Terrance Ferguson

Scouting Report

A teammate of Emmanuel Mudiay at Dallas' Prime Prep Academy, Ferguson chose a similar path as the current Denver Nuggets guard by spurning college in favor of playing a year overseas prior to testing the NBA waters. Though he's not likely to be picked as high as Mudiay, the seventh overall choice in 2015, the one-time Arizona commit could hear his name called in the mid-first round due to his long-term potential as a shooter and perimeter defender. Ferguson's 4.6 points per game and 38.1 field-goal percentage as a reserve for the Adelaide 36ers of Australia's top professional league may not be numbers befitting of a possible lottery selection, but coaches and scouts were impressed by the maturity and team-first attitude he displayed as a teenager competing among grown men while stationed far from home. Ferguson has a chance to be more than a role player as his body and skills develop. He's already displayed great range and promise as a spot-up deep shooter, and he has the length and athleticism to emerge into a quality contester on the other end of the floor. Though he's one of the youngest members of this year's draft class (he turned 19 in May), evaluators still remain split on Ferguson's true ceiling. He's a shaky ball-handler who hasn't shown much ability to create his own shot and struggles from the foul line, where he converted just 59.7 percent of attempts for Adelaide. Still, the fact that Ferguson has shown he can contribute in a specialized role at a higher level should endear him to teams seeking a "3 and D" player with two-way upside.
