Terrence Ross is up for grab in the trade market. 

Per Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the Orlando Magic is making Ross available for a potential trade transaction. 

As such, teams are hoping that the Magic will lower the asking price for the veteran to two multiple second-round picks due to its hefty $11 million final year of contract. 

In the last season, the club was reportedly looking for a first-round replacement. 

Terrence Ross is available on the trade market, league sources told HoopsHype. Previously at the trade deadline, the asking price for Ross was a first-round pick. With Ross now owed $11.5 million in the final year of his contract, rival teams with interest are hoping Orlando lowers its asking price to multiple second-round picks, similar to when the team previously traded Evan Fournier to the Celtics.

Playing off the bench in all of his 63 games last season with the Magic, Ross had an average of 10.0 points, 2.6 boards, 1.8 assists in 39 percent efficiency from the field. 

With their roster now being loaded by promising backcourt players in the likes of Jalen Suggs, Cole Anthony, Markelle Fultz and RJ Hampton, Ross is an ideal trade piece for the rebuilding Orlando squad.
