When he hit free agency this summer, Reed asked his agent to reach out to the Heat, and Miami was interested. “He had that opportunity in Brooklyn and we really celebrated it with him because he earned it,” coach Erik Spoelstra said this week in the Bahamas. “He has a great motor. I really like the pace of play that he brings out there. He’s aggressive on the offensive glass. He’s an aggressive pick-and-roll player, brings a great energy out there on the court. He’s vocal. We’ve had success with bigs like that.”
A part-time poet ( you can follow him on Snapchat @ShowtimeReed33 to catch his occasional poems), Reed said he adjusted the position of his elbow this offseason to improve his free-throw shooting. Last season, he shot 54.5 percent from the charity stripe and knows he has to get better — like Whiteside did last year — if he’s going to play meaningful minutes. “I haven’t tried the jump free throw,” Reed said smiling. “I have to find what works for me and I know that’s going to be key. The more free throws I make in clutch situations the more I can be on the floor.”
