Kyle Ratke: There’s a reason why the Timberwolves signed Reynolds to two 10-day contracts before signing him outright. He’s a culture fit and a player that GM Scott Layden and Interim Assistant Coach Ryan Saunders were high on from the beginning. How he’ll fit in with this team in 2019-20 has yet to be seen but given the stretch we saw from him to end last season, I’d imagine he’ll be contributing somehow. Julian Andrews: Reynold’s late-season success is a perfect illustration of the value of the G-League. Reynolds wasn’t drafted but worked his way into a contract and a chance at an NBA future with the Wolves. While the draft is a dramatic event and captures the imagination in many ways, it isn’t the end-all-be-all of player evaluation—often players don’t put things together when they’re 18 or 19 years old (shocker, I know). That a player like Reynolds can work himself through the NBA’s developmental system into a career is a testament both to Reynolds and to the system that produced him.
Julian Andrews: Going forward, Reynolds needs to continue to develop his 3-point shooting and expand his game around the rim. He showed flashes of ability using his athleticism to finish at the hoop but he needs to grow as a ball handler and distributor to really take advantage of all the space his shooting—or the threat of his shooting—could open up. Reynolds is the ultimate team player. He’s competitive and wants to play as much as possible but he’s the ideal “star in your role” guy. That type of attitude often leads to NBA success and after seeing his work pay off this year there’s little doubt that Reynolds will enter the offseason ready to work. It will be fun to see him come back into camp next year and battle for a spot with a full NBA offseason under his belt. Nothing is certain, but I certainly wouldn’t bet against him.
