A few Monday night links to pass along.
— Jerry Brewer caught up with former Washington star Terrence Ross in Toronto last week. As a reserve, the No. 8 draft pick is averaging 6.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 16.7 minutes per game. Toronto is 6-19 and Ross said the toughest part of transitioning to the NBA for Ross is adjusting to the losing. “Getting so close every night and not coming up with the victory, I think that’s been the hardest thing,” he said.
— Meanwhile the Memphis Grizzlies recalled former UW standout Tony Wroten Jr. who spent the previous three weeks with the Reno Bighorns, their D-League team. Wroten played six games as a reserve averaging 13.3 points, 3.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 23.3 minutes.
