The Lakers signed Reeves to a four-year, $56 million contract extension this summer. In addition, the Lakers have completed preparations to challenge for the championship next season by recruiting a number of players. A notable achievement is the recruitment of Christian Wood.메이저놀이터

Wood is a big man with solid offensive ability. However, his passive defense and being a troublemaker held him back.

Reeves said: “Christian Wood brings versatility to our team. We are excited to be playing with him. Wood has undoubted talent as he has shown over the past few years.

The Lakers showed off their potential by advancing to the Western Conference Finals as the 7th seed last season. Reeves is now looking higher.

Reeves said, “The team has an opportunity. We retained the core players who played in the Western Conference Finals and brought in new players. I hope we can play 82 games together with energy next season. After building chemistry, we can advance to the playoffs and have a good team.” “I hope I get good results,” he said, strengthening his resolve.
