Reed was arrested early Sunday on a misdemeanor battery charge, ESPN.com reports.
The arrest reportedly stems from a domestic violence incident, but with the legal process just beginning, we won't speculate on a potential absence for Reed. The Clippers have yet to comment, but the young big man, who signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with Los Angeles during this offseason, could face discipline depending on the outcome of his case.
In his second NBA season, Reed played a crucial role off the bench for the Heat last year, as he served as Hassan Whiteside's primary backup at center. Despite playing just over 14 minutes per game last year, Reed still managed to average 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game while hitting 57 percent of his field goals. In Los Angeles, he'll add some needed depth to the center position behind DeAndre Jordan.
Reed plans to become an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
Reed has previously expressed interest in returning to Miami, however his decision will ultimately depend on whether or not the Heat have the cap room to pay what the market says he's worth. Reed participated in 77 games for the Heat during their 2016-17 season, registering 5.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks in 14.5 minutes per game.
Reed collected 16 points (8-9 FG) and six rebounds across 15 minutes in Wednesday's 110-102 victory over the Wizards.
Having eclipsed 10 points in a game only a handful of times this year, Reed put up one of his better outings in the season finale trying to help push his team into the playoffs, even with limited minutes. Unfortunately, his hot hand from the floor Wednesday night didn't matter as the Bulls won as well, so he can only really hang his hat on the 5.1 points he averaged throughout the season.
Reed (calf) will suit up for Friday's game against the Magic, but may not see his normal allotment of minutes, Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post reports.
Reed was able to take part in the Heat's morning shootaround and noted afterward that he felt well enough to play, but since he's not fully recovered from his inflamed right calf, coach Erik Spoelsta may only ask the backup center to play in brief spurts during both halves. In 50 appearances this season, Reed is averaging 14.7 minutes per game, so he won't see extensive playing time once he's further removed from the calf injury.
