HoopsHype Ryan Reid rumors
The Thunder have a full roster so to sign Fisher someone has to be cut. Who will it be? Probably Ryan Reid. The reason being that he can be bought out for cheap, re-sign with Tulsa for the rest of the D-League season and then OKC could choose to re-sign him over the summer if it so chooses. The question is: Who would have more value to the Thunder bench? Ryan Reid, or Derek Fisher? Sulia
Nick Collison: Today, the cycle continues. We make sure our rookies this season—Reggie Jackson and Ryan Reid—wear their pink Justin Bieber and "My Little Pony" backpacks and carry their oversized teddy bears on all road trips. Last year, Royal had Cole Aldrich's car filled to the roof with packing peanuts. He says he went easy on him—it could have been buttered popcorn. Kendrick Perkins says in Boston they made a rookie go out in a foot of snow and do 100 pushups in only his spandex shorts. GQ.com
The Oklahoma City Thunder has assigned forward Ryan Reid to the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti.

Oklahoma City Thunder reserve Ryan Reid will miss two to four weeks after having surgery to repair a broken nose. General manager Sam Presti said Wednesday that Reid had a successful procedure performed. The Thunder traded for Reid after he was chosen in the second round of the 2010 draft.

On the day of the 2010 NBA Draft, the Indiana Pacers selected Florida State forward Ryan Reid with the 57th pick and promptly traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a swap for LSU forward-center Magnum Rolle. While Rolle will be competing for a roster spot after receiving a training camp invite by the Pacers, it appears that Reid could very well be playing in Poland next season. According to The Hoops Market via Polski Kosz, “The Polish team is reported to be close to sign Ryan Reid for the next season.” With the Thunder already having to waive former Washington State guard Kyle Weaver due to a roster crunch, it appears unlikely that the team will give Reid the same courtesy that Indiana extended Rolle.
