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.
