DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Dallas Mavericks signed Penn State shooting guard Josh Reaves to a two-way contract after he went undrafted in last night's NBA Draft, according to multiple reports.

"This means so much to me, knowing all the hard work I have put in throughout middle school, high school and college, it's all paying off," said Reaves, via Gopsusports.com. "I went into all my workouts with the mentality of putting my head down and showcasing my abilities, athletically and how I developed over time. I know it's not the end of the journey; I know the hard work is not going to stop by any means. This is a step in the right direction. I'm really blessed to have this opportunity and going to try to make the most of it."

Reaves, 22, was the Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year. In his senior season with the Nittany Lions, he averaged 10.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.5 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. He shot 42.6 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from three-point range. 

Reaves is seen as a potential three-and-D option for Dallas.
