Orlando Furioso acquired Ross from the Raptors on Valentine’s Day in exchange for in exchange for Serge Ibaka and has had an almost immediate impact on the team. In his second game with the Magic he was the top scorer but more importantly allowed head coach Frank Vogel to move Gordon back to power forward and Evan Fournier to small forward. “Everybody now is in their right position, frankly,” Vogel said. Thanks for being frank, Frank. Additionally, Ross will bring his three-point prowess, two-way gameplay, and experience beyond his young years experience to the table.
