Lakers rookie Austin Reaves has the opportunity to play alongside three superstars in LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook. The 23-year-old shooting guard, who entered the NBA undrafted, spoke about the experience of having the Big Three next to him on the floor.

“They make their game really easy for other guys and they’re known for pass-first basketball with Russ and Bron,” Reaves said. “So they really make it easy. You just got to be at the right place at the right time and knock down shots because they’re going to get most of the attention on nightly basis. So really just be ready to knock down open shots in the corner and just compete on the other end.”

Reaves was third in minutes played in his team’s loss to the Golden State Warriors. He was also the fourth top scorer for the Lakers with 11 points.
