ethic. I could be way off base, but that is the read I get on him.

    What makes you doubt his work ethic?
