heatPower Forward/Center: 6’10, 220 lbs; 3rd year, St. Louis 

NBA Role: relentless rebounder UnderDOG

A legitimate UnderDOG, Willie Reed’s journey to the league is one full of perseverance and work ethic – played for 4 different D-League squads & 1 overseas before finally breaking through as an NBA player; adds depth to Erik Spoelstra’s frontcourt – Reed’s a mighty athlete who runs the floor and competes hard as a hybrid big; very good rebounder, makes a living on the offensive glass – uses his strong frame & quick jumping ability to sky in for cleanup flushes or tip outs; far from Willis the Hall of Famer (no relation), Willie‘s next step is to master a J that extends to 15-18 feet – candidate to hover around ‘just made it’ double-doubles (10 & 10) once its more respectable; fought hard for his spot (Summer League legend) – has Reed found a home in South Beach? – Coach Spo loves scrappers, Reed could study Udonis Haslem & groom into a winner

Signature Slam: two-handed putback
