David Glenn has his take on some of the ACC talent participating in pre-draft camps. Here is what he had to say about Reyshawn Terry:
2. Reyshawn Terry, North Carolina — Unlike most camp participants, Terry was not the best player on his college team. At the request of the UNC coaches, he played a complementary role for the Tar Heels, while deferring to Wright and Tyler Hansbrough. As a senior, Terry averaged fewer than 10 points per game. In the eyes of many scouts, that background made him difficult to evaluate as a collegian, and it made his appearance in Orlando even more important than it was for most other prospects.
A 6-8, 228-pound wing forward, Terry displayed at camp a familiar blend of impressive offensive skills, mixed defensive success and questionable decision-making. That may not sound like much, but in this setting and against this competition, his scoring prowess — on 3-pointers, mid-range jumpers and drives to the hoop — set him apart as one of the top 10 prospects who participated in the camp games.
Still to come for Terry and many other campers are individual workouts for various NBA teams. The New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks and Washington Wizards are among those known to have scheduled Terry for private workouts. His performances there likely will determine whether he is picked in the first (late) or second round on June 28.
Excuse me, but I think the line about “questionable decision-making” is humorous. It is interesting see that part of his game transcends college. That being said, I still think he should have taken the last shot at the end of regulation against Georgetown.
