Terrence Ross soars, Tony Wroten demoted

Two months into their NBA rookie seasons, former Washington stars Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten Jr. appear to be on two different paths.

Tuesday may have been a turning a point in each of their young careers.

Ross scored a career-high 19 points for Toronto, which lost 117-111 in Houston. Despite the defeat, the No. 8 pick in the NBA draft gave Raptors fans a glimpse of his potential when he flushed four spectacular dunks and drained a few three-pointers.

Check out the highlight video (below).

Meanwhhile, Wroten, the 25th player taken in the draft, has struggled to find minutes with Memphis, which has the best record in the NBA at 10-2.

He’s appeared in just three games for a total of eight minutes.

The Grizzlies assigned Wroten, 19, its Development League affiliate, the Reno Bighorns. He’s expected to play Friday.
