Scottie Reynolds Rumors
Enel Brindisi announced the signing of Scottie Reynolds. The American combo guard returns to Italy after his short stint with Veroli during his rookie season. Reynolds has played with Antalya last season averaging 18ppg in TBL.
The Jazz waived Paul Carter, Trey Gilder, Keith McLeod and Scottie Reynolds on Wednesday. Utah’s roster is at 14. Jazz General Manager Kevin O’Connor said Carter could land with the Idaho Stampede, Utah’s NBA Development League affiliate. Veteran point guard Jamaal Tinsley made the initial cut. He will continue to back up Devin Harris and Earl Watson.
Lost Jermaine Anderson, Prima Veroli agreed to terms with Scottie Reynolds. The American player wad undrafted at the 2010 NBA Draft and in the Summer League scored 10 points and dished 5 assist.
Unless another team swoops in with a more attractive situation or guaranteed money, it sounds like Zabian Dowdell and Scottie Reynolds will be in the Suns’ training camp and could be competing for a roster spot.
Tellem confirmed that he’s getting closer to that goal after Reynolds – fighting back from a slight Achilles’ tendon problem – played three games for the Phoenix Suns in the Las Vegas Summer League. Reynolds finished four seasons at Villanova as the No. 2 scorer in Wildcats history, becoming the fourth first-team All-America in the school’s history. He also became the first first-team All-America to go undrafted. The Suns have offered Reynolds an invitation to their training camp, and Tellem said, “We’re talking about a potential contract.” Tellem also said, “There are plenty of other options” in Europe and the NBA Developmental League and that he would have a better handle on things within the next couple of weeks.
Scottie Reynolds’ entire career at Villanova – 139 games – was not enough to get him drafted in June. But a three-game, injury-shortened stint on the Suns summer-league squad was enough to secure him an invite to training camp. Reynolds has already been asked to camp, a source said, although he is considering offers from a few other teams.
