Willie Reed hoping for call-up to Brooklyn Nets

SportsRadio 1450

In an interview with a Springfield radio station, Armor big man Willie Reed said he's hoping for a call-up to the Nets, noting that he talked about the possibility with Toko Shengelia and Tyshawn Taylor during their three-game tour in Springfield.

"I think I'm prepared. I think I'm in the right position," the 6'10" Reed told Sports Radio 1450AM. At 22, Reed is the youngest player on the Armor roster. Equipped with a 7'3" wingspan and a 37" vertical, Reed has been improving rapidly over the course of the Armor season. He was invited to training camp by the Kings, who cut him in October.

Reed said that Shengelia and Taylor "like that I play hard, like that like that I'm in the right place in the right time," and that before they returned home, told him, "keep working and we'll see you soon."

He added that he has heard reports that he could be called up, but "when I hear a thing like that, I don't let it affect me. Even though I hear it, I cant control it."

The Nets have an open roster spot but are not expected to move on another 10-day contract anytime soon. The Nets called up three Armor players last season and another had a stint with the Hornets.
