Penn State Hoops’ Josh Reaves Receives 67 Overall Rating In NBA 2k21

Former Penn State men’s basketball star Josh Reaves has officially received a 67 overall rating in NBA 2k21. His rating is good for No. 15 among all rookies in the western conference.

According to, Reaves’ best attributes in the game are athleticism and playmaking. He also received impressive 80 and 81 ratings in stamina and overall durability, respectively.

Reaves went unselected in the 2019 NBA draft, but later was named to the Dallas Maverick’s summer league roster. A solid performance from the Nittany Lion lead to him signing a two-way contract with the Mavs in late July of 2019. He later made his NBA debut on January 2, 2020.

He also traveled with Dallas to the NBA bubble in Orlando, where he scored the first points of his career.

Reaves was a defensive menace during his four years in Happy Valley. An average of 2.5 steals and one block-per-game in the 2018-19 season earned him the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year award. He shot 43.8% from the field and averaged just shy of nine points-per-game as a Nittany Lion.
