It looks like the Los Angeles Lakers and second-year guard Austin Reaves have a mutual interest. Jovan Buha of The Athletic indicated as much in a recent report.
“Both the Lakers and Reaves’ camp have interest in Reaves re-signing in Los Angeles, according to multiple league sources who were granted anonymity so that they could speak freely,” he wrote. “The max the Lakers can offer Reaves is a four-year, $50.8 million contract if they chose to use his Early Bird Rights, but they also have the power to match any contract he signs with another team.”
Reaves is averaging 12.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game this season while shooting 51.8 percent from the field and 38.0 percent from deep.
