Summary:

Terry Armstrong is something of an enigma. There was some early season draft buzz about him to start the year, but he never really factored into his team’s rotation, and he didn’t play very much at all this year. He is an athletic combo guard that went overseas to play for Southeast Melbourne in the NBL, but the experiment for him didn’t go well for him this season.  He rarely got off the bench, and hasn’t built much draft stock despite having recently declared for the draft. 

He will need to find a team that will give him consistent playing time as he may be likely headed to the G-League or to a lower level league overseas next year, and he looks to be far away from being able to be a contributor in the NBA.  He will really need to work hard to improve his overall game, but he may still have a long way to go before being able to make it to the NBA.
