CBS Sports college basketball analyst Jeff Goodman projects the Minnesota Timberwolves will select former Washington Huskies shooting guard Terrence Ross with the 18th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Via Goodman:
Ross can score the ball in a variety of ways -- and would give the Wolves a young, talented wing -- especially if Michael Beasley and Martell Webster are gone. I'm not sure there's a better contested shooter in this draft.
Ross, an early entree draft candidate, averaged a team-high 16.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game last season. The 6-foot-6 swingman led the Huskies to the NIT semifinals at Madison Square Garden. His backcourt mate, freshman Tony Wroten also entered the draft early and is a projected first round selection as well.
