Reed finished Tuesday's loss to the Charge with 17 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and two steals. Reed got the start at power forward, joining the Pacers other two-way player, Edmond Sumners, as the main catalyst for Fort Wayne's offense. With three members of Fort Wayne receiving DNPs, Reed took the majority of the minutes but it's not clear if that's a strategy the Mad Ants will continue to use in the future.
Reed logged six minutes off the bench Tuesday and contributed two points (1-1 FG) and one rebound in the Pacers' 136-94 win over the Lakers. It's just the seventh appearance at the NBA level this season for Reed, who has seen most of his action with the G League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants as one of Indiana's two two-way players. The six minutes were actually a high total for Reed during the 2018-19 campaign, with the Pacers' huge margin of victory being the primary cause of that.
The Pacers assigned Reed to the G League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants on Wednesday, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports. Reed was up with the Pacers for a little over a week, with his lone appearance with the NBA team coming Dec. 28 against the Pistons. The second-year swingman has seen the court in just four games with Indiana this season and should continue to see the bulk of his minutes in Fort Wayne for the rest of the 2018-19 campaign.
Reed scored 26 points (9-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with three rebounds, three steals and two assists in the loss Friday to Long Island. Reed was one of two players for the Mad Ants to score 20-plus points, as the guard and Stephan Hicks combined to provide most of the damage offensively. Reed is averaging 14.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.1 steals through 10 games this season.
Reed will sign a two-way contract with the Pacers once he clears waivers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. With C.J. Wilcox (Achilles) done for the season, the Pacers had another two-way contract open up for them, and they'll look to add Reed once he clears waivers. Reed will be allowed to spend up to 45 days with Indiana this season under his two-way deal.
