2020 Fantasy Outlook
The big man out of LSU enjoyed a surprising level of success in his first season with Minnesota. He logged 16.5 minutes and averaged 9.0 points, 4.1 boards, 1.3 combined blocks/steals, 1.2 assists and 1.1 threes. He appeared in just 30 NBA contests while spending the rest of the season with the G-League affiliate, though he got the chance to shine at the end of the season. With Karl-Anthony Towns out due to a wrist injury, Reid started the final 11 games of the season and averaged 11.7 points, 6.5 boards, 2.3 combined blocks/steals, and 1.9 assists, proving to be a viable fantasy option while in the starting lineup. His performance has likely earned him a spot on the Timberwolves' permanent roster, and he'll have a great chance to log regular minutes as the first center off the bench. He's worth a late-round flyer in deeper leagues. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $4.2 million contract with the Timberwolves in July of 2019. Contract includes $1.93 million team option for 2022-23.
Personal Bio

Reid was born Aug. 26, 1999 in Asbury Park, New Jersey. He didn't start playing organized basketball until eighth grade, but caught on quickly. He attended Roselle Catholic High School and led his team to win the New Jersey Tournament of Champions his senior year, where Reid scored 22 points in the finals. He was later invited to the McDonalds All-Star game, where he recorded a double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Reid was a consensus five-star recruit coming out of high school and elected to play at LSU, where he majored in interdisciplinary studies. As a collegiate athlete, Reid's favorite NBA player was Kevin Durant. His favorite athlete outside of basketball at the time was fellow LSU alumni Odell Beckham Jr. You can follow Reid on Instagram @hollywood.naz.

College/International Summary

Reid spent one season at LSU. He appeared in 34 games (32 starts), averaging 13.6 points on 46.8 percent shooting from the field, 33.3 percent from three and 72.7 percent from the charity stripe. He also averaged 7.2 rebounds. Those numbers fueled an SEC All-Freshman Team selection. Reid set single-game season highs of 29 points (twice), 15 rebounds, four blocks, three steals and three assists. His best performance of the season occurred Mar. 15 during a loss to Florida. He posted 26 points (11-20 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 36 minutes. He went undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft, but signed a two-way contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves shortly after.

Another strong game Wednesday

April 8, 2021
Reid posted 16 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and five rebounds in 15 minutes during Wednesday's 141-127 loss to the Pacers.
ANALYSIS
Reid racked up plenty of points and rebounds relative to his workload in what was an absolute track meet of a basketball game. He's been strong over the past four games, as he's averaged 12.3 points on 60.0 percent shooting, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 19.3 minutes. That said, Reid's fantasy value is minimal for standard fantasy leagues unless Karl-Anthony Towns misses extended time.
