    Default Terrence Ross comparisons...

    I'm thinking Paul George with a 6-inch shorter standing reach. Their numbers from NBA and college are pretty similar. Both are lanky with serious ups and great lateral quicks, and both can rain fire when they're feeling it.

    What do you think?

    Now all we need is for Ross to have the same 2inch growth spurt in his 2nd year.

    If he can develop like Paul George that would be nice for all Raptor Fans.

    Young Latrell Sprewell

    What excites me the most about Ross isn't his shooting or his athleticism, it's his D

    I like the comparison on D, for sure, but Spree always had a handle. That's the biggest thing Ross needs to develop.

    Offense: JR Smith (mature) - range, athleticism
    Defense: Thabo Sefolosha - pesky, lateral quicks

    I think he'll be top 5 SG in a couple of years.

    His jumper has a Ray Allen-esque softness.

    Defensively, he covers space like if Keon Clark had been a wing (and that's not an insult).

    His demeanour, both in terms of how he carries himself and how he plays, has a McGrady-like coolness (and that may not be a good thing, because he certainly doesn't have the talent that can let you get away with that).

    Hmm...this is also a very good comparison. I think he still has potential to be a better scorer than Jones, hence my agreement with Finley comparisons.

    No disrespect but you guys sound a little crazy right now. In Ross' last 21 games he has eclipsed 11 points only five times and has been held to 4 points or lower 11 times! He has shown some glimpses of being a solid player but his below average games still outnumber his above average games at about a ratio of 4:1.

    Michael Finley? Tracy McGrady?! Ray Allen?!?!

    You are right, Finley a slightly better scorer than Eddie .. but Eddie was no slouch with multiple years averaging just under 20 ppg ..

    Yep, it really just depends on how much he can grow into a scoring role of some kind. I think I would hope for an Eddie Jones type player at worst. 15-20 ppg as a great shooter, and an excellent defender.

    Just wanted to add, he's clearly physically a bit closer to the more wiry Jones. Finley was pretty big and strong for a wing.
