Terry Armstrong goes undrafted in 2020 NBA Draft: Bella Vista Prep alum is now a free agent

Shooting guard Terry Armstrong from the South East Melbourne Phoenix in Australia — and, previously, Bella Vista Prep — was not selected Wednesday in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Armstrong is now a free agent and can sign with any team.

Here is our pre-draft breakdown of Armstrong from earlier this week:

SG Terry Armstrong, South East Melbourne Phoenix (Australia) (Bella Vista Prep) 

Measurables: 6-foot-6, 185 pounds 

Draft position: Late second round or undrafted 

Armstrong bounced around throughout his high school career, starting at Carman-Ainsworth in Flint, Mich., then moving to Joseph Wheeler in Marietta, Ga., as a sophomore before transferring to Bella Vista in Scottsdale for his final two seasons.

Bella Vista plays a national schedule, and Armstrong was named season MVP of The Grind Season in 2017-18 and 2019 Grind Session offensive player of the year in helping the team win the Grind Session World Championship final.

Although he committed to Arizona in October 2018, he decided to forego college basketball and signed with the South East Melbourne Phoenix in Australia’s National Basketball League through the league’s Next Stars program. However, he often did not make the Phoenix’s game day rotation, battling injuries throughout the season and making only eight appearances with the team, averaging 2.2 minutes per game.

Carl Berman and Chad Mart, NetScouts Basketball: “An electric, high-flying shooting guard. His first year playing professionally did not turn out the way many would have thought. Although his stats are limited, he remains a young talent with a high ceiling.”
