Reigning G League MVP stuffs the stat sheet
Paul Reed's dominant performance, arguably one of the best of the 2021 Summer League in Las Vegas, went in vain as the 76ers dropped the game against the Timberwolves in overtime.

He was picked 58th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers but that was the last time anybody should be allowed to not know who he is. He balled out for the franchise in the 2021 G League season, winning both the G League MVP and G League Rookie of the Year.

One of two overtimes games, the Timberwolves pipped the 76ers but they needed some clutch heroics by Jaden McDaniels to force overtime.
