NBA Comparison: Marcus Thonrton

Strengths: Reed is the true definition of a swingman … He has the size (6’6” and 206 lbs) and length (7’0 wingspan) to play either the two or the three spots in the NBA … Uses his length effectively in his game … Very versatile player … Jack of all trades type … Will fit right into the league as a 3-and-D type of player … Consistent shooter from outside … Comfortable taking shots from the NBA range already … Is also a good athlete … Both laterally and vertically … Gives his all on defensive end … Takes matchups head on … Can guard multiple positions … Will do the little things as well … All about hustle and effort …

Weaknesses: Wasn’t always aggressive in attacking … Can’t create his own offense yet … Too reliant on other players to make himself useful offensively … Is not an elite-level athlete … Limbers too much for such a long player … Besides shooting doesn’t really bring much to the floor … Will not be a capable playmaker for others … Though he was a willing defender he had his struggles against some of the top ACC players …

Outlook: Measured 6'5 (in shoes) 196 lbs, with a 6'10.5 wingspan at the 2012 LeBron James Skills Academy.If I were Reed I would do everything in my power to make Jared Dudley my vet and then listen to every and anything he wants to share about staying in the NBA. The path to a 10-plus year career in the league is laid out in front of him and if he puts the work in then he’ll be a rotational piece for years to come.
