Agent clarifies Reid situation at SMB
ARIZONA Reid will not be playing for San Miguel Beer against Alaska tonight, but could be back later in the PBA Governors’ Cup for the Beermen, according to the former Best Import’a agent.
Sheryl Reyes sought out the Inquirer through Twitter and explained that her client “wasn’t fired,” as earlier reported, but was, in fact, given a leave by management to allow for a leg injury to heal.
Also according to Reyes, San Miguel has asked her to sign up a replacement for Reid plus an Asian import to make up for the prolific Reid’s absence.
The Asian import and the reinforcement that would take Reid’s place, which she didn’t name, are expected to plane in on Friday.
Reid is easily one of the best scorers in the tournament, but last week, after a loss to GlobalPort, said that his Achilles is allowing for limited mobility, especially on defense.
He still scored 41 points that night.
Reid, Reyes said, will be watching the games of the Beermen that he will sit out.
