Austin Reaves on joining German national team


German national team could have two Lakers on its roster in Dennis Schroder and Austin Reaves. But it is unlikely to happen this year.

While Schroder has been a longtime member of the national team, for Reaves it would be his debut on the international stage. The 24-year-old shooting guard was asked about his plans for the national team during the season-closing interview.

“We haven’t had any conversations recently. It’s been a couple of months since I talked to anybody,” Reaves said. “But the whole plan was not to do anything this summer, but eventually I would like to experience that. But that’s really it.”

Germany will participate at this years FIBA World Cup in August-September. The team will play in Group E alongside Finland, Australia and co-host Japan.

This season Reaves averaged 13 points, 3 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 28.8 minutes per game. His numbers in the playoffs were 16.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 36.2 minutes per game.
