The Los Angeles Lakers are signing Two-Way player Austin Reaves to a standard NBA contract. The deal is expected to be for two years, with the second year either a team option or non-guaranteed.
LA had previously signed Reaves to a Two-Way deal. The 6'5'' guard went undrafted out of Oklahoma at the 2021 NBA Draft. Reaves then played Summer League for the Lakers. In Las Vegas, Reaves averaged 7.0 points, 2.0 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game.
Reaves was previously a two-year starter at Oklahoma after transferring from Wichita State. He chose to enter the draft, rather then taking advantage of the NCAA allowing seniors a "bonus" season in 2021-22.
The Lakers roster now stands at 14 players on standard contracts. It's been expected Los Angeles would leave their final standard roster spot open for flexibility in-season.
