Terrance Ferguson - boom or bust?
When he was recruited to the 6ers and NBL, the good word from the basketball community about him was his potential to be a first round lottery pick in the NBA. I don't see it.
However, I'm really struggling to see this potential and worry he had made a massive mistake. After watching him for close to half a season with the Adelaide 36ers, I doubt any NBA club would risk drafting him or he could slide as deep as a late second round pick. Offensively he isn't as strong as he should be and defensively his lock down D could be better. He has a nice jump shot but doesn't penetrate or attack the zone.
I hope he is considering a second season in the NBL as he isn't ready for the NBA.
Brad Newley played in the NBL with the Townsville Crocs as an 18 year old kid and dominated a far greater than Ferguson has been and he was only a late second round pick for Houston Rockets. Then you can add Joe Ingles and he was never drafted and took him 7 years of soild basketball in Europe to be rewarded with an NBA contract.
He needs someone to tell him, stay away from the draft for 12 more months and continue to develop the areas of his game the college system would have.
