Plus the proceeds from the PS5s.

I'm not as concerned with his Free throw rate as his propensity to try and do to much with the ball. He has a wild streak and does dumb things from time to time. He also gets muscled in the post on defense.

Yeah, I just mean statistically. Obviously he has flaws or he'd be playing minutes with big boy club.

There is a rumor that Paul Reed will have his contract converted before the season ends, because he'd be a restricted Free agent at the end of the season if not. I'm not sure if it's true.

Either way Paul Reed has got to be anxious. OKC is playing G-leaguers, Pokusevski and Moses Brown starter and rotation minutes, and Paul Reed outplayed both of them head-to-head.

If he was drafted by OKC, he would be playing as well

I assume they had him sign a 2 year two way deal? That seems pretty standard for draft picks though I haven’t seen it confirmed anywhere.

I’m also not sure exactly how coming off two way deals work, like do we retain exclusive negotiating rights the way we would with a draft pick that went and played in Europe or whatever?

If he really becomes a restricted free agent this summer then yeah it probably makes sense to sign him to a similar contract as Joe after the deadline once they’ve presumably traded or cut some of the guys with expiring contracts.

1. It's easy to sneer at 1.5- 2mil per year, if you are comparing to other players, but he's only making about 200K this season.

2. Dominating the G-league is one thing, but it doesn't guarantee you are going to stick in the NBA. All you need to look at is Christian Wood, or his teammate Rayjon Tucker, who dominated and signed a one year contract and found himself on the street before his contract was guaranteed.

3. He's only 21 years old. He's still draft age. Shake's contract is about the same as the average #30, 1st round pick, and unlike draft picks, his 3rd and 4th year are GUARANTEED.


Agreed

Reed was the 58th pick in the draft

If he’s able to secure a Shake type deal 12 months later, it would be a fantastic result for him


Plus it would be a double win for Reed. His per diem meal money, for an NBA season, would be almost as much as he made playing an entire season in the G-league. :D
Please allow me to introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste.

You want it to be one way....but it's the other way.

I know Shams apparently mentioned it in a story for the athletic. I also thought he signed a two year 2-way deal. This was the first time I've heard he could be a Restricted Free agent at the end of year. Maybe the writer is mistaken.

Yeah Shams said Reed’s contract was expected to be converted but didn’t specify a timeline, whether this season or during the summer. Probably just someone running with that.

76ers rookie Paul Reed — aka “BBall Paul” — finished an impressive run in the G League’s bubble in Orlando for the Delaware Blue Coats: 22.3 points, 11.9 rebounds, two steals and 1.3 blocks per game while shooting 44.4 percent from 3-point range. Reed is on a two-way contract, but look for him to have that converted to a standard NBA deal at some point.

I imagine it would be after the deadline once some of the bench fodder is cleared out. Hopefully we've got multiple roster spots to fill.

Can't afford to let him get away like we did with Christian Wood..i hope Doc starts to trust him more and gives him some minutes because that's the only way these guys are gonna develop. Well done to the young man.
