And secondly, why is Ross "relegated to long-term backup"?
I'm pretty sure Colangelo said ON DRAFT NIGHT he could see Ross playing the 2 or 3 beside Derozan.
I believe his words were (summarizing, this is not an exact quote) "Wing players are Wing players. Traditional positions are slowly going out the window. Now its more a combination of Guards, Wings and Forwards, as opposed to PG, SG, SF, PF, C."
Especially considering not ONE rumour "leaked" from BC has actually been accurate since he's been here. That I can think of anyway.
