Terrence Ross is perfect for the Kings

Terrence Ross is another Lorenzo Romar gem hidden up in the Northwest.

Like most of Romar's players (e.g. Isaiah Thomas, Jon Brockman) he has great character and he has been taught NBA-level defense. He has a great combination of skill, athleticism and intelligence.

He was in the top 10 nationally for combined points and rebounds. He was 4th in the Pac-12 in scoring and 6th in rebounding (great for a guard/forward.) He is silky smooth -- the smoothest player with the prettiest, smoothest jump shot I have seen -- anywhere -- in a while. Even his dunks are smooth -- his 360-degree alley oops are like watching ballet. During the regular season, he deferred to the team too much and did not take enough of the offense, but when he did, he took over and dominated games.

He will be a sure-fire first round pick, but people will still overlook just how good he is because he is such a team player and they will not notice how dramatically he improved by the end of the year -- he averaged 25 ppg and 6 rpg in the NIT tournamant.

At 6-7, he can play defense, rebound, pass, shoot threes (including with people in his face,) jump, dunk, finish drives, has a great stop-and-pop jump shot, he plays hard all the time, and is a great team player on and off the court. His weakness is dribbling, which is good but can improve. The good thing is that he is still young (just finished his sophomore season) and will improve on that during the off-season. When he does, watch out, because he could be a more athletic Brandon Roy.

Here is some video from an early season game against Marquette, a strong team with a strong defense.

Ask Isaiah Thomas how good this guy is. The Kings can use an athletic, silky smooth, smart small foward who can score. Terrence Ross would be perfect for them, and the Kings, with IT there to guide him, would be the perfect team for him.
