NBA Comparison: Anthony Mason

Strengths: 6’10 mobile big man … Good size with a 7’0.75 wingspan and 9’0 standing reach … 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 … 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 and shake his man. Uses screens as a ball handler. Good court vision and passing ability for a big man … Can pass out of a drive … Good hands … Good shooting from … Brings an inside out offensive presence … Can shoot off the dribble or a step back … Solid free throw stroke … 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 … Good understanding of the game …

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 … Doesn’t always jump for boards or blocked shots, relies on getting position for rebounds and could contest more shots as a help defender … Rarely sprints up the court, tends to go at his own pace …

Outlook: MVP of the 2016 Underclassmen All-America 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 …

Notes: Measured 6’8.25 without shoes, 6’9 with shoes, 215 lbs, with a 7’1 wingspan and 8’11.5 standing reach at the 2014 USA Junior National Team Mini Camp
