Josh Reaves (6-4, 214) just completed his rookie season as a two-way player for Dallas. Reaves, who appeared in four games for the Mavericks in 2019-20, spent the majority of the season with the team’s G-League affiliate, the Texas Legends. In 37 G-League games (all starts) for the Legends, he averaged 13.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.0 steals in 30.8 minutes per contest.
The undrafted guard signed a two-way deal with Dallas on July 29, 2019, after he completed a four-year college career at Penn State. As a senior in 2018-19, Reaves was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, becoming just the second Nittany Lion ever to win the award (Calvin Booth, 1998). He was also a two-time Big Ten All-Defensive Team selection (2018, 2019) and led the Big Ten in steals per game in three consecutive seasons from 2016-17 to 2018-19.
Born in Fairfax, Virginia, to Liset Reaves, Reaves holds dual citizenship as a Bolivian-American due to his mother being a native of Bolivia. He is the first Bolivian player to play in the NBA.
