Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
According to Jon Rothstein of CBSSports, the 'dream scenario' for the Minnesota Timberwolves in the end of this month's NBA Draft will be to draft swingman Terrence Ross with the 18th overall pick.
Minnesota is in desperate need of upgrades at the shooting guard and small forward positions. However, for the Wolves to be able to draft Ross, he'd have to fall and unfortunately for the Wolves, Ross' stock is at an all-time.
Terrence's biggest weakness is his ball handling ability, but he's a great spot-up shooter who can hit mid-range and three-point jumpers and spread the floor, pairing that with his length and athleticism, he'd be a great complement to Ricky Rubio in the backcourt.
Ross measures in at 6'7'', 197lbs. with an 8'5'' reach and a 6'7'' wingspan. Most mock drafts have him going somewhere between #8--#16.
Last year with Washington, Terrence averaged 31.1mpg in 35 games, 16.4ppg, 6.4rpg, 1.4apg, 1.3spg, 0.9bpg, 46% FG, 77% FT, 37% 3PT.
If the Minnesota Timberwolves want to draft Terrence Ross, they won't likely be able to do it with the 18th overall pick in the Draft. Some see Ross as one of the most-ready players and could be one of the top players in this Draft, years down the road.
At last week's NBA Draft Combine, the Star Tribune writer Jerry Zgoda asked Ross during an interview where his preference is to play, the first word out of his mouth was the Wolves because he knows they need a shooting guard.
