NBA Comparison: Kent Bazemore

Current Ability: 7

Projection as an NBA Player: 7.5

Projected Draft Spot: 2nd Round

Opinion: I think Reed can be a good role player and immediate contributor in the NBA. He is the prototypical 3 and D player who has improved every season. Reed does not need the ball in his hands to succeed and always finds a way to contribute to winning. He is one of the best wing defenders in the draft and can guard anywhere from 1-4 because he has a very long wingspan and a strong body. Reed has led by example on both ends of the floor in Conference play.
