Two-Way Tracker: Meet New Wolves Guard Jared Terrell

By Jake Winderman | July 5, 2018

Player: Jared Terrell

College: Rhode Island (2014-18)

Height/Weight: 6-foot-3, 215 pounds

NBA Team/G League Affiliate: Minnesota Timberwolves/Iowa Wolves

College Breakdown: Jared Terrell had been a productive player throughout the first three years of his college career but really broke out during his senior year. During the 2017-18 season, Terrell averaged 16.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.5 steals per game on 41.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc. Terrell was named to the All-Atlantic 10 First Team and helped lead Rhode Island to a Round of 64 victory in the NCAA Tournament over Oklahoma. He ranked 6th in total points (572) scored in the Atlantic 10 dand had the 7th-best 3-point percentage in the conference. 

Scouting Report: Terrell projects to fill the “3-and-D” role at the pro level. He’s a solid scorer off the dribble and has the athleticism to make plays when he finds himself out of position with the ball. His defense steadily improved throughout his four years in college and he showed impressive defensive instincts during his senior campaign. If he can improve his passing, he’ll be a solid option at shooting guard moving forward for the Timberwolves organization.

Organizational Fit: The Wolves’ affiliate (formerly known as the Energy) has had success in the past, winning four division titles, one conference title and one NBA G League championship. While the team has missed the playoffs for the past four seasons, Terrell will have the chance to bring Iowa and the rabid Wolves fan base back to the playoffs with his stellar outside shot and all-around athleticism. Terrell is the type of player that can make an immediate impact on both ends of the floor.
