Willie Reed Signs G League Contract

Veteran NBA big man Willie Reed has signed a G League contract and will be eligible for the NBAGL draft later this month, according to Adam Johnson of 2 Ways & 10 Days (Twitter link).

Reed, who went undrafted out of Saint Louis University in 2011, has appeared in 152 regular season NBA games over the last three seasons, spending time with the Nets, Heat, Clippers, and Pistons during that span. In 12.4 minutes per contest, the 28-year-old has career averages of 4.9 PPG and 3.8 RPG.

Last February, Reed was released by the Pistons to clear a spot on the roster when the team acquired Jameer Nelson in a deadline-day trade. The move came shortly after word broke that the veteran big man had been suspended for six games as a result of a domestic incident involving Reed and his wife. If Reed makes it back to the NBA, he’ll have to serve that suspension before becoming eligible to play.

The G League draft is scheduled to take place on October 20 and will involve all 27 NBAGL teams.
