Ferguson is a tall, skilled swingman that has plenty of athletic tools.  Certainly, Arizona Wildcat fans would have liked to see him suit up alongside Markkanen this season, but he opted for a change of scenery by taking his talents to play in Australia’s top professional league instead.  Regardless, Ferguson has the skills to succeed at any level.​

But Ferguson may be more than just a shooter.  He can use off-ball movement to garner buckets, he also is a solid facilitator, and he is also a smart basketball player.  He may need to improve defensively, but Terrance Ferguson may have the skills to end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
