The Los Angeles Lakers had one of their breakout stars of last season in Austin Reaves, as the two years ago undrafted player was able to make himself standout in his year 2 in the NBA.

Reaves started the season being the 2nd to third option coming from the bench to the end being the starting shooting guard and the third-best player on the roster just behind LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

After what Austin has been able to achieve this season, signing a max-extension with LA for four years, 56 million, releasing his first signature shoes to be sold out in minutes, playing his first playoffs, and being one of the standouts to be one of the best players in Team USA ahead of the upcoming FIBA World Cup.

But now coach Ham has raised the bar on the expectation Austin Reaves has to meet in the upcoming 2023-24 NBA season. As Darvin said of the SG that will become an All-Star in the upcoming years.
