Dallas Mavericks wing Josh Reaves continued his domination in the G-League with a monster game on Nov. 20. See how he performed here.
The Dallas Mavericks signed undrafted rookie Josh Reaves to a two-way contract this summer. The 22-year-old was a four-year starter at Penn State before joining the professional ranks. He was known for his standout defense in college.
Reaves’ two-way contract allows him to play a maximum of 45 days with the Mavericks this season. He will spend the rest of his time with the Texas Legends in the G-League.
Reaves joined the Legends for training camp and has been playing well early on. That included another massive performance on Wednesday against the Stockton Kings.
Reaves earned the start and played 36 minutes. He produced 26 points, four rebounds, five assists, four steals, one block, and five 3-pointers made. Reaves was nine of 14 from the field. He also got fans out of their seats with this amazing play.
Here is a look at his full highlight tape from the Legends loss to the Kings.
Reaves is standing out after the Legends’ first five games. He is averaging 16.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.2 steals in 34.7 minutes per game. Reaves continues to struggle to hit his shots. He has made just nine of 37 3-point attempts. That is where he needs to make his biggest improvement this season.
Mavericks fans were impressed with Reaves’ performance in the Las Vegas Summer League. They should keep an eye on his development this season. He is hoping to become the next undrafted player to work his way into the Mavs rotation. He needs to continue his pesky defense and improve his shooting to make that leap.
