What the experts say

ESPN [$] (Jonathan Givony): 52nd

The Athletic [$] (Sam Vecenie): 26th

Sports Illustrated (Jeremy Woo): 17th

Sporting News (Chris Stone): 34th

Bleacher Report (Jonathan Wassermann): 24th

The Ringer (Kevin O’Connor): 8th


Having placed Terry 17th on his most recent Big Board, Woo laid out the case why Terry may stand as the best shooter in this draft class and the versatile role he can carve out at the next level:

"“Terry has a case as the best pure shooter in the draft, with an offensive skill set that points to real long-term upside as his body matures and he adds strength. His compact release and feel for moving the ball around the perimeter made him dangerous right away at Stanford, and he finished well around the rim, particularly for a guy his size. He stands to improve creating shots for himself and others off the dribble, but he’ll be able to play on and off the ball, and profiles as the type of talent worth investing in early and developing. Terry will get targeted defensively given his size, but if his shooting keeps progressing and he fills out, at least some of those concerns should be mitigated. He’s an obvious first-round talent who flew under the radar for much of the season, and a particularly intriguing fit for guard-needy teams that can pair him with a bigger playmaker.”"

In speaking to Sam Vecenie of The Athletic ($) last month, Terry also detailed his intentions upon declaring for the draft this year and why he’s very likely to stick through the process following the early entry deadline.
