Jake LaRavia

20-Year-Old ForwardF
2022 Fantasy Outlook
After two seasons at Indiana State, LaRavia transferred to Wake Forest for his junior and final collegiate season. He averaged 14.6 points on 56/38/78 shooting, 6.6 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.7 combined steals-plus-blocks in his lone campaign with the Demon Deacons. The 6-foot-7 forward was selected with the 19th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft and went to the Grizzlies. There are questions about his ability to be a successful playmaker at the NBA level, for himself or others, but he did so effectively in his college system. He can cut, pass and make spot-up jumpers, and he's a solid defender with enough size to switch as a pro. With Jaren Jackson (foot) expected to be out for the first couple months of the season at least, LaRavia has an opportunity to make an impact immediately. He'll battle Brandon Clarke and Ziaire Williams for minutes at the four, but Memphis isn't an especially deep team. Read Past Outlooks
Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

LaRavia was born on Nov. 3, 2001, in Pasadena, California. His family moved from sunny Pasadena to Indianapolis when LaRavia was six years old. He played basketball for Lawrence Central High School in Indianapolis. He had a limited role until his senior season, in which he became the team's leading scorer, averaging 17.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.3 steals per game. He earned Indiana All-Star honors and helped Lawrence Central win its first sectional title since 2012. LaRavia first committed to playing college basketball for SIU Edwardsville but reopened his recruitment after a coaching change. He later committed to Indiana State. As a freshman at Indiana State, LaRavia averaged 9.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. He was named to the All-Newcomer and All-Freshman Teams in the Missouri Valley Conference. In his sophomore season, LaRavia averaged 12.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, earning second-team All-MVC recognition. Following the departure of coach Greg Lansing, LaRavia transferred to Wake Forest. He averaged 14.6 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game as a junior. He was named to the second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference. On March 29, 2022, LaRavia declared for the 2022 NBA draft while maintaining his college eligibility. On June 1, 2022, he announced that he would remain in the draft and forgo his remaining college eligibility. He was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 19th overall pick.

Should compete for starting job

August 14, 2022
LaRavia is expected to compete for a starting role ahead of the 2022-23 season, Joe Mullinax of Locked On Grizzlies reports.
ANALYSIS
LaRavia was a first-round pick in the 2022 NBA Draft after performing well at Wake Forest last year, and a starting role should be available in the Grizzlies' frontcourt since Jaren Jackson (foot) is expected to miss several months following a procedure that he underwent in late June. LaRavia is best known for his offensive impact, as he shot 36.4 percent from beyond the arc over his three collegiate seasons and averaged 14.6 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 34.1 games with the Demon Deacons last year. The 20-year-old had a lackluster performance in the Summer League last month but should be firmly in the competition for a starting role early in the year.
