NBA Comparison: Anthony Mason

Strengths: 6’10 mobile big man … Good size with a 7’0.75 wingspan and 9’0 standing reach … Versatile skillset. Great coordination and balance … Good strength and frame. Has no problem establishing position in the low post or for rebounds … Finishes through contact … Shot 4.8 free throws per game over the Under Armour Association … Soft touch around the basket … Shows some craft on his layups that you don’t typically see from big men … Very good footwork on the perimeter and low block … Can score with either hand and uses glass when appropriate … Reads and reacts well in the post. Shot 54.5% from the floor at the NBPA Top 100 … Finished fifth on the Under Armour Association in shooting percentage at 48.9% … Handles well on the move for his size. Can put the ball on the floor, changes directions, and shakes his man. Effective spin move. Takes rebounds coast to coast. Uses screens as a ball handler … Unselfish. Good court vision and passing ability. Knows where the pass is going before he receives the ball. Good with touch passes … Can pass out of a drive … Alert with great hands … Good shooting from … Brings an inside out offensive presence … Can shoot off the dribble or a step back … Solid free throw stroke … Reactive hands and timing on defense. Good shot blocker … Averaged 1.3 blocks per game at the NBPA Top 100 and two per game over the Under Armour Association … Averaged 1.2 steals per game over the Under Armour Association … Led the Under Armour Association in rebounds with 9.9 per game and grabbed 2.1 offensive rebounds per game … Spaces the floor … Good understanding of the game … Naturally gifted and talented. Makes plays you don’t often see from a player his size at any level …

Weaknesses: Needs to improve consistency … Motor comes and goes … Coasts at times and plays content … There aren’t many players who can contain Reid in the paint at the high school level, but he doesn’t always assert himself down low … Settles for shots on the perimeter, even when his team is trying to get back into the game … Can be turnover prone … Averaged 2.6 per game over the Under Armour Association … Good mobility and fluidity but not incredibly explosive … Rarely sprints up the court, tends to go at his own pace …

Outlook: Incoming LSU freshman … Scored 15 points and grabbed 11 rebounds (four offensive) in the McDonald’s All-American Game … MVP of the 2016 Underclassmen All-American Game … Averaged 14.1 points per game over the Under Armour Association … Reid is one of the more physically gifted players in a weaker 2018 class, playing to his strengths will be a big factor in tapping into his potential …
