Team Member Information
TRADED TO HOUSTON ROCKETS 2007.
Justin Michael Reed was born January 16, 1982 in Jackson, Mississippi. Reed played collegiate ball at the University of Mississippi. He led the University of Mississippi's Ole Miss Rebels as part of the "Provine Posse." The posse consisted of three former Provine High School teammates who played together for the Rebels. Reed along with Aaron Harper and David Sanders put on stellar shows for Ole Miss.
Reed quickly became an all-round player at Ole Miss and a dominant force in the Southeastern Conference. An All-SEC selection in each of his four years at The University of Mississippi, Reed led the team both on the court and in the locker room. As a freshman, Reed guided the Rebels through two NCAA tournament wins in route to a first ever "Sweet Sixteen" appearance for the Ole Miss program in 2001.
Following his successful career as a forward at the University of Mississippi, Reed was selected in the second round by the Boston Celtics in the 2004 NBA Draft. Although he did not play much in his rookie year, he gained a reputation for playing tenacious defense. He was placed on the Injured List several times with right infrapetella tendonitis and also with a left hip pointer. He appeared in six playoff games for the Celtics, averaging 1.2 points per game. He was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves on January 26th 2006 in a multi-player deal.
Justin Reed has enjoyed much success with the Timberwolves. At the end of the 2006 season, he became a restricted free agent. Minnesota rewarded him with a three year contract rumored to be worth in the 4.5 million dollar range. Let’s hope this shoe size 14 rebel can continue to stay healthy and play strong for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
