The elite level and variety of ways Terry can shoot the ball from long range will surely fascinate NBA teams, for starters.

That’s reinforced by the volume with which Terry launched up triples this season at Stanford, where he averaged two threes per game and hit 40.8 percent on 152 attempts. While some issues have to get ironed out, specifically being able to speed up and getting off his shot quicker, there’s no question he can fill it up in a hurry, both on and off the ball.

However, Terry is more than just a shooter as his crafty attacking prowess and soft touch with both hands is equally on par with his shooting abilities as he converted 60.4 percent of his scoring opportunities at the rim this season, per Hoop-Math. And averaging 4.4 free throw attempts per 40 minutes, as he did, shows that Terry has an ability to absorb contact and get to the free throw line, despite his scrawny frame.

While Terry’s distribution numbers aren’t overwhelming, he does display good vision and can obviously operate adequately in pick-and-roll situations with his unselfishness, thanks to the threat of his shot to find open teammates on the floor.

On the other side of the ball, Terry’s nose for the ball, hustle and activity are all positive assets and he isn’t afraid to switch on to players with more size, which might be virtually everyone at the next level in that context.
