Reggie Perry recorded 15 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3PT, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, one assist, four steals, and two blocks in 22 minutes off the bench in Thursday's blowout loss to the Pelicans.
Perry had a very solid all-around performance in only 22 minutes. The Mississippi State product is averaging 17.4 minutes, 10.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 0.8 blocks in his last five games. Unfortunately, Perry is not seeing enough minutes and remains a depth piece on a struggling Blazers squad. The 22-year-old will look to continue to make his case for more minutes when the Trail Blazers visit the Mavericks on Friday.
The Brooklyn Nets have selected PF Reggie Perry with the No. 57 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Perry is a true power forward who has a nice touch beyond the arc. He emerged as one of the SEC's best players as a sophomore and should provide some depth at forward for the Nets.
F/C Reggie Perry announced his decision to enter the 2020 NBA Draft in a heartfelt video message on his Twitter account.
Perry's decision to go pro comes as no surprise as he racked up a few prestigious awards this season, including SEC All-Freshman Team (2019), First-team All-SEC (2020), and SEC Co-Player of the Year. Perry averaged a double-double in his sophomore year at Mississippi State, scoring 17.4 points along with 10.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.2 blocks across 31 games this season. He is ranked #49 on ESPN's top 100 prospect list so there is a good chance he can creep into the first-round for any team looking for an athletic rim protector with upside as a playmaker and mid-range threat. Fantasy owners may want to pay attention to where he lands as he's drawn comparisons to a poor man's Bam Adebayo.
