NBA Comparison: Eddie Jones

Strengths: Solid ball-handler ...Very good court vision, finding teammates off P&R, or fast break ... Runs the lane well in transition with ability to spot up on the wing or finish a lob ... Lacks a conscience. Possessing irrational confidence at times, allowing him to play at a high level without perceived nerves or anxiety in high-pressure situations ... Long and active defender on-ball ... Excellent pass denial. ... Capable help defender, proven through passing lane deflections and weak-side shot blocks ... Great footwork in the face-up game, mostly showcasing pump-fake, one dribble pull up/step-back ... Good 3pt and mid range shooter ... Shot has good lift and form ... Exciting dunker in traffic or off lobs, with exceptional contortion abilities and body control in the air ... Length and ball instincts make him a great rebounder for a guard ...

Weaknesses: Despite his confidence, can seemingly get lost in the flow of the game at times ... Needs to further develop explosive first step, to use quickness to his advantage ... Must improve finishing at the rim on non-dunks ...Will need to develop counters to offensive wing moves ... Plenty of space to bulk up frame ... Continue to build on the beginnings of post-game he flashed ... Shot selection can lead him astray at times ... Can benefit from veteran support/mid-first round selection to help add seasoning ...

Notes: Leaves University of Washington after two seasons of exciting moments, dominating stretches, and occasional silent spurts ... All PAC-12 selection as a sophomore ... Got better as season went on, averaging 25 ppg in UW NIT Semifinal run ... High school teammate of Terrence Jones

Logan Lemberger 4/25/12

Strengths: Good athlete with a very natural shooting ability ... Smooth leaper that can get off the ground quickly, whether he's elevating for a jump shot or finishing in transition ... Quick first step ... Easy target for lob passes ... Understands how to move without the ball ... Always a threat to cut backdoor ... Very creative in finding ways to finish around the hoop, often using the rim to protect the ball from defenders ... Excellent hang-time and body control ... Not afraid to dunk over the top of players … Good frame that should be able to hold a good amount of muscle ... Measured 6'7", which gives him ideal size for a shooting guard ... Has a solid (though unadvanced) ball-handling ability ... Prefers just one or two quick dribbles to create enough separation from his defender to get off a quality shot ... Does most of his damage on the perimeter ... Great-looking jumper, with a quick release and smooth mechanics ... Confident shooter that displays no hesitation when firing ... Likes to camp near the corners and let his teammates set him up ... Already has range out to the NBA three-point line ... Is a natural catch-and-shoot player ... Often seems unfazed by defenders who are closing-out on him when he is shooting ... Shows a willingness to compete on the glass, especially on put-back opportunities ... Has the length and lateral quickness to be an effective defender … Unselfish player that doesn't need to dominate the basketball to be an effective teammate ...

Weaknesses: Needs seasoning ... Was regulated to a role-playing shooter in his freshman season, and didn't get many chances to show what else he can do ... Has yet to prove that he can consistently create offense for himself ... Can beat defenders at this level with his speed but doesn't possess the ability to break players down with his ball-handling skills ... Not the defender he could be, but should improve in time with added experience and strength ...

Overall: Terrence Ross will look to build on what was a very respectable freshman campaign ... He's primed for a breakout season in 2011-2012, and should be a first round pick whenever he comes out ...

Notes: Measured 6'7 (in shoes) 197 lbs, with a 6'7 wingspan at the 2011 Kevin Durant Skills Academy.
