The Los Angeles Clippers had been in a tight spot for several weeks as they were operating very close to their hard salary cap for the upcoming season, which did not allow them to even give out a fully guaranteed minimum salary for the 13th roster spot. With that in mind, the Clippers made a trade on Tuesday with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Clippers had been looking for a team willing to take on Jared Dudley and the Bucks accepted him by shipping Carlos Delfino and Miroslav Raduljica to Los Angeles as part of the deal. Both Delfino and Raduljica are probably not going to be on the Clippers roster for too long.

All 30 NBA teams will spend the next four weeks inviting players to training camp, and while some might get a small amount of guaranteed money, most will sign deals with no salary protection. Almost all of the camp invitees will be waived at some point during the preseason and, for those with less than three years of NBA experience, they may not be released until just prior to the start of the 2014-15 regular season, so teams can designate them to their D-League rosters.

There has been a lot of pressure on Terrence Ross to fulfill his potential ever since the Toronto Raptors selected him one pick ahead of Andre Drummond in the 2012 NBA draft. Throw in the fact that Drummond has looked like a future max-contract player in his first two years in the league, and you can see the type of expectations Ross has to face.

To his credit, the 23-year-old shooting guard made some strides in his second season, improving his shooting and raising his PER from 10.48 as a rookie to 12.09. However, he'll have to show more in his third year to cement himself as a starter in this league. Just how bright is Ross' future? And what's the ideal fit for him?
