Willie Reed's hashtag, #CallWilleUp, seems to have finally worked. Reed has been signed by the Kings for the remainder of the seasons, sources told RealGM.

The deal includes a team option for the 2014-2015 season. D-League Digest reports that once signed, the Kings will assign Reed to the Reno Bighorns, their D-League affiliate, to help ensure Reno makes the playoffs.

Reed has dominated this season in the D-League for the Springfield Armor, and many were calling for the Nets to give him an opportunity in Brooklyn. Reed is averaging 14 points and 10 rebounds in 31 minutes per game while shooting 59% from the floor this season in Springfield.

This comes on the heels of the report that the Armor are being sold and will be moved to Grand Rapids where tehy will become the Pistons' D-League affiliate. As of now, the Nets have no D-League affiliate for next year

Reed went to training camp with the Kings in 2012, but was cut before the season started.
