Jonas Valanciunas + Terrence Ross

Or

Tristan Thompson + Dion Waiters?

Well, I think there's a pretty good chance that zero of these guys ever end up being top 100 players in the league.

That said, Vala is the only one with a really shot to be an impact player, so I'd take Vala/Ross even though Ross is probably the least interesting prospect.

Vala > Thompson > Waiters > Ross

For me...

Ross, slightly better than Nick Young
Waiters, slashing version of Ben Gordon
Valanciunas, better offensive Asik/Ilgauskas as ceiling
Thompson, Kenyon Martin

So...

Thompson > Valanciunas >>> Waiters=Ross

More or less

What about Unibrow and Rivers in this comparison too? Where would they sit?
