NY Knicks Small Forward Target #3 – Terrence Ross

Yet another guard/forward I’ve targeted via trade before this year’s deadline, Terrence Ross.

Ross should certainly cost the least in a trade as the Magic just had a massive fire sale and are looking to rebuild.

He would probably work best in a reserve role off of the bench so if the Knicks end up not bringing Alec Burks back after this season, Ross might be a solid replacement.

He could come off the bench or spot start at the 2 or the 3 spot and would provide a spark on offense.

A bit of a streaky scorer but when he does score, he scores in bunches. Coming off of arguably his best season yet, averaging 15.6 points off of the bench.

Ross is also on a relatively team-friendly deal in which he’s set to make $12.5 million next year and just $11.5 million the year after.

I’d imagine Alec Burks is going to get a contract somewhere in that realm after this season is up and if the Knicks decide to not extend that kind of offer and he walks, Ross would be a nice consolation prize.

I was surprised the Knicks didn’t kick the tires on a Ross trade prior to this year’s deadline but Leon Rose is the mastermind and there’s a reason why he’s in the position that he’s in today and I’m not.
