Toronto nabs Terrence Ross at No. 8
By Jeff Caplan
DALLAS -- Former Mavericks assistant Dwane Casey and the Toronto Raptors took one of the Mavericks' top choices off the board unexpectedly, selecting Washington's Terrence Ross with the No. 8 pick.
The 6-foot-7 shooting guard is regarded as an explosive athlete, a good shooter and a promising defender, however most draft experts did not have him going this early. He's got great size for a shooting guard, but the Mavs will now have to focus elsewhere.
Mavs prospects still on the board include shooting guard Jeremy Lamb, point guard Kendall Marshall, power forwards John Henson and Arnett Moultrie, small forward Royce White and center Meyers Leonard, among others.
