The Lakers have locked up their promising young guard for the coming years. Los Angeles appears to be running it back after locking up many of the players that were part of their conference finals run, including Reaves. Reaves saw his minutes increase in the postseason, and he responded by becoming one of their most productive and reliable players in the playoffs. Going into his third NBA season, expect Reaves to continue to grow as a scorer and playmaker.
