There are some similarities between Lakers rookie Austin Reaves and Alex Caruso, as both players entered the NBA undrafted and were able to find their place in the league.
Both players play the shooting guard position and have some comparable skills. Because of that, comparisons are being made between Reaves and Caruso. Recently, the Lakers guard was asked if he saw some similarities between him and the current Bulls guard.
“[Alex Caruso] was very successful as everybody knows. He made the right basketball play at all times and did the right things and played as hard as he possibly could,” Reaves said.
“That was something that I wanted to do coming in, I knew we had a lot of talent, a lot of guys that can score the basketball and that aspect would really just bring the other side of it, play defense, hustle like all the things I mentioned earlier. That was something that I looked at and thought I could bring to the table.”
