SG: Terrence Ross
The Raptors were fresh off missing the playoffs for a fourth straight year in 2012 when they drafted Ross with the eighth overall pick. The 6-6 wing was coming off of a breakout second season at Washington, and Toronto desperately needed some scoring punch on the wing next to DeMar DeRozan.
Ross was a fine role player during his four and half seasons with the Raptors, but he never lived up to the hype of a top-ten draft pick. He averaged 9.5 points and 2.6 rebounds in 23.3 minutes per game before being traded to the Magic just before the deadline in 2017.
Terrence Ross never became a star for the Toronto Raptors.
The 32-year-old currently plays for the Phoenix Suns. He is on his third team and in his 11th NBA season. Ross is still playing 20 to 25 minutes per game off the bench.
Terrence Ross did not live up to the hype, but few can fault the Raptors for the pick. Evan Fournier and Austin Rivers are the only two wings still in the NBA that were picked after him in the first round. Khris Middleton, Draymond Green, and Jae Crowder were all taken in the second round, but selecting those players in the lottery would have been a massive gamble at the moment.
