    When you look at the comparisons here, they're all over the place. Hard to give much credence to this site's projections...

    I'm not sure why he jumped on their board to #9 especially before the NBA draft combine.

    Thanks. That's a jump for sure. I may have to watch some video on him.

    First thought. He resembles Trae Young in appearance.

    So this kid breaks the record for basketball IQ test and plays a lot like Trae Young.

    Don't tell 1Sun. It's our little secret. :wink2:

    Thanks for the heads up Gator.

    He plays nothing at all like Trae Young. He is a nice college player who actually more closely resembles Mario Chalmers.

    I'm glad to hear this. This means the kid is going to be really good.

    Legitimate NBA player, but projects as a career back-up, as Chalmers should have been. (The only reason Chalmers ever started was that he had Wade, Lebron, Bosh and Ray Allen there to carry the team.)

    No interest in him at #10 but here’s a nice little video on Terry:

    I'm intrigued by young players with tangible skills and shooting seems to be his best asset.

    If his measurements check out at the combine and he can play point guard I'm willing to keep an open mind.

    I will admit I haven’t watched or seriously looked into him at all. I had done deep dives into about the top 20 players in this draft but he generally didn’t show up. Seems like if we really like him though that a trade back would be a better use of the #10 asset. With Jones though you never know. Since he has only conducted 1 draft it is impossible to separate trends from aberrations.

    It's so hard to know when we haven't seen these players play live.

    I must say when my first impression was Trae Young I got excited. We will have to keep our eyes open for any combine information and whether he moves up in other mocks.

    Hmmm...

    I watched his film a few months back and thought he was sloppy, too thin, an absolutely terrible defender, and displayed limited athleticism. I was concerned he couldn't get that shot off against a Patrick Beverly type since he has almost no one on one skill.

    Gaining an inch and weighing in at 190 would certainly help. The kid can outright shoot (well... catch and shoot). But how does that clean up the mess he is with the ball in his hands? Or his suspect athleticism? Or his limited one on one potential? How is he all that different from Ty Jerome (in that he's a smart player who can shoot 3's, but doesn't do much else)?

    He has a lot of room to grow. Personally, I wouldn't put him above Kira Lewis, Killian Hayes, or Theo Maledon yet. I'd still have him ahead of Dotson, Anthony, and Mannion.

    I appreciate the feedback. Watching game video (which can be deceptive) Terry appears faster than Jerome and has a quick compact release on his shot. I especially see the difference in shooting. Jerome has trouble getting his shot off against NBA competition and below average wingspan doesn't help. Defense will be a issue for Terry though. I'm not making a case for him. Just some observations.
