At 6-foot-11, 231 pounds, Reed has been a dynamic post player for the Heat early in summer league.
He put up 13 points and 11 rebounds in Monday’s 78-73 win over the Pistons at Amway Center and consistently looks out of place in games featuring mostly rookies and fringe players. In the first two games, he totaled 24 points, 13 rebounds and three blocked shots in 48 minutes. “He brings us a shot-blocking presence around the rim and he’s a high-motor big,” said Heat assistant Dan Craig, head coach of the summer team. “It’s contagious with everybody else. He gives you extra possessions with his offensive rebounding. He’s been tremendous.”
