The Brooklyn Nets drafted John A. Logan guard Jay Scrubb with the 55th pick in the 2020 NBA draft. Shortly after, they agreed to trade him to the Los Angeles Clippers for the 54th pick, all-around forward Reggie Perry. Brooklyn will look to develop Perry into a good role player to come off the bench.
Perry is a physical 6’10 power forward that can score inside the paint and shoot from behind the arc. During his two years at Mississippi State, he averaged 13.4 points and 8.6 rebounds, all while shooting a high 50.1 percent from the field. Perry is very agile for a big man with an excellent jump shot and can rebound the ball. Though he is very young, he has some things he can improve on during his career, targeting his interior defense. Perry can also be turnover-prone at times. Also, he doesn’t have the greatest size to play in the paint at the next level.
With Nets help, Perry can turn into an outstanding role player off the bench. With a skill set like his, he can definitely help Brooklyn come out on top as favorites to win the NBA finals this upcoming season.
