Report: Terrence Ross & Raptors Still Talking Extension

With the deadline 2 hours away, the Raptors' discussions with Terrence Ross are going down to the wire.

The always excellent Marc Stein dropped us this quick hit a few minutes ago:

Terrence Ross is undoubtedly a polarizing figure, and there's nothing makes the difference between his and Jonas Valanciunas' development more clear than seeing the discrepancy in the urgency with which Masai Ujiri has acted in securing their extensions.

The number we're talking here per annum is a total mystery. Keep in mind that the salary cap is going from $70M to perhaps $90M next year, and to a gargantuan $108M the year after that. A $10/year figure next year is equivalent to $7.8M for 2014-15. That's in the range of guys like Arron Afflalo, Markieff Morris, Jeff Teague, Ersan Ilyasova, Avery Bradley, and Kosta Koufos. You'd want almost all of those guys over the current version of Ross, but that's what you'd be paying for potential.

We'll keep you posted as we learn more.
