Phoenix Suns (2017–2018)
Reed was selected as the 32nd pick of the 2017 NBA draft by the Phoenix Suns. He joined fellow rookies Josh Jackson and Alec Peters in the 2017 NBA Summer League alongside Suns' players Dragan Bender, Marquese Chriss, Tyler Ulis, and Derrick Jones Jr. Reed signed a four-year deal with the Suns on July 6, 2017. In the 2017 Summer League, Reed recorded averages of 14.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.2 steals per game in six games.
