According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to sign undrafted guard Austin Reaves to a two-way contract. It appears Reaves opted not to get drafted in order to select his own spot after the draft.
“Reaves signed with the Lakers on a two-way deal following the draft,” wrote Sam Vecenie of The Athletic. “Sources told The Athletic that Reaves turned down the ability to get drafted in order to pick his own spot after the draft. Ultimately, the Lakers were the most attractive option, and it’s easy to see why.”
Reaves transferred from Wichita State to Oklahoma in 2018. As a senior, Reaves averaged 18.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.6 assists in 34.6 minutes per game.
