Coming off the most productive and efficient season of his career, Naz Reid, who averaged 12 points and five rebounds on 54 percent shooting from the field and 35 percent shooting from 3-point range, is going to enter the offseason with the opportunity to change his career for the better. The big question is: can he get to a team that will give him the chance to prove his worth next season?
Reid is going to enter the offseason as one of the more underrated free-agent options on the open market. As an unrestricted free agent, the Wolves no longer hold his rights, and he’ll have the flexibility to make a move that he believes will be best for his career moving forward. If he believes he can play a big role in the developing Jazz, perhaps that could be a pairing that needs to work for both sides.
Depending on what the market looks like for him, the Jazz could view Reid as a low-risk, high-reward move. He’d be a great addition to a developing frontcourt that already has Lauri Markkanen and Walker Kessler engraved as staples in the team’s future.
At just 23 years old, Reid makes a lot of sense for a rebuilding team like the Jazz this offseason.
