I dont think Doc isnt high on him. Doc is just using him on the right situations. Like Reed is soft, so he usually pairs him with Drummond. Then he plays Reed a lot whenever we face Siakam and Giannis so Reed can have a feel on what it feels like to defend those two.

Think of how big it is if Reed can slow down Siakam, Giannis and possibly Durant. Its like when Raps added Gasol to neutralize Biid.

Doc isn't high on young players I get it. The young guys also have to show and prove when they get their turn

Ok, but why didn't he play the Reed & Bassey duo more in the recent loss against Atlanta? They were doing really well.

Because there’s not much need to play Reed because we’re not facing Siakam or Giannis. We can get more net positive benefits by letting Thybulle or even some shooter with size like Korkmaz play PF

Im not Doc Rivers but thats just my guess.
