Terrence Ross was the eighth overall pick of the Toronto Raptors in the 2012 NBA draft out of Washington. Other players in his draft class included Anthony Davis, Bradley Beal, Damian Lillard, Andre Drummond, Draymond Green and Khris Middleton.

Ross was known as a high-flyer in the early years of his career, winning the Slam Dunk Contest as a rookie. He beat Gerald Green, James White, Eric Bledsoe, Jeremy Evans and Kenneth Faried to become the first Raptors player to win the competition since Vince Carter.

"Torch" spent the first four and a half seasons of his career with the Raptors before getting traded to the Orlando Magic midway through the 2016-17 NBA season. He was at his best with the Magic as one of the best-scoring sixth men in the league.

His tenure in Orlando ended last season when his contract was bought out, and he became a free agent.


Ross then signed with the Phoenix Suns and provided a spark off the bench. However, he barely had any playing time in the postseason as the Suns were eliminated in the second round.
