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 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 campaign with averages of 4.7 points and 3.1 rebounds in 10.9 minutes (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. With fellow big men Brook Lopez (rest) and Thaddeus Young (rest) also ruled out for the remainder of the season, Henry Sims, Thomas Robinson, and Chris McCullough will cover the bulk of the minutes in the frontcourt.
With Jarrett Jack (knee) the only player populating the
Willie 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.
