Reed agreed to a two-year deal with the Heat on Sunday, Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post reports. Reed is expected to add depth behind Hassan Whiteside and Josh McRoberts. It's unlikely that behind these two, he'll be able to submit useful fantasy statistics. The Heat signed him after he impressed the team during the 2015 Summer League. Reed appeared in 39 games for the Nets, averaging 4.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks over 11 minutes per game.
Reed failed to receive a qualifying offer from the Nets, making him an unrestricted free agent, Alex Kennedy of BasketballInsiders.com reports. Despite being 26 years old, the 2015-16 season was Reed's first year in the league and he ended up playing in 39 games for the Nets, finishing with averages of 4.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.8 blocks over 11 minutes. He's a bit limited as a shooter, as he doesn't have much range, but the 6-foot-10 Reed should still get a look from teams in need of depth in the frontcourt. No matter where he lands, it's highly unlikely he's able to post fantasy worthy numbers in his second season in the NBA.
Reed will remain away from the team through the end of the season while tending to a personal issue, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. Reed has been in and out of the rotation on a seemingly night-to-night basis for much of the season, and he'll finish his rookie season with averages of 4.7 points and 3.1 rebounds in 10.9 minutes per game (39 games). The reasoning behind his absence is unclear, but Reed will be unavailable as the Nets finish out the final five games of their schedule.
Reed (knee) will be inactive for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports. With Jarrett Jack (knee) the only player populating the Nets' injury list following the recent return of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (knee), Reed will be forced to occupy the Nets' second inactive spot. It's the second straight game that Reed won't dress, as coach Tony Brown understandably sticks with the rotation that netted a win Thursday against the powerful Cavaliers. Reed should return to the court again before the season is out, but don't expect him to receive huge minute totals unless either Brook Lopez or Thaddeus Young misses time with an injury.
Reed (knee) was announced as the starting center for Saturday's game against the Pistons, David Mayo of MLive.com reports. Reed missed the last two games with a knee injury, but he was activated Saturday in place of Brook Lopez, who was a late scratch fro Saturday's contest due to an illness.
