Reed saw decent playing time down the stretch in 2021-22, giving the Nuggets some solid wing production off the bench. While he should be able to fill a similar role moving forward, there is not a lot of room for growth, especially with the return of Jamal Murray and Michael Porter. Based on what we have seen thus far throughout his career, Reed is likely to have more of an impact in reality than fantasy, meaning managers can safely overlook him across all formats.
Reed, a 6-foot-5 guard out of Miami, FL who signed a four-year contract with the Suns on July 6, 2017, suffered a torn left meniscus in the 2017 NBA Summer League and ended up missing over four months of playing time. He was productive before the injury, averaging 14.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game while playing in six summer contests. When Reed finally returned to the Suns they assigned him to their G League squad, where he earned calls to Phoenix on two occasions. On Jan. 27, he had perhaps the biggest game of his basketball career against the Hornets, going 4-for-4 from beyond the arc while posting 16 total points, six rebounds and two assists. In the 2018 Summer League he averaged 13.4 points and 3.0 assists. We'll see if it's all enough for Reed to earn a bench spot with the 2018-19 Suns, though that's about his peak for fantasy purposes for now.
Reed was selected by the Suns with the 32nd overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and is expected to join the team as another sharpshooting wing. The 6-foot-6 guard shot an impressive 40 percent from three-point land during his final season at Miami and was also a 2017 All-ACC Defensive Team selection, so he’s a capable two-way threat. He's got plenty of potential as a three-and-D prospect, but he'll likely be buried on the depth chart for the majority of his rookie campaign. As a result, he can likely be avoided in the vast majority of Fantasy formats in what will seemingly be a developmental year.
