Terrence Ross Considering Overseas Offer

After 11 seasons as an NBA 3-and-D wing, veteran Terrence Ross has an overseas offer on his desk. The free agent doesn't appear to be close to a deal with an NBA team for the coming season, so would he consider a move to Serbia?

According to Ross, "They did offer me (a contract)... I was like, ‘Oh?’ Who knows... Who knows?” 

After being bought out by the Orlando Magic, the 32-year-old finished last season with the Phoenix Suns averaging just 9.0 points on 34.7% shooting from deep. His numbers took a precipitous dip starting in the 2021-22 season, after three straight years of averaging over 15 points per game for the Magic. 

He began his career as the No. 8 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft for the Toronto Raptors and immortalized himself in franchise history with a 51-point game in 2014. With that, he became the first player in NBA history to have a 50-point game while averaging under 10 points per game on the season.

Two other NBA veterans, PJ Dozier and Frank Kaminsky, recently signed in Serbia, with KK Partizan. Whether they would be interested in another foreigner is unknown. Ross did not name the team that made him the offer.  

There's still time for him to catch on with a North American team looking for a little shooting off the bench, so perhaps his Serbian offer will remain on hold for the time being.
