That's not a normal pick at #58. Reed is a legitimate 6'9" 220+ pound defensive stalwart. He very easily could have went an entire round earlier.
Morey mentioned him as a great fit with Ben. Perhaps they're thinking about some funky lineup with Reed being the C who can run the floor with Simmons in a switchable and heavy-gambling line-up.
Don't think he has the perimeter skills to survive any non-center minutes?
He kinda reminds me of a raw version of Bam. We could only be so lucky if he was a poor man's version.
But to be honest every year there a couple of raw mobile PF/C tweeners with defensive versatility and some ball handling skills. Rarely do they have a Adebayo/Siakam trajectory.
Must say that Reed's mobility and physical flexibility is quite impressive, often a good indicator.
