Nets Sign Willie Reed

The Nets have signed free agent combo forward Willie Reed, the team announced via press release. Shams Charania of RealGM first reported the deal, which is for one year. It’s partially guaranteed for $500K, according to TNT’s David Aldridge (on Twitter). Neither report indicates a salary, but since Brooklyn’s taxpayer’s mid-level appears to have been used up on deals for Wayne Ellington and Shane Larkin, Reed is almost certainly getting the minimum salary.

Assuming so, Reed’s contract is worth $947,276, the two-year veteran’s minimum, even though he’s yet to appear in an NBA regular season game. That’s because he was on the roster for the Grizzlies during the 2012/13 regular season, and the Kings carried him in the 2013/14 season. The Nets had him during preseason last fall, but they cut him before the start of the regular season.

Reed earned his way back to Brooklyn with a strong showing on the Heat’s summer league team, as he averaged 13.5 points and 7.8 rebounds in 25.8 minutes per game across his first four contests. The 25-year-old, who went undrafted out of St. Louis in 2011, will now play for the Nets summer league team.

    Why did the Heat allow this to happen?

      My guess is that they couldn’t sign him yet, and he got an immediate offer. Not much you can do to that

    Good for him to get his opportunity. It was possible the Heat might have had a spot for him had he waited until we got rid of birdman, but can’t beat a guarantee in that range, right then. The Heat have done a good job of getting some of these type of guys into the league. Maybe we can bring back Khem Birch?

    As for the Nets, they get a rim protector they need, and added to the altheticism they’ve brought in. That being said, they have a lot of pieces in their front court, so I’m curious how playing time is going to be allotted.

      Just a thought.. Dexter Pittman was a Summer League beast too

      • Z.....

        But he is more of a Kendrick Perkins type. Reed and Birch play more above the rim. Birch is very similar to birdman in some ways. He is just slightly shorter though
