Willie Reed is excited for the opportunity with the Nets.
I had gotten the opportunity to get called up in the past, but this past season it didn’t happen," he said. "It just made me want to work harder. I figured that if that call-up wasn’t coming, there was something more I needed to do or something I needed to work on, so I was in the gym every single day." Reed averaged 13.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks while shooting better than 60 percent during summer league and is expected to serve in an energy role for Brooklyn. Aug 17 - 9:52 AM

Willie Reed has reportedly inked a one-year deal with the Nets.

Reed will play for the Nets Summer League team in Las Vegas, and he'll add some depth to Brooklyn's frontcourt. He won't be worth drafting in any fantasy leagues.

Willie Reed scored 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds as a starter for Miami during Sunday's Summer League win vs. the Nets.

He made 8-of-12 field goals against Nets center Cliff Alexander, and if nothing else Reed gave the league's GMs something to mull over when filling out their training camp rosters.
Jul 5 - 7:33 PM

Willie Reed will play for the Heat's Summer League team.

Reed isn't likely to be on the roster when the regular-season begins, so he'll really have to impress during Summer League. If he somehow does make the roster, he still is very unlikely to have any fantasy value in standard leagues.

Brooklyn Nets waive F Willie Reed.

Reed was a long shot to make the Nets' final roster, so this move comes as no surprise. The 24-year-old played well in the D-League last season, but isn't a player fantasy owners should have on their draft boards.

The Nets signed Willie Reed to their training camp roster.

Reed is going to be the 20th player at camp for the Nets and has a very slim chance to make the team. The 6'9 forward played just 31 minutes during the 2013 preseason with the Grizzlies.

The Kings waived F Willie Reed on Sunday.

Reed played well in the D-League last season but he didn't appear in any games after being called up by the Kings. He'll be playing for 10-day contracts this season, and doesn't merit fantasy owners' attention.

The Kings have recalled F Willie Reed from the D-League and he'll be available on Tuesday night.

With Isaiah Thomas, Reggie Evans and Rudy Gay all out, Reed could actually see a few minutes tonight.

Sacramento Kings sign F Willie Reed.

The Kings have signed Reed to rest-of-season contract that has an option for next season and the 23-year-old will join the team for their upcoming three-game trip. He was in camp with the Kings last season and has since spent his time with the Springfield Armor of the D-League. Reed was averaging 14.8 points, 10.1 boards, and 1.6 blocks with the Armor, but will be hard-pressed to find enough minutes to provide any fantasy value with the Kings.

Grizzlies officially sign Willie Reed for the remainder of the season.

Reed averaged 11.7 points and 6.09 rebounds in the D-League this season. He'll provide Memphis depth in their frontcourt but likely won't get more than a handful of minutes.

Willie Reed is expected to sign with the Grizzlies.

He average 11.7 points and 6.0 boards in the D-League this year. Reed is a 6'9" forward and won't have much opportunity unless the Grizzlies are decimated by injuries or rest more than half their team in the upcoming two games.
