If you think that Ross has a higher ceiling than that then I'm not sure what to say.

Do you think he will sustain that play for longer than the rest of this season if even that long? Do you think he can score 22 pts if he's not being force-fed shots on a crappy Magic team? Even if you do, its irrelevant because even if you replace Ross on with Afflalo on this team we won't be contending any time soon, so we should keep the youth.

I think Ross could play a role similar to that which Afflalo should play, and he could play it better because of his superior athleticism.
